Weekends with Roula

Saturday Mornings 8-11 on Z96

A little bit about me? Well, I was born and raised in Houston, Texas. My family is Greek and it is BIG! I am the fourth of five kids to my immigrant parents who moved to Houston from Tripoli, Greece in the 50’s. I am a fluent Greek girl who can fast talk my way through a lot!

My family owns the longest running restaurant in Houston, (Christie’s Seafood & Steaks— 103 years strong) As I was working my way through school, waiting tables and generally managing Christie’s with my family, fate dropped an opportunity to discover radio right in my lap! I delivered food to a radio station and was invited into the studio to watch the night DJ work his shift. His name was Paul “Cubby” Bryant and he single-handedly turned the fire for radio on in my heart! After that night, I knew that radio was the career path I wanted to take.

I have lived out most all my adult life on the radio. I met my husband Tasos on a blind date in 2008. We married in 2009. I had three babies basically on the air. We have lived our highs (getting married and babies) and lows (losing my Dad and surviving natural disasters) on the broadcast airwaves.

I really do love what I do. I absolutely relate to the struggle of life through your eyes. To know that I help people get through their day with smiles on their faces is such a humbling and rewarding feeling. I am all about Family and helping people feel like a part of one. It seems like every day in radio I meet someone new who moves me, surprises me and challenges me. I can’t wait to see what’s next!

Thank you for listening to Weekends with Roula!
