Produced and distributed by NPR in Washington, D.C., Morning Edition draws on reporting from correspondents based around the world, and producers and reporters in locations in the United States. Sondra provides the latest local headlines along with regular traffic reports for your morning commute. Weekdays from 5AM-9AM on 89.5 WHRV FM.

 

 

Sondra shares her lifelong affection for films and their scores on ReelSound. She promises healthy doses of classic and contemporary, along with westerns and sci-fi. So pop some corn, silence that phone and enjoy the movie...music!

 

Although born in Florida, Sondra has spent most of her life in Hampton Roads, growing up in Chesapeake and attending Norfolk Academy and the College of William and Mary.

Sondra’s first on-air gig was as morning show host for WFOS, 90.3, back in the late 1980s when the frequency was owned by the Chesapeake Public School system. Locally, she has also worked as a traffic reporter with Metro Traffic, reporter and talk-show host at WNIS, news director at WJQI and news and promotions director at WNVZ. She then moved up to Baltimore and worked for Metro Traffic, WMAR-TV and for the then-NPR affiliate WJHU. A few years later, she moved back to Williamsburg to attend W&M, where she got a degree in Linguistics and spent a decade working for Colonial Williamsburg.

Sondra never lost the itch to be on the air, however, and she’s been happily back on Hampton Roads’ airwaves at WHRV since 2004.

Sondra lives in Norfolk with her science-writer partner, a wicked little rabbit and a precocious cockatoo. Her interests include photography, film, animal welfare, growing African violets and cacti, and building Lego masterpieces.
