Currently, the former New York City Power 105.1 morning show host heads On Air with Egypt, a hit midday show on Atlanta’s top-rated radio station V103. And the married mother of one is also enjoying her fourth season as the host of HGTV’s long-running Property Virgins, which caters to first-time homebuyers.
The Philadelphia native—a fixture on the radio waves for almost two decades—launched her career in her hometown at just 19 years old and has never looked back.
Once a regular on The Maury Show, Sherrod seized the HGTV opportunity when original host Sandra Rinomato moved on. “When they began their search for a new face and voice,” Sherrod shares, “my team and I felt that I was a good fit for HGTV and vice versa.”
And according to the show’s numbers, they were right. Since joining the team, Sherrod says “I have helped to not only maintain the history of high ratings, but, as an African-American woman, I’ve also helped to grow the audience by being an additional face of color on the network.”
Sherrod, also a successful, licensed real estate agent, offers eight professional thoughts and tips on buying and selling homes in this increasingly optimistic market.
