As one of metal radio’s most prominent figures, Jackie can be found on the front lines at every major metal event. Jackie was once again on the frontlines for this year’s Revolver Golden Gods Awards ceremony as a correspondent on the black (metal) carpet. Check out video of Jackie interviewing members of Anthrax, Slipknot, Megadeth, Devildriver and Fear Factory among many others from last year’s Awards show at http://youtu.be/yg1L2sdK3co.
Jackie went out on the road last summer with the 2011 Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival as the Official Tour Correspondent, interviewing the bands and creating video content for RockstarMayhemFest.com. Check some of the footage she captured while on tour here: http://youtu.be/gEy-x3hzFfE, http://youtu.be/Sb6TrZ07Zv0, http://youtu.be/TN7mcU5Mo4U, and http://youtu.be/1zqilXN1ja0.
Full Metal Jackie began her radio career as an on-air personality at WHTG (Neptune, NJ), and later at WDHA (Dover, NJ). After a short stint as on-air host at San Diego’s 94.9 KBZT, Jackie landed the opportunity she had been working toward since her early WSOU days: host and producer of her own (and L.A.’s only) commercial heavy metal radio show, CHAOS on Indie 103.1. Today, Full Metal Jackie’s show can be heard on some of the best rock radio stations throughout the United States.
