Neha Shaida, of Indian descent, was born and raised in the outer Los Angeles suburb of Hacienda Heights. Shaida’s skills and abilities to multi-task, lead, report, write, and communicate effectively has been a result of her vast work and volunteer experience. Acclimating to long hours of interning, working, and receiving a higher education, led her to adapt a strong work ethic and ambition to pursue a career in radio.

With her impenetrable love for music, Neha graduated with a Bachelors degree in Journalism at the University of California, Irvine and a Masters in Media at California State Fullerton. During her studies in college, she interned at news stations, newspapers, TV stations, and high fashion designers. During her venture interning with a variety of media entities, Shaida realized she had a passion for music and journalism and that radio combined her love for both.

Living in Los Angeles, Neha had the opportunity to work at L.A.’s #1-night show, “the Liftoff” at Power 106. While working at Power, she learned from talents like Justin Credible and DJ Sourmilk. Everything from producing a show to talking on-air and developing a thriving social media presence, she learned from the greats in L.A. After 2 years, Shaida moved on to work at BET and TuneIn, where she was able to finetune her skills in the music industry.

On behalf of Kemp Broadcasting, we are excited to welcome Neha Shaida to the Q 106.9 family! We are more than thrilled to be a part of Neha’s new chapter and help broaden her experience and knowledge in the radio industry. Kemp Broadcasting is proud to announce that Neha will be the new midday jock on Q 106.9 KVGQ Monday to Friday from 10AM – 3PM.
