SPOTLIGHT: NICOLE RYAN
Host, SiriusXm Hit 1’s The Morning Mash Up
The rise of TV and Radio Host, Nicole Ryan is a story for entitled Millennials everywhere. Starting out at the front desk of the Sirius Satellite offices when it was still in fledgling start-up phase, Nicole took the opportunity to make herself memorable, so much so that even Howard Stern himself became enthralled with her. Soon after, she landed herself on the radio, doing promos and sweepers.
Producers for SiriusXM took notice of Nicole’s natural fit for radio; her voice was sonically pleasing, she was likable, and she could strike up a conversation with anyone that came walking through the studio doors. It wasn’t long before they offered her the co-host position on The Morning Mash Up, their most listened to morning show (next to Howard Stern), on Hits 1. Nicole was an instant success and quickly expanded her role to include entertainment reporter and producer for Hits 1’s “411” segment which provides listeners with hourly updates in the world of music, movies, television, and pop culture as a whole.
As the popularity of Morning Mash Up continued to grow, Nicole solidified herself as a pop culture expert and started to branch out into television. She made appearances on E!’s Chelsea Lately, The Food Network’s Guys Big Bite and Vh1’s You Oughta Know Concert series. Before long she landed her own weekly show on Fuse TV titled The United States of Hip Hop where she interviewed such industry heavyweights as: Talib Kweli, Kendrick Lamar, Chris Rock and many more. In 2017, VH1 had her co-‐ host guest appearances on their Morning Buzz with Nick Lachey. In 2018, Awestruck, a division of Awesomeness TV, created a digital series around Nicole, titled On-Air Mom which showcased Nicole as a working mom in the industry but also as a mother and wife and the balance of both.
Nicole Ryan has also been a spokesperson for Nivea, 808 Audio, Uppababy, and Jetblack. She will soon be announcing a podcast series with a major media company that will see her as the host. The network will integrate her with brands whose messaging is in line with Nicole’s passions and interests and speaks to her millennial focused target audience of moms.
Nicole’s magnetic and quick-witted personality is the reason she is a requested interviewer by many well-known celebrities including: Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, Seth Rogan, Katy Perry, Hugh Jackman, Lady Gaga, Neil Patrick Harris, J. Lo and Adam Levine. Her approach is disarming, and it allows Nicole to lock her guest and her audience into an engaging conversation that is interesting and meaningful.

Not only is she a TV/Radio Host, Brand Ambassador and Pop Culture Expert, she is also a Key Note Speaker, Chef, Wife, and Mother. Ms. Ryan holds each role in her life with the same weight, and that is what makes her so relatable.
