Wow, so I don't even know where to begin! The past few months have been a time of tremendous change, and tremendous blessing!
First of all, I apologize for taking so long to post an update. There's been a lot of change, as I mentioned.
To begin, I am happy to announce that I'm now a resident of Tennessee!!! Further, I'm also a Radio Personality at one of the biggest Country stations in Nashville! Yet, it gets even better! I'm also on the Morning Show at this station!!! I couldn't be happier to share the news that I'm a Radio Personality at 103.3 WKDF in Nashville! In addition to my sole on-air shifts, I am also a part of the amazing "McFly and Stew Morning Show!"
In keeping with my California roots, I'm "LA Renee," on the Morning Show's daily Hollywood gossip segment! It's so fun to talk Hollywood, without actually having to live there! ;) Haha! Moreover, it's amazing to share some air time with 2 seasoned Radio Personalities, whom I admire so much: McFly and Stew.
I'm extremely grateful to be working with such amazing people at WKDF! In fact, so many people I've met since I've moved here have been nothing short of amazing! It really is a great place, with genuine people. I never thought I'd want to leave California. Yet, as the old adage goes, "You want to make God laugh..." After multiple trips out here the past few years, I knew it was where I wanted to be.
In addition to the great news I've mentioned, I have a little more! My "LA Renee" segment is now a part of "The Live Ride with Marty McFly!" "The Live Ride," is a 2 hour, weekly show, that features live performances from the biggest stars! It's a great show, that I hope you'll check out.
I think that's all for now. However, I just want to thank you for stopping by, and for all of your support. I appreciate it more than words can express! Below, please find some photos from my latest adventures, as well as links to find out more. If you want to keep in touch, feel free to find me on Twitter at: @ReneeOnTheRadio

Hello, and HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!! This is by far my favorite time of year, and I hope it brings joy to you, and yours!
The past few months have been filled with excitement. I attended some amazing country concerts, went to the 45th Annual CMA Awards in Nashville, and met some wonderful people. It's been AMAZING, and such a blessing. I feel very grateful! :)
Below, please find some pictures from my most recent adventures:

As always, I want to thank my friends and family for their support. I feel very blessed to have you in my life. Thank you all for stopping by, and have a Merry Christmas, and a Happy Chanukah!!!
Hello, and happy spring! So many exciting things have happened in the past few months! I'm happy to share! :)
For starters, I am still LOVING my career as an On-Air Radio Personality! I am so attached to the station I work for; it is just awesome! Not to mention, the people that I work with are wonderful! They have been so kind and supportive. I'm truly grateful. Getting to know the listeners is such a pleasure too. I feel like I am making new friends everyday! I just can't proclaim enough how thrilled I am to be working for such a successful station!
I'm also happy to announce that a music video spoof I worked on was recently released, and has been making the rounds on the major news channels. I worked on this project with James O'Keefe, (who rose to fame for his undercover journalism), among other great filmmakers. This video was even shown on FNC's "Red Eye!" Below, please find a link to watch the video on "Red Eye."
Additionally, I'm also very excited to divulge that I am going to be serving as a Co-Host on an episode of "Red Eye" this year! I'm thrilled, and know it will be an epic experience. I will disclose more information and dates when available.
In other news, it has been brought to my attention that there appears to be a resurgence of interest in "Fright Club." ;) Due to this, it has recently become available at several new retailers, in addition to the places it was already accessable to rent. A friend of mine sent me a link to show that they were selling it at Walmart.com of all places. I'll provide that link below as well.
Finally, I've included several pictures in this update. Some are from when I was "formally introduced" as an On-Air Radio Personality. I was brought on stage at a station event, and it was a very special night for me. The other photos are pretty self-explanatory. :)
Last, but not least, I just want to thank those I am closest to. I feel so fortunate to have such brave, kind, and honest people in my life. I love you all, and it truly is a blessing!
Thank you, and enjoy life!!!

