“I am beyond thrilled to become a member of the Greater Media family, and am extremely grateful to Rob Williams for giving me the opportunity to continue my journey in radio doing what I love,” said Pebbles. “I am deeply thankful for the support of the listeners who have followed my career over the years and I hope that they will continue to support me in my new venture.”
“Pebbles has been a consistent top performer in
Boston radio for years,”
said Greater Media Market Manager Rob Williams. “I had the pleasure to work
with her at JAM’N and I was pleasantly surprised that she was available to join
our team as we launch our new station on 96.9 FM. Her on-air talents, her
commitment to working in the Boston
community, and her incredible personality make a rare combination.”
She started her radio career in 1988 in
Boston at WILD (AM) 1090, a station with a
predominantly African-American audience, first as a midday on-air personality,
before becoming part of the station's morning show.
In 1995, Pebbles left WILD for WJMN JAM'N 94.5, a
Boston hip-hop FM radio
station, to co-host the "Baltazar & Pebbles Morning Show." While
Baltazar left the morning show in 2001, Pebbles remained at WJMN and was paired
with Ramiro Torres to form the "Ramiro & Pebbles Morning Show."
She interviews celebrities and reports on traffic, news, and entertainment gossip, with segments including Entertainment Update, Fast Facts, and The Ladies Room. She is known for her "big-sister" aura at a station where 18 to 34-year-old women are the largest audience. Her Ladies Room segment includes advice for women on relationships, styles, and careers.
In January 2011, WJMN (FM) was ranked fourth in the
Boston area, with
1,063,800 listeners, according to Arbitron.
Pebbles also runs her own communications company providing vocals for commercials, web presentations, audio books and phone systems.
December 6, 2012 marked Pebbles last day at Jamn945 after being released from her contract from Clear Channel.
