 Ghia from Big 105.9 

Born and raised in New York, Ghia was pursuing a Media Studies degree at The New School when she landed an internship with Z100’s Elvis Duran and the Morning Show. This internship eventually led to her first official job in radio as a phone screener for Elvis Duran and Z100. Within the year she took the next step in her career when she packed up and took off to Alaska to be the Morning Show Co-Host at KFAT in Anchorage. It wasn’t long until Ghia returned to the East Coast, landing at Cox Media Group in Long Island, working on-air at WBLI and sister station WBAB. Soon Ghia had the opportunity to take her talents back to New York City, first at the legendary WPLJ and then at Fresh 102.7. Currently, Ghia is co-hosting morning drive alongside Miami radio legend, Paul Castronovo on BIG 105.9.  Her infectious and honest personality has added a spark to the morning show, which is currently #1 rated with Men 25-54, and #3 with Adults 25-54. In her spare time, Ghia is working on launching her very own lifestyle blog, feeding her TMZ addiction, eating deep fried anything and late night binge shopping!
