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.
