Hey there, SouthCoast! Allow me to introduce myself. I began my radio career five years ago as an intern trying to finish my Communications degree at the University of Rhode Island. After graduation, I landed a role as Promotions Assistant, but my heart belonged in the studio. I worked weird hours and trained tirelessly to hone in on my craft, and get a chance to be on-air. I have been on the airwaves since 2016 and have enjoyed every second of it. Get ready, SouthCoast, I’m a morning person, and I will bring as much energy to you as your first cup of coffee! When the microphones are off, you will find me at my Kickboxing Dojo, where I train and participate in amateur kickboxing! Martial arts are a passion of mine, so if there is a UFC card on PPV, chances are I dropped the money to watch it or attend it. I’ve always been a foodie and I love trying anything and everything. I have been lucky enough to take my food obsession to television by hosting “Meeting Up with Maddie” on NBC10’s “Studio10,” a lifestyle segment where I try all of the local restaurants. My taste buds are in heaven. I have a huge Italian family, I’m five feet tall and sassy, and I will argue anyone who thinks hot coffee is better than iced. But most importantly, I am a Fun 107 on-air host, and I couldn’t be happier about it!
