NIKKI WOODS’ expansive media career ranges from serving as a radio and television personality to show producer, media consultant and author.
Woods was born in Rock Hill, Missouri and upon graduation, studied education at Howard University in Washington D.C. and journalism at the University of St. Francis in Joliet, Illinois. Her journey in broadcasting landed her in various markets, including St. Louis, Boston and Chicago, before Woods became senior producer of the acclaimed, nationally-syndicated “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” where she is responsible for the engaging on-air content heard each morning on the over-100 affiliate radio stations that air the award-winning program. Woods is also a “TJMS” contributor, dishing out her own brand of info-tainment on weekend events and activities in the segment, “What in the Weekend?”
Woods can also be seen and heard on a variety of programs, including “The TJMS Community Watch” on WSRB Soul 106.3, their Chicago affiliate; “Beyond the Studio” celebrity interviews on BlackAmericaWeb.com; her “Women On the Go” podcast found on iTunes, and “Full Circle with Nikki Woods” on Blog Talk Radio, to name a few. Her distinguishable voiceover work can also be heard on various commercials, independent documentaries and audio books.
Her “Mamas Gone Wild” website and weekly blog entries on BlackAmericaWeb.com highlight – with insight and hilarity – the ups and downs of being a hard-working radio producer by morning, an ever-patient classroom mom by afternoon and adventurous mother of two by night.
The author of “Easier Said than Done,” Woods is currently penning her second and third novels. She is also co-founder of the creative firm R2U, where she utilizes her highly specialized skills in social marketing to serve her clients.
Woods and her family live in Dallas.
