Michelle Taylor, until most recently 'the other woman on LITE-FM', landed in the Hudson Valley during the summer of 1998. Originally from Westchester County, she now calls Wallkill / Plattekill home with her 'family', Allen, Samantha and Nicole and their dogs and many reptiles. Michelle has been the mid-day host on 92.1 LITE-FM since 2002 and responsible for 'keeping you company' throughout your day.
With entertainment in her blood, Michelle's grandfather was the host of 'Coy's Corner' on WNBC-AM in the 1940's. As far back as she can remember, Michelle has always wanted to 'be on the radio'.
Given the gift of gab, she set her site on her communications training and development and received her start in radio on WEBK-FM in Killington, Vermont in an extraordinary situation, as co-host for a female morning show. After co-hosting the show and wearing the News Director hat for five years, Michelle wanted to come home to her roots of New York State.
When she arrived home, Michelle worked for WRNN-TV as their Bureau Chief for the Fairfield / Westchester / Rockland Bureau. Following this task, it was time for Michelle to get back into radio, learning of a position with Straus Media, she became the part time Board Op for 'The Cat' on 96.1 / 98.5.
With many hours and days of commitment, dedication and taking each challenge she was faced with, her full-time air shift on LITE-FM became home as Michelle moved up through Clear Channel Communications running the Promotions Department for four years before throwing her hat (how can you ever find a hat to put over a head with that much hair?) to be the Program Director of LITE 92. in addition to Director of Community Relations. With just a brief hiatus, Michelle is back hosting mid-days on LITE 92.1, and couldn't be happier!
Michelle has ventured into being 'her own boss', during her free time. She owns her own mobile DJ business, Taylor Entertainment and recently with her and her husband's passion for animals, they own The Pet Stop Pet Shop in the Mid Valley Mall in Newburgh.
