Karina Maria is a first generation Dominican-American, born and raised in a single-parent household in New York City. Her radio and music careers have taken exciting twists and turns with only one common thread: the union of Latino, hip-hop and pop music.
Karina got her start interning and voicing commercials at New York’s Power 105.1, while programming the Latino channels on Music Choice, always keeping her culture at the forefront. She then went on to do marketing at Republic Records/Cash Money before spending five years at Universal Latino in charge of marketing some of today’s biggest artists: J Balvin, Karol G, Alejandro Fernandez and more. She received a master of arts in journalism from the University of Southern California.
Her deep love for music and passion for radio brought her back to New York’s Hot 97. She then hosted mornings in central Wisconsin at 95.5 WIFC, which solidified her bubbly and loveable personality sprinkled with Dominican spice and pizazz! Getting to know people on a deeper level is her favorite hobby and her love for the Lord is what keeps her going. Karina is mom to two-year-old Quinn and hopes to inspire young girls in inner city communities like the one she was raised in.
