Queen of the Month: Rising Radio Queen Nena Monroe (@Nena_Monroe)

Now this interview is long overdue. I know you well and for some time now. But I think the rest of the world deserves to know who Nena Monroe is and what she’s ALL about.

First off, please tell the readers how you got the name Nena Monroe.

My grandmother always called me NENA. Lol. She barely ever called me by my name so I embraced Nena as my nickname. It was different being that NENA in Spanish means girl. Monroe came years after. My mother would always say to me, “You spoiled, you must think you Marilyn Monroe.” I’m like who is this lady and after reading her quotes I realized we had so much in common. So I put them together and now I’m NENA Monroe. Lol.

 I’ve seen and sat through many interviews and radio is not for everyone. But you are a natural; you do it effortlessly. How and when did you decide to pursue a career in radio?

I always knew I wanted to work in the industry whether it was music or acting, radio came to me as a surprise. I was invited to ProSoul by Dj S1 as a guest and they loved my personality. Days after they hit me up and asked if I’d like my own show. I was excited and went for it. Now I love it!

What are some of the challenges you’ve faced? Do you think they are because you’re a woman in this business?

I think the challenge I’ve encountered which is most annoying is when people assume that I’m flirting when I’m just actually being friendly. They automatically want to leave business on the backburner and try to pursue me. As a woman I enjoy looking good but never want to be looked at as a sex symbol. I feel because I’m a female in this industry and especially since it’s an after dark show men automatically feel I’m selling myself as a sex symbol and that is by far what I’m doing.

How do you balance being a single mom of two and your career?

It’s hard and at times overwhelming but my girls are old enough to know that they have to meet me halfway. They know I’m just grinding so I can be able to give them a better future.

How do your daughters feel about their mom being in the entertainment industry?

They love what their mom does, I actually try to encourage them to follow their dreams whether in this industry or out of it.

What advice would you give other women trying to launch a career in the industry, whether in radio, as an artist, or any field?

To go for it. Stay positive. As women many obstacles come our way, but my motto is, ” Only the strong survive.” So go hard for your  dreams!!!!!

Sooooo, with the return of Nena After Dark, what can we expect from Miss Nena Monroe in 2015?

Mz. Monroe is bringing you a new attitude, a brand new bag of tricks, new and exciting interviews, a better knowledge and understanding of the business, and more relationship advice and thoughts.

How long have you been DJing for? I started DJing professionally in 2010.

How did you get started? I started as an assistant program director at an online radio station. I was basically an assistant to several different DJs (all men) here in Denver. I handled all of their social media, downloaded and organized music for them, burned CDs and whatever else they needed. I thought if I could do this for all of them, I could do it for myself!

You’ve accomplished so much this year. You won 2014 SEA Female DJ of the Year and 2014 Lady Fleet DJ. Huge accomplishments!!! How does it feel? Winning Female DJ of the Year in two national competitions this year feels AMAZING!! On the flip side, its a lot of pressure to win again and also pushes me to work even harder, practice more, and remain humble. Read more
