There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you ~ Maya Angelou

As we look back at memories here at WOBM I can't help but remember all the great interviews I have been a part of here on the morning show. I've done many in my 22 years hosting the Ocean County Breakfast Show, but one that sticks out is when Sue & I sat down to chat and have coffee with the legendary Maya Angelou. When you listen to Maya speak you can feel her passion, knowledge, and wisdom. She was truly a literary icon.

Among Maya's accomplishments:

  • Pulitzer Prize Nominee
  • Presidential Medal of Freedom
  • National Medal of the Arts
  • Grammy Winner
  • Tony Award Nominee
  • National Women's Hall of Fame
  • Crystal Award
  • Coretta Scott King Award
  • Lincoln Medal

These are just a few of her lifetime achievements. It was a great honor for Sue and me to do this interview prior to Maya Angelou's death in 2014.

Listen to a portion of Shawn & Sue's Interview with Maya from 11 years ago in 2007:
