Posted:  November 28th, 2011 by:  YPN MIami comments:  0

Nicole Gates  has earned ample industry respect as an ethical, hardworking, and effective broadcast media and marketing specialist, with the unique ability to successfully market to the masses.  With almost 20 years in the media business, the industry has seen Gates blossom from an overnight board operator in Columbus, Georgia, to an influential woman making great strides in creating award winning events and concepts that generate revenue for advertisers.

Born February 14, 1974 in Fort Benning, GA to a retired and still dedicated US Army soldier, Gates studied Communications with an emphasis in Marketing at Columbus State University.  Her southern charm and enticing voice led her to various on-air shifts from Mornings in Columbus, GA, various personality duties in Savannah, GA to News and Public Affairs Director in Charlotte and multi-market Middays in Tampa and Jacksonville. During those same years of Gates developing her career in broadcast media, she also dipped her professionally manicured toe into the river of TV hosting, broadcast and print journalism, and motivational speaking positioning herself as a powerful young professional woman.

Today, Gates leads as the Promotions Director of Lincoln Financial Media’s Miami powerhouse, WLYF-101.5 LITE FM.  She is affiliated with The National Association of Black Female Music Executives, The Radio Advertising Bureau, an Advisory Board Member of TechieKids.org, an active member of the Miami-Dade Chamber of Commerce Young Professionals Network,  a member of the National Black Programmers Coalition, and a volunteer at Miami’s Norland Elementary School via the KAPOW (Kids And The Power Of Work) Organization. Gates was also recently nominated as a 2010 Outstanding Volunteer for Miami-Dade County Public Schools.

Nicole truly embodies the force of a consummate media professional.
