“Nicole has been guest-hosting the show since November 2013 and the response from the listening audience was overwhelming. As the only mother on the show, she offered insight into parenting and other challenges the working mom faces. Her perspective and insight on issues and topics was a welcomed addition to the show and we knew we had to keep her in the mix,” said Sheila Eldridge, creator and executive producer of Café Mocha Radio.
