When does she sleep is the first question that crossed our minds when we discovered business and entertainment dynamo Nikki Woods. With one quick glance at her social media pages, it’s easy to see why this Dallas mom, best-selling author, social media and personal branding coach, motivational speaker and the senior producer of the Tom Joyner Morning Show has built a legion of loyal fans around the world.
A Missouri native, Nikki studied education at Howard University in Washington D.C. and journalism at the University of St. Francis in Joliet, Illinois. Her journey in broadcasting landed her in various markets, including St. Louis, Boston and Chicago. She eventually became senior producer of the acclaimed, nationally-syndicated “Tom Joyner Morning Show.” The Tom Joyner Morning Show is the most successful syndicated urban radio show in history reaching more than 8 million people on a daily basis.
Woods is also a “TJMS” contributor, dishing out her own brand of info-tainment on weekend events and activities in the segment that she creates and produces herself, “What in the Weekend with Nikki Woods.” She can also be seen and heard on a variety of programs, including“The TJMS Community Watch” on WSRB Soul 106.3, their Chicago affiliate and on “Beyond the Studio” celebrity interviews on BlackAmericaWeb.com.
Her “Mamas Gone Wild” website and weekly blog entries on BlackAmericaWeb.com highlight – with insight and hilarity – the ups and downs of being a hard-working radio producer by morning, an ever-patient classroom mom by afternoon and adventurous mother of two by night. As a highly sought after keynote speaker who’s earned the title of Global Visibility Expert, Nikki continues to reach millions,. That number grows daily as she uses digital media to empower and train audiences with messages and methods for excelling in business, marketing and personal growth.
Nikki currently serves as an OWN ambassador, as well as an ambassador for Pretty Brown Girl, a foundation in Detroit that empowers and inspires girls and women to celebrate their shades of brown with a simple yet powerful message.
