Angie Skinner is far from the typical driver’s wife. Since becoming involved in the NASCAR Industry more than 10 years ago, the Ohio native has done everything from negotiate contracts for NASCAR radio broadcasts to writing NASCAR-themed books, and managing successful charity events all while playing a vital role in managing her husband’s career.
Skinner began her career in the radio industry after obtaining her degree at Capital University in Columbus, Ohio. After spending nearly five years working as a radio personality and marketing professional, Skinner worked to bring NASCAR broadcasts into the programming at CBS Radio WHOK. The project increased Skinner’s exposure to motorsports and marked the beginning of a new chapter in both her professional and personal life.
In May 1999, Skinner took on the role of Vice President and Business Operations at Mike Skinner Enterprises where she helped manage all facets of her husband’s career. At the same time, she continued to develop her career as a successful and trusted journalist. Skinner kicked off her writing career with the book, Turning Points, Defining Moments in the Lives of NASCAR Superstars. After the project’s successful debut in 2004, Skinner served as a freelance writer for several publications including NASCAR Insider: Members Magazine and Racing Milestones Magazine. By 2007, Skinner incorporated her love of cooking with her career as an author to publish Race Day Grub.
In February 2011 Skinner joined the Sirius NASCAR Radio family with more than 15 years of experience and in reporting and media relations. Listen for Skinner on Sirius Speedway with Dave Moody, Monday through Friday 3:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. EST.
