Erica Lee   Biography

Erica Lee, an only child, was born in Brooklyn New York-her parents moved to the suburbs of New Jersey when she was 4-the family moved to Rocky Mount, North Carolina when Erica was in 3rd grade -- then back to New Jersey (East Brunswick) mid-way through 5th grade. They actually stayed put for 6 years in the same house, but moved to Hollywood, Florida in time for Erica to have to make all new friends her senior year of high school -- she wasn't bitter -- her parents bought her a new Honda Civic. After high school that Honda, packed with Erica's stuff (and that set of towels her mother had been trying to unload), headed north and west to Tallahassee to attend Florida State -- all was swell. Erica was majoring in hotel and restaurant administration, when an unexpected turn of events occurred . . . she decided to pursue a childhood dream of being a deejay (and freak out her parents at the same time). Erica Lee began her radio career in Tallahassee in 1979 at WGLF-FM 104.1 "Gulf 104" (Motto: We'll hire you with no prior experience). Left after 2 years for the "big city" WPFM-FM 107.9 Panama City (not the one in Panama) -- then in 1983 moved to Jacksonville to work at WIVY-FM 102.9 for almost 7 years (2 too many). Then on to Orlando where Erica decided to give "morning drive" a try at WOMX-FM 105.1 "Mix 105.1". The "try" lasted 19 years and 4 months. Erica was let go by CBS Radio on January 7, 2010.

Erica Lee named Woman of the Year

“I’m extremely grateful to everyone who helped me,” Lee told me. She cited her team, donors who showed up at fundraisers at Ember and Jack’s Steak House, and the businesses that gave her prizes for her raffles and the silent auction at the grand finale. The fundraising was personal for Lee. Her mother, Marilyn, died of lymphoma 10 years ago. And radio partner McKenzie was diagnosed with lymphoma two years ago. What’s next for Lee? “I’m going to kick back and relax for a week or so and let it all sink in,” Lee said. “My non-compete is up in less than two weeks, and I’m excited to see what happens next.” Maybe this honor will remind potential employers of Lee’s popularity.
