Born and raised in Brooklyn New York, Shelley Rome realized her passion for radio and broadcasting at a very young age. The Pop/Rock Radio jock would constantly listen to terrestrial radio and imitate the prominent DJs. It was only right that she’d pursue her love of radio eventually.
While attending Brooklyn College, Shelley began her on air experience with her own show on the college station. Shelley coupled her radio education with internships at Jive Records, MTV and with Clear Channel New York.
Due to her outgoing and friendly personality, Shelley was occasionally invited on air with the gang to offer her opinion on the current topics. She was then hired as a phone producer for Clear Channel New York. Never afraid to jump on the microphone, Shelley would appear on air at night, giving entertainment news updates. That eventually landed her a show of her own on GOOM Radio, the digital radio start-up spearheaded by Clear Channel and Google Audio executives.
During her time at GOOM, Shelley co-hosted a Rock show, a Teen show, and did mid-day shifts on their Top 40 station – interviewing some of the biggest stars in music including The Script, Sean Kingston, Taio Cruz, Miranda Cosgrove, Matisyahu and almost every teen star on Nickelodeon including taking the entire cast of the very popular show “Victorious” go karting. She’s also taken her show on the road, broadcasting from Los Angeles for an entire week and from listeners’ homes on a weekly basis.
