Who is Georgette?
On-air host, producer, and writer, Georgette Pierre, is a force to be reckoned with. In 2003, she grabbed the attention of WNSB’s program director at her undergrad, Norfolk State University. Her distinctive voice and charisma sealed the deal, thus beginning her reins as an on-air personality. She continued her rise in radio at WERS 88.9 FM when she attended grad school at Emerson College in Boston.
Since moving to New York in 2010, Georgette interned at NYU’s WNYC Radio in addition to writing for various outlets including Entertainment Weekly, Blavity, MTV News, VH1, and music site, KillerBoombox (KBX). Her 10+ year broadcast history led her to executive produce and host her first internet radio show called Off the Record, co-host and produce a nationally syndicated morning show that was on iHeartRadio, co-host and produce a podcast called Venting and Vino, create two seasons of a relationship-themed web series on YouTube called #DearGeorgette (that was featured in two film festivals, NYC Web Fest and the Hollywood Black Film Festival), while working full time in TV production.
Taking her efforts to Miami, she's now one of the newest on-air personalities for WEDR 99 Jamz, Miami's #1 for Hip Hop & R&B, under the name Georgette Starr. You can catch her Monday-Friday from 6-9 am as the local talent for the Rickey Smiley Morning Show.
