Sandra McNeill

sandramcneill Sandra McNeillA native Detroiter and University of Michigan graduate, I got a break early in my career in Detroit radio as the “Sky Spy” at a Detroit News Talk Station. I  went on to spend several years as a reporter and writer, then bureau chief for the Detroit office of a national news wire service.

You can currently find me at the assignment desk each day producing WWJ’s midday news coverage anchored by Greg Bowman.  I’m responsible for directing what gets covered on any given day and setting up live  interviews for in-depth coverage.You may sometimes hear me on the air and from time to time, reporting during morning drive.
