Astra, a native New Yorker, was born and lived in Manhattan, and on Long Island. Since the age of 2, Astra has always been in the limelight. She started as a print work model with her priceless smile, which eventually led into television work with roles on MTV, and HBO - to name a few.
She graduated from Molloy College with a B.A. in Communications, and a minor in Spanish and landed her first job at News 12 Long Island. The entertainment world started grabbing at her and with a growing love for music, and celebrity gossip, she later landed her first on air gig at WXXP - Party 105.3 where she did middays for a few years. As the celebrity interviews started to roll in by the dozens, her love for various types of music began to grow, and she later picked up afternoons at their sister station, WLIR.
Her next step was New York City. She became the Morning Show Producer for WNEW- The New Mix 102.7 where she worked with Michelle Visage and Joe Causi. While working full time in Manhattan, she connected with a well known voice over company and began doing voice work and parodies for radio stations in the tri-state area. Since then she has been doing mulitple voice over work for radio and television commercials nationwide! She rocked the BLI night show from 2005-2010 and after 5 years moved up to tackle the midday slot. Now her dream has come true - she is in the big city - NYC rockin' the afternoon show on 92.3 AMP Radio!
