DeOliveira Adds to the MAGIC with Glenn Kalina
Fairly new mom Dianne DeOliveira, Brick, came full circle when she returned to co-host the Greater Media Magic Morning radio show with Glenn Kalina on Magic 100.1. In 2003, she was a co-host at another Greater Media radio station. Eight years later, DeOliveira is back as a co-host on the new Magic 100.1 Morning Show, a family friendly radio program, featuring Mommy and Me content for the general public weekday mornings 5:00 to 10:00 a.m.
Before returning to Magic 100.1, DeOliveira, an experienced air personality, was a morning show co-host at The Breeze, Neptune, where she was responsible for producing and gathering information for the show.
At Magic 100.1, a Greater Media radio station, DeOliveira prepares and broadcasts hourly newscasts, public service announcements, celebrity news, and personal appearances. She also participates in on air contests and topical conversations with Kalina.
DeOliveira, no stranger to the Jersey Shore, went through the Toms River school system and worked as a beach badge checker and an Italian Ice truck driver, among other local jobs. She earned her B.S. in broadcast journalism from Middle Tennessee State University, Murfreesboro, Tennessee. She is a former big sister of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ocean County, and a member of the Jersey Shore Running Club and the Shore Athletic Club.
Among her honors and awards, DeOliveira received 2002 AP (Associated Press) Best Use of Sound, Summer Vacation Spots in N.J.; 2001 AP Best News Team Coverage of 9-11; 2000 NJBA (New Jersey Broadcaster’s Association) Best News Team, Tropical Storm Floyd coverage; 1999 AP Best Newscast, Noon hour; 1998 March of Dimes A.I.R. Awards Finalist for Best News Series, The Casino; 1997 AP Best Public Service, Pool Safety; 1995 AP Best Election Coverage, November 1995.
DeOliveira says, “There’s nothing better than working at the Jersey Shore and being able to relate to and share experiences about the places and people where I grew up. My husband and I have lived in Ocean County for more than 35 years, and now we are raising our two-year-old son here too! I love talking to listeners and getting out of the studio to meet them in person!”
