Angela Greene's career at Atlanta's Jazz Station 91.9 WCLK began in 1986 when she began working fill-in airshifts. Eventually she co-hosted a Top 20 Jazz Countdown show and ultimately became the afternoon host of “Hot Ice.” It was here she was educated on mainstream jazz and developed a passion for smooth jazz.
Her next station was an Oldies station, Fox 97, where she was known as Maria Michaels; it was a very short stint. The next stop was Kiss 104, hosting Love Songs and a Touch of Jazz where she worked for a little over a year. Her next stop was WSB, B98.5. She was delighted when she got an offer to work at Atlanta’s ultimate radio station, V-103 in 1993.
Angela started a community service initiative, Angela Greene’s Women on Top Awareness Series, a workshop series devoted to educating and empowering women on such topics as Car Buying for Women, Child Support Recovery, Domestic Violence, Single Parenting etc. The City of Atlanta Mayor’s Office Sponsored the series and awarded Angela the city’s top honor, The Phoenix Award, for her work.
Angela returned to Kiss104 for a second stint in 2000, working as the traffic anchor for the Tom Joyner Morning Show.
Angela has since returned to her roots, writing. She recently self-published her first book, Unnecessary Roughness-The Story of a Mother’s Fight for Justice, which highlights her journey through four jurisdictions as a pro se litigant in a civil rights case. Her book is available on Amazon and can be found in the Georgia State University Law Library and the Mississippi Department of Archives and History. Plans are currently underway to have the book developed into a movie.
Recently, Angela was a contributing writer the Huff Post and the Gwinnett Citizen. She is very passionate about social justice and education issues. She also serves as Director of Public Affairs and Media Relations for Black Women in Radio. Finally, Angela is the Founder of Change Agents Advocacy Group, an education advocacy groups that advocates for special education students.
There are few things she loves more than a good fight, except of course, her 18-year-old identical twin daughters, Malia and Sharena.
In 2019, Angela was welcomed back to her very first radio station, Jazz 91.9 WCLK where she hosts Jazz It Up on Saturdays from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
