Brittany Temple wanted to work in radio since she was a kid -- fascinated with what potentially went on behind the scenes. She would begin her media career interning in television as a student at Ramapo College of New Jersey, but she still held fast to an interest in radio. While at Ramapo, Brittany took a course on ‘Writing for News Radio’, with Steve Baltin -- a former CBS News producer, who mentored her and helped her forge a relationship with the bosses at WCBS-880AM, leading to her first job in radio.
While at CBS Radio, Brittany fine-tuned her skills working with an incredibly talented slate of reporters and anchors, under the guidance of News Director Tim Scheld. This led to her transition to SiriusXM Radio, where she was a Producer for “Make It Plain with Mark Thompson”, including as the show transitioned to becoming one of the top morning shows on the platform. Her segment, “Women’s Wednesday”, which she produced and hosted, brought a needed focus to women’s issues and important news for women across the globe.
Brittany is currently earning her master’s degree in English from Seton Hall University, where she has a concentration in fiction & non-fiction writing, and is expected to graduate with honors.
