SPECIAL GUEST

Sunny Love



Sunny Love is the newest member to the Mix92.3 on air family, but she is no stranger to radio. The radio bug bit her at a very early age while listening to Detroit legends like the Electrifying MOJO and John Mason. Little did she know that one day she would walk the halls where those greats once walked! She started her radio career as a board operator for Detroit’s first black owned talk radio station, WCHB. From there, she went on to work as a temporary employee at WJLB where her love of radio truly blossomed and inspired her to pursue a full time position at the station. Over the past 18 years, Sunny has worked on and off for iHeartradio in roles ranging from sales assistant to traffic manager, and just about everything in between.

Sunny has always told anyone who would listen that her true talents would be best served from behind a microphone, and now she is getting the chance to prove it with her Friday night shift on Mix 92.3. She also does voice-over work, and hosts concerts, comedy shows, and other events. Her bright smile and joyful personality can be felt through the airwaves each and every time she is on the air. She ends every shift by reminding the audience to be the change they want to see.
