The friendly voice heard during the mid-day on WHRO-FM belongs to Shari Barbour. Her radio experience and love of music make her a perfect part of the 90.3 team.
Shari came to us from public station WNED-FM in Buffalo, New York, where she was host and producer of the Morning Classics program. Shari is no stranger to the Old Dominion, having received music degrees from James Madison University and served on the Music Faculties of Hollins, Roanoke, and Lynchburg Colleges as well as Radford University. Shari has worked for WVTF in Roanoke where she also studied Radio and Television Technology. She has studied and taught flute and guitar, and has performed on those instruments in concert.
Shari’s musical tastes cover a broad spectrum and listeners can expect the unexpected each weekday, especially during the “A Little Something for Everyone” segment at noon. Tune in for great music and a sense of fun each mid-day.
She traces her love of classical music to a New York Philharmonic concert, conducted by Leonard Bernstein, heard on a class trip when she was nine years old. Shari resides in Norfolk.
