Annette Petriccione

Born and raised in New Jersey, I'm definitely a Jersey Girl. I even have the big hair to prove it! Through my years at NJ 101.5, I've held various roles in the newsroom, but my current role as the assistant news director is the one that's been the most rewarding. Not only do I get to work closely with the station's talk show hosts, anchors and reporters, but I also get to suggest stories that I think will be impactful to our listening and reading audience!
