“Bonnie Petrie’s passion for good radio and good journalism is always an inspiration to me. She is an astute observer and talented storyteller and a joy to have in a newsroom.”

-Tara Howard, ABC News

“Bonnie is simply put the best in the business. Rarely have I had a news anchor on my shows who really gets it. She does — and frankly, out-shined me often.” 

-Joe “Pags” Pagliarulo, Talk Show Host, Clear Channel

“Bonnie is one of those rare radio anchors where you can hear the smile in her voice and it makes you smile along. Her intelligence and sense of humor shine through in everything she does. She is frankly a joy to work with. Always willing to pitch in regardless of the task, Bonnie is one of the true team players in media. A rare talent indeed!” 

-Tracee Evans, Communications Director for Texas Congressman Kevin Brady, former reporter, KTRH NewsRadio 740

“Bonnie is a fantastic producer who is very knowledgable in the pregnancy and parenting space. It’s been a pleasure working with her and having her expertise on our shows.”

-Leila Pirnia, Pea in the Podcast
