HOST OF WAKE UP! WITH TAYLOR ON SIRIUSXM
Many have used the word "unique" to describe Taylor; and that she most certainly is. She'll talk to you endlessly about her bowel movements while wearing red-soled shoes and refusing to drink anything other than Sancerre. Hey, the girl loves the finer things in life, but she would trade it all in for a deep belly laugh. She is a goofy glam gal.
Taylor Strecker was discovered in a New York City bar only a few months after graduating from Ithaca College's Park School of Communications. When the Programming Director of Sirius Satellite Radio's brand new channel for Cosmopolitan magazine, Cosmo Radio, overheard this raspy voiced Boston native, she knew she had found her radio show personality.
Since launching the groundbreaking "for women by women" radio station in March 2006 (now called SiriusXM Stars,) Taylor, the host of Cosmo's Wake Up! With Taylor, has been coined a "lil' shot of espresso." Weekdays from 6am-9am EST, Taylor throws a daily brunch with her "friends" (listeners, celebrities, and co-host Kenny) full of smarts, sass, and of course silliness.
Taylor, a reality TV addict, proudly refers to Wake Up! With Taylor as "reality radio." She shares every detail of her life, partly because she's an admitted narcissist, but more so in an effort to cut through the bullsh*t that makes so many women feel less than. Yes, she loves to entertain, and yes, she loves to make people laugh, but the most important thing to her is "uplifting women one self-deprecating story at a time."
WAKE UP! WITH TAYLOR, LIVE!
From undateable men to sticky office politics, from Facebook etiquette to fashion and diet tips, Taylor and Kenny share their unique, hilarious take on what it means to be an independent woman in 2015. This is a live, on-stage format of Taylor and Kenny's radio show on SiriusXM.
In this hysterical and inspiring conversation, Taylor shares the absurd life stories that have led her to become the woman she is today. Humorous and direct, Taylor cuts through the bullsh*t and shows why there’s no reason for women to feel less than.
MIXED SIGNALS: PURSUING A REAL SEXUALITY FOR THE HOOK UP GENERATION
Borrowing from her own experiences, Strecker dives into the tricky waters of sex and safety. Every day, our culture overwhelms women and girls with confusing messages: We're supposed to be pure, innocent virgins who on the low excel at exotic dancing; we're supposed to practice safe sex, but we're promiscuous if we carry a condom in our purses; we need to be careful of rapists hiding in bushes, but deserve "whatever we get" if we show cleavage. In this interactive talk, Taylor detaches the stigma associated with female sexuality, providing audiences with the tools for expressing that sexuality freely and safely.
