OK. Writing about myself is like the worst and most difficult thing ever. So really, I’m going to suggest you get to know me on social media! Check out where you can find me at the bottom of this page. But, alright, who doesn’t love a good challenge?! Let’s give this a try…

I’m Elaina! I grew up in California, parts of Los Angeles, and then San Diego. I’ve always felt like San Diego was more home than anywhere. I’ll spare you the boring details, but I kind of fell into radio while going to college at San Diego State University and simultaneously working for Entertainment Tonight/The Insider, and a radio station in San Diego! Spoiler alert…Radio is what I ended up falling in love with. I LOVE telling stories, hearing stories, and music. Yeah, it’s pretty much the perfect place for me.

Radio has taken me across the country, and now to here in Nashville, which I LOVE!

When I’m not on air you can find me at concerts, out with friends, dancing, singing…but real talk, I’m probably with my dog Zoey while scrolling through social media.
