For anyone who doesn't know, Sunni is a radio host at D.C’s leading Hip Hop and R&B station, WPGC 95.5. Her show, Sunny and the City, can be heard live Monday though Saturday 10:00 am until 2:00 pm. She previously graced the airwaves on Power 96 in Miami and 95.5 in Detroit.
Natives of Bosnia, Sunni and her
family lived in three refugee camps in Croatia before being transported
to the United States in 1997. She began her career in radio at the age of 18 and became the
youngest radio personality in the Detroit market. She’s also the first
woman from Bosnia to host a radio show in the U.S.
Interviewing celebrities and hosting parties is just another day in the life of a radio host, but Sunni is also known for her charity work, including the Special Olympics,
Covenant House, Komen Race For The Cure, the
National Kidney Foundation, and UNICEF.
On September 16, the Committee to Restore Shepherd Parkway joined the list as Sunny and an entourage of staff from WPGC and Ciroc Vodka got down and dirty amid the piles of trash buried in the woods behind Brother Place.
The event came about thanks to Committee member Albert Arevalo of the Alice Ferguson Foundation.