Dec. 2010/ Jan. 2011
Hello, and Happy Holidays! I'm sorry it has been so long since I last updated my site. So much has happened, and there is a lot for me to share! :)
First, I'm ecstatic to announce that one of my lifelong dreams has come true, as I am now officially an On-Air Personality!!! I have a radio show on a very successful station, in a major market. I work for a very popular Country music station. It couldn't have worked out better, because I LOVE Country music, and this is a station that has been around for nearly 20 years.
I had been wanting to do this for quite some time, and had initially looked into working for a Hip-hop/dance music station. Ultimately, I'm really glad that didn't work out because, although I may be in that age demographic, it's not "me" at all. I'm not really into hip-hop, and do not keep up on the latest music. Plus, I would feel really uncomfortable saying "Yo" all the time! Haha!
The people I work with are awesome! I get the opportunity to attend great events, meet Country music artists, and participate in the station's many philanthropic endeavors.
The most rewarding aspect of this position is certainly the connection I get to make with the listeners. In my first few weeks on the air, I've had listeners call and thank me for playing a certain song that really helped them feel better about something they were going through. I feel so honored to be a part of people's lives in that way, and even more privileged that they would think enough to call and share with me!
So...that's what's new. Other than that, I am fortunate enough to be able to continue my Production work on a less frequent basis. A few months ago, I actually began working as a Supervising Producer! I work for such a fantastic Executive Producer, and he is actually really supportive of my pursuits. Thus, I still get to Produce television, and I'm very busy! Thank you, MAP!!! :)
In the midst of the excitement, I also received some great news about a television pilot I shot for Showtime. I just did it for fun, and it certainly fulfilled that requirement! :) The cast and crew were great, and it was a blast! I cannot disclose the news just yet. However, I will provide a link to the project below. (Warning: There is profanity in the pilot.)
Additionally, I've been working with some amazing filmmakers, affiliated with major networks. Below, please find pictures from a recent video shoot we worked on that was a great time! The footage has not yet been released. Yet, it will be widespread in the coming weeks, and I will keep you posted.
I was also recently afforded the opportunity to serve as a political analyst for a news organization, which was a tremendous experience.
I truly hope everyone is enjoying this Holiday season, and had a fun Halloween as well!
In addition to the aforementioned pictures, there are a few additional photos below. Some are from Halloween. I was Princess Peach, from Super Mario Bros., for the occasion. Anyone who knows me, knows I have a love for gaming, so this was an homage to that. It was very fun! The remaining pictures are of me in the studio during my first day of work, and a couple of shots of me out and about recently.
Finally, I just want to thank my friends and loved ones for their support! I feel so blessed to have such amazing people in my life! I'm surrounded by those who are truly intelligent, genuine, and wise enough to know what matters and what doesn't. This Holiday season, it is even more apparent to me, how fortunate I am to have loved ones that lack calculation in their kindness, and give more than they take. I only hope I can be as good to them in return! :)
See you in 2011!
Love and peace to all!!

UPDATE: (A friend sent me this link, as I didn't know it was online.)
(I did an interview for The Turlock Journal this past year, and it can be seen at the link above.)
At the station:
My first on-air "interview":
Happy New Year!!!!! Sorry I have taken so long to update...so much has happened. Let's see....FIRST...I want to congratulate my Saints on winning the Super Bowl...Yay Saints! I knew they were going to win...I predicted it at the Preseason game so people should really start believing me when I say I'm a little psychic...LOL! Anyways, below see some pics of myself, my mom, and some of the Coaches on the field, as well as some other team pics.
I recently worked on a print job during a break from my Casting Production work. I modeled for a few different brands. It was great! I was in this beautiful home with an amazing view. I will post a couple photos from that shoot as well. They have not even been retouched yet, so I must be feeling particularly gutsy! Haha!
Also, I am now Producing a new show that airs on MTV and CMT. It's an awesome show that helps teenagers. I will include links to some of my TV and radio spots for that show as well. I've been working in the Bay Area for that...Yay!
Lastly, I just want to give a "shout out" to my friends and family. You are all so supportive, and I appreciate you always being there!
(Please keep in mind these interviews are pretty chopped up as they were recorded while I was on the air)...
