After taking a break from her 10-year radio career and starting two creative services agencies, Nada made her return to radio with Apple Music in 2020. First hosting Soundcheck Radio — A moment-based and dynamic daily show reflecting and promoting Apple Music Country. She was then tapped to host The Country Chart Show in February 2021. The self-proclaimed “Hot Mess,” Nada brings her uncompromising opinions, inside-the-industry stories straight from Nashville and tastemaker music choices to the show that features the top 20 songs on Apple Music Country. Every day, Nada connects the dots between music and pop culture for listeners in a way that’s relevant, dynamic, and raw.
Nada decided to take a bet on herself in 2017 when she quit her job at iHeartRadio where she spent time as a music and digital director, and five years as an on-air personality on the nationally syndicated Country morning radio show, the “Bobby Bones Show” to start her own company. In 2019, she launched a second company — creative and artist services firm GoodCopBadCop, a co-venture with Nesta Music founder Robby Towns, that is based in Nashville and London.
Nada graduated college at 18 with dual degrees (Bachelor of Science in Journalism and International Relations) and moved to Nashville a few years later to take on the role of Digital Director for five iHeartMedia radio stations. As the Music Director of the Top 40 station, she played a role in breaking the songs and careers of artists like Ed Sheeran, The Lumineers, Foster the People and Adele. She started her career at 15 writing for the Orlando Sentinel and continued as an award-winning investigative reporter at her university’s newspaper. With a background in sports, she’s also been an on-camera correspondent for national and international Premier League matches as well as a sports writer for the NBA. She spent years building the digital landscape of the NBC affiliate in Orlando (WESH-2) before joining radio.
Spending five years as the Digital and Branding Director of the “Bobby Bones Show,” she began and grew the Instagram account and brand. She used her professional relationships and skills to produce special concert shows and curate interviews with artists from other genres to expand the show’s story. Along with handling all digital aspects of the show, Nada was an on-air personality openly talking about her charmingly chaotic life. The Nashville Business Journal’s 40 Under 40 honoree left comfort and stability to inject creativity in the ecosystem. With her company, she worked with artists at all levels to help create and execute their brand and extensively expand their reach and grow their revenue.
The self-proclaimed (but also obvious) cat lady, is outspoken about everything — marriage and divorce, being a female entrepreneur, mental health, and more. Alongside her company, she hosts events, panels and on-camera content for brands. She splits her time in Nashville and in her favorite city — London.
