Anything But Ordinary: Meet Radio Personality Loren Petisce

Filed Under: Featured Stories, In 2021, January, Other News

Where Do You Work: Country 102.5 & 105.7 WROR in Boston. 

How Long Have You Been In  Radio: I just celebrated my 16th anniversary in the radio industry.

What Inspired Your Career? I used to tape songs off the radio when I was a kid, and I thought the DJs on the radio were so cool, I wanted to be just like them, so I think that’s what made me get into radio. Also, I’ve always been the type to go against the crowd, so when everyone told me being a radio DJ was “weird” or that it would never happen, it made me want to pursue it more. 

Favorite Song: My absolute favorite song ever is “Bittersweet Symphony”  by The Verve. I even walked down the aisle at my wedding to the instrumental version of it! 

Favorite Artist: The band 311 (remember, the alternative rock reggae band from the ‘90s?). I know, it’s so random and weird, but they got me through my high school years and I have loved them ever since. I’ve seen them in concert at least 30 times, and I’ve even gone on two 311 cruises!

What’s Special About Your Job: I think it’s tough to narrow it down, so I’d say it’s all the times I’ve seen how radio makes a difference in other people’s lives. I believe that’s why I ended up in this career – to make a positive impact on others. Music is healing in so many ways, and there’ve been countless times when a listener has told me that a song I played for them or hearing my familiar voice has gotten them through a tough time, a loss, the death of a loved one, a surgery, or a bad day. THAT is always mind blowing to me, how something I did had that much power to help someone else; so that is always my favorite part. 

What’s Next? Well, in addition to radio, I launched my own business this year, I offer public speaking coaching as well as talent coaching for radio industry professionals looking to improve their skills and knowledge. In addition to my coaching services, I also do voiceover work and IVR (on hold) phone messages for businesses. Besides that, I love to read, I do some writing here and there and, once the pandemic passes, I can’t wait to start traveling again. I want to go EVERYWHERE!
