I left behind a fourteen-year career as a broadcaster on FM radio in Manila, Philippines. From 1998-2003, I hosted and produced “Zach and Joey in the Morning” over NU107, an alternative rock station heard over 107.5FM.
My radio career began in newscasting in 1989 when I auditioned on a whim when I was eighteen and landed a part-time gig on 99.5RT. This was the start of an eclectic career where listeners heard my voice over not just the Contemporary Hit Radio (CHR) format but also Jazz, Alternative Rock, and Talk, where I debuted as co-host of “The Morning Show with Jake and Joey” in 1995 on NU107.
I went back to my Alma Mater, 99.5RT, in 1997 as the only female announcer; I went back to the “Station that Rocked the Nation” a year later.
Zach and Joey in the Morning debuted on July 13, 1998. It was a “totally cosmic experience” until March 14, 2003 when I left radio and joined the corporate world of communications training management for an outsourcing company with big clients like Dell, AT&T, and HSBC.
Some days I really miss working in radio. But those days are few and far between.
What Others Say
“Nothing cut through Manila morning show clutter than Joey’s crazysexycool wit and her deranged laughter. In a timeslot full of men, Joey worked it like she had the biggest pair. “Zach & Joey in the Morning”…. Less talk, more yelling.”
Andrew de Castro
Director for Programming & Show Acquisition
“I listened to Zach and Joey a lot back then! And that’s saying a lot by a guy who doesn’t normally do mornings! The show was funny and unpretentious. Thelma as a jock: clear and sexy!”
Lead Singer, The Dawn
“Zach & Joey in the Morning kept me entertained during my morning drives. No other radio show made me deviate from my CD collection the way Z&J did…”
“There’s absolutely no point in getting up in the morning anymore ever since Zach and Joey went off the air!!!”
