Roula Christie: “The Roula and Ryan Show”
Christie was born and raised in Houston, Texas. Her parents are Greek immigrants who migrated to Houston from Tripoli, Greece in the 1950s. She is the fourth of five children in her family. She speaks Greek with ease and can get a lot done by talking all through.
In case you didn’t know, the oldest restaurant in Houston, “Christie’s Seafood & Steaks”, is owned by her family and has been in operation for the last 103 years.
The chance to learn about radio presented itself as she was working to put herself through school, serving customers, and basically running “Christie’s Seafood & Steaks” with her family.
She used to bring meals to a radio station and it happened that one day she was allowed to enter the studio to see the night DJ perform. The Dj was named Paul “Cubby” Bryant, and he was the one who ignited her passion for radio. That evening, Roula made the decision to pursue a career in radio.
She eventually switched her major from hospitality in restaurants to radio and television and she landed a job at KRBE. In fact, she started her broadcasting career there.
She served as “the phone girl” for two years, and as time went by, she was given the opportunity to go on television, and she has since never looked back. Roula was given the opportunity to work for Philadelphia’s Q102 Radio for the morning shift after five incredible years at KRBE.
She enjoyed three successful years as the host of the Q102 morning show. She enjoyed herself greatly while it lasted and thought that living in Philadelphia was truly an experience.
Roula took the opportunity and never looked back because, as chance would have it, Houston came calling for her to return home. In 2003, she began airing “The Roula and Ryan Show”. She has been playing on the radio for almost her whole adult life.
We can tell that Roula genuinely enjoys the work she does every single day. She completely understands how the listeners are experiencing life’s challenges. It’s very humbling and satisfying to know that she makes it easier for people to get out of bed and go through their days with smiles on their faces.
She is passionate about families and making others feel included in them. She seems to hear about someone new on the radio every day who inspires, shocks, and pushes her.
