Mary Steele is a native of New Orleans and a graduate of Mt. Carmel Academy. The only time she didn't live in NOLA was while attending college in Colorado. She has a bachelor's in Communications and Music from The University of Denver. Her first local on-air job was at the classical station, WWNO. Very soon after getting that job, Mary was hired by WNOE. Over the past two plus decades she's worked for numerous different local stations and formats, but the majority of the time she's been with WNOE on and off, mostly on. Some of the other formats Mary has worked in are: Smooth Jazz, Classic Rock, Oldies, Alternative Rock, Classical and COUNTRY! Mary also volunteers sometimes at the non-profit station for the blind and print handicapped, WRBH. She even got Eddie Edwards to start reading for them. Eddie is Mary's favorite co-worker she's ever had the pleasure of "working" with (if you can even call it working)!
Ms. Steele is from a big family. She's one of seven kids who grew up in the Lake Vista area of New Orleans. Her oldest brother is a professional actor. Another brother works for Google/You Tube. And a third brother is head of children's programming at PBS. Not to be left out, her youngest brother has bought her a "Who Dat in Your Pocket"! Her youngest sister has a law degree and does a LOT of volunteer work around NOLA. She has one other sister who lives in North Carolina and works as a campaign coordinator for The United Way. Mary's Dad, who looks like Santa, can be seen second lining at just about every local music festival in town. Her Mom & Dad have been happily married for almost 46 years! Mary is married and has one daughter who loves WNOE."Sammycat" is now a young lady starting college this year!
In her spare time, Mary likes to substitute teach and appear as an "extra" in movies. Her hobbies are biking, yoga, movies and music. Mary is SUPER EXCITED to be back on the air at WNOE!
