Martha Quinn is perhaps most famous for being one of the original veejays on MTV but like so many of us, she started in college radio including the ‘radio station with a college attached’ at WNYU, New York. However, NOT everyone gets lead roles TV commercials for clients like McDonald's, Country Time Lemonade Campbell's Soup and others.
Rolling Stone magazine readers voted her "MTV's Best-Ever VJ," and by Allure Magazine, which referred to the 80s decade as "the Martha Quinn years." She even lent her name, face and voice to The '80s Game with Martha Quinn, a PC trivia game! She later joined Sirius Satellite Radio which merged with XM, the channel was rebranded as The 80s on 8, and she joins other original MTV VJs in hosting programs for The 80s on 8. Since last summer, Bay Area listeners can get their 80’s fix on KOSF, which became the market's first all-'80s radio station last summer as I Heart the 80’s @ 103.7!
Martha continues to have a great run, seizing opportunities to ‘do it all’, from TV and film to satellite and now local radio…and even raising a family in the process! She shares some keys to that success, and tells us some of HER role models!
The new year brings a time for reflection, critical review and planning for the next chapter.
