Sandra McNeill

sandramcneill Sandra McNeillAfter graduating from the University of Michigan, Sandra McNeill started her career as a newspaper reporter in a small town in England called Wokingham.  Her daily walk to the police station to find out what was happening that day invariably came up with the reply, “We don’t have crime like you do in America!”

She went on to a stint at Metro Traffic as a traffic reporter on several major Detroit area radio stations, doing reports for several years from a small airplane.  Sandra then went back into news for the Metro Networks wire service, where she worked her way up to News Bureau Chief.

Sandra now writes and reports at WWJ Newsradio 950, where her favorite stories are simply talking to people.
