Noël Blackhall comes to Media One Group as a third-generation "radio junkie". As a child, she would sit with her grandfather and listen to different stations on his collection of radios. Her father, "DJ Dave", is an entertainment disk-jockey in his free time in their hometown of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
Noël has a fine-tuned background in sports, but her heart lies with hockey. During her undergrad studies at Mercyhurst University, Noël co-hosted her own sports show and worked as an on-air reporter and announcer for the Mercyhurst Men's Hockey team. As icing on the cake, she also completed an internship with the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2016. She was part of the multimedia production crew and assisted in the 50th anniversary documentary "Pittsburgh is Home".
When she's not on-air at the station, Noël enjoys taking ballet classes and working with animals.
Noël is thrilled to be part of the Media One Group team. She hopes her hard work can live up to the past and present legends that have broadcast at the Orchard Road stations.
