As the SiriusXM host of Wake Up with Taylor, Taylor Strecker helps people across the nation wake up every morning from 7 – 10 am ET on SiriusXM’s Stars 109 with her wildly authentic take on pop culture. Taylor was discovered in a New York City bar only a few months after graduating from Ithaca College’s Park School of Communications. When the Programming Director of SiriusXM’s Cosmo Radio heard the raspy-voiced Boston native, she knew she found her radio show personality. Taylor was tapped the voice to launch Cosmo Radio, the groundbreaking “for women by women” radio station in March 2006. Taylor and her cohort’s witty banter keeps listeners up to date on the latest news in pop culture and entertains with hilarious stories and light-hearted interviews with today’s top celebs- including the Kardashians, Channing Tatum, Zack Braff, Kate Bosworth and others. Living up to her nickname “lil’ shot of espresso,” Taylor does it all from her radio show, to creating a lifestyle blog to viral YouTube videos with segments like High Five You’re A Celebrity!, Stupid Olympics and Tay Tay’s Fashion Finds. Taylor’s wit, humor and charm have also caught the attention of the internet where she has tens of thousands of followers on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and YouTube.
