DC PodFest is thrilled to announce that Sarah Fraser will be our opening keynote. Sarah has a unique experience of transitioning from terrestrial radio to a fully empowered, and self-designed, podcasting career.
Sarah Fraser, radio and TV personality, is the host of the enormously popular Hey Frase Podcast on Spotify, iTunes, and many more outlets. The podcast was downloaded over 500k times in it’s first six months alone. Sarah currently co-hosts the show with Paul Wharton. The podcast is funny, inspiring, pop-culture driven, and DC based.
Sarah was also the host of The Sarah, Ty, and Mel Show on DC’s 107.3 in Washington, DC. Notably, Sarah was a lead co-host of the only radio show in the DC-metro area that features two women’s names in the title, and appears weekly on FOX 5’s number one rated Good Day DC where she discusses her Pulse topic. Topics include: “Do Open Marriages Ever Really Work” to “Social Media Prenups.” Her spark and comedic timing also landed her the in-stadium co-host gig for the 2011 Washington Nationals. Sarah’s first talk show pilot – “Hey Frase” – was launched as a panel host show via YouTube in the spring of 2013 and made available to her 47K twitter followers, and combined 25k Facebook followers.
From 2007 to 2013 Sarah spent her mornings co-hosting the D.C. metropolitan area’s top-rated morning drive show among adults, which boasted more than 20 million listeners in the DC metro area and on iheartradio. As the former co-host of the enormously popular “The Kane Show” of HOT 99.5 (WIHT-FM), Sarah’s voice was heard through syndication on WZFT-FM in Baltimore, Maryland, WFLZ-FM in Tampa, Florida, KISS 107 FM in Cincinnati, Ohio, Radio Now 101.9 FM in Memphis, Tennessee and 98.9 Radio Now FM in Louisville, Kentucky. Additionally, Sarah hosted the popular “The Sarah Show” on HOT 99.5, which served as the mid-day lead in program to The Ryan Seacrest Show.
Sarah uses her platform to discuss social issues, particularly concerning women’s empowerment and minority-owned businesses. She dedicates her free time to several nonprofit organizations located in the District, Maryland, and Virginia. Sarah lives in Virginia.
