with Kimberly The Night Nurse
Coastal Carolina's Modern Rock 98.7 now has Reggae Redemption with Kimberly your “Night Nurse,” Sundays 10am-Noon For the past 18 years Kimberly has produced her own radio program focusing on reggae and world music. On the radio she is known as “The Night Nurse”. She began her broadcasting career with Wilmington NPR affiliate in 1993. She was assigned what is best known as “the graveyard shift” 12am-4am. At that time, she called the show “Reggae Nites”. From there Kimberly was tapped for a first time ever Sunday morning reggae radio slot with Ocean Broadcasting’s Rock station in 1996. For a while she was on both stations, in that there was no competition between the commercial and the public radio markets. The Night Nurse was on 104.5 until 2005, when Sea-Comm Media tapped her for a chance to serve as promotions Director and later Program Director, a slot on the classic rock station, and a new home on their sister station for her beloved Reggae Redemption Show. Reggae Redemption currently airs Sundays 10am-12pm on Modern Rock 98.7 in Wilmington NC. This move is tremendous for both the music and the “Night Nurse” as its messenger. This station is 100,000 watts , reaches nine surrounding counties, and streams online all over the world. Needless to say Kimberly has come a long way from the “graveyard shift”
