Jamie Morris '07
The very thing Jamie Morris finds to be her edge can be heard every morning on Z100, the top-rated radio station in New York City: her voice! As a full-time traffic reporter for Elvis Duran and the Morning Show, Jamie is able to utilize the skills she learned at Hofstra as an integral member of the WRHU Radio Hofstra University staff.
During her four years at Hofstra, Jamie was heavily involved with many aspects of the School of Communication. She held multiple titles at WRHU, including station manager and news director, and was part of many different Hofstra TV broadcasts. Jamie earned numerous awards from WRHU for her outstanding work, including "Program of the Year" for her job as lead producer of live election night coverage in 2005, and the Ed Ingles Broadcaster of the Year award in 2007. She was president of the Association for Women in Communications, which sponsors a performance of The Vagina Monologues every year to raise money for victims of domestic violence. Jaime was also inducted into Lambda Pi Eta (the national communications honor society).
After receiving a B.A. in broadcast journalism in 2007, Jamie immediately started working as a freelance traffic reporter for Cablevision's News 12 Traffic & Weather, which serves customers in New York City, New Jersey, Long Island, Hudson Valley, and Connecticut. She also worked as a freelance producer for Clear Channel's Total Traffic Network, providing information for Clear Channel Radio and TV reporters as well as sending data to portable GPS navigation devices.
In December 2007, Jamie got the opportunity to fill in and report traffic on Clear Channel NY radio stations Z100, 103.5 KTU, Q104.3, and WALK 97.5. In January 2008, she was offered a full-time position. Currently, she can be heard every morning from 5-10 a.m. as "Julie Moore" with Total Traffic reports, and also reports on the other stations when needed. Nearly 4.3 million people hear her voice every day. Jamie also fills in for the 103.5 KTU Morning Show, delivering news, traffic, weather and entertainment reports.
Jamie is starting to dabble in voice-over work, and currently resides in Manhattan.
