Chantel Just Traveled 1,383 Miles to Become the Host of the New 94.9 HOM Morning Show
Well, it happened. I moved 1,383 miles from Orlando, Florida, to Portland, Maine.
My name is Chantel, and I was born and raised on the outskirts of Cambridge, Massachusetts. Yes, I do have a Bostonian accent.
I went to school at Emerson College where I found my true passion and love for radio.
I did step away from radio for a couple of years to work as a teaching assistant for children with special needs, but I missed being on the airwaves and went back into radio in Boston.
I chose to have an early "retirement" and left Boston to go to the sunny state of Florida.
I know, I am too young to retire, and after two years of living in Orlando and going to theme parks almost daily, I chose to move back to New England.
This time, I am in a state that I don't know much about... Maine! I need to go exploring!
Honestly, other than having to shovel again, I am wicked excited to be back in New England and close to my family.
I was lucky enough to get offered an amazing position with Townsquare Media as the new Morning Show host and content creator for 94.9 WHOM.
I cannot wait to be talking your ears off and bringing you the best mix of the '80s, '90s and today from 6 to 10 a.m. Monday through Friday.
I am very lucky that there are no cameras in the studio, due to the fact that I will be having my own dance party in there. I don't think you really want to see that. (Or maybe you do?)
Here's a little bit about me...
I am a huge Red Sox fan, and I would live in Fenway if I could.
I am a huge fan of horror and you will probably catch me roaming the streets of Salem, Massachusetts, all year long (we know that it is a madhouse come October).
I love going to theme parks...and yes, that includes New England theme parks (Canobie Lake Park, Funtown Splashtown, and Six Flags).
You are likely to find me hanging out at a barcade (hogging the Galaga machine) or playing pool with a glass of whiskey.
In normal conversation, I usually use a lot of puns or will quote songs/movies (honestly, no idea why I do this).
Last thing to note...
I look really cool with a saw in my hand...now I just need to know if I can cut down my own tree!
All in all, I am excited to become a part of this team and a part of the community here in Maine!
Let's do this!
