For five hours long, five hours strong, Chicago listeners are entertained, captivated and inspired by the hip and charismatic personality of Loni Swain. In July 2009, Swain took over the midday timeslot at Chicago's heritage Hip-Hop and R&B station, WGCI-FM. With daily show features including Job Classifieds, Entertainment Reports and the Midday Mix with Dj 33 1/3 that is not-to-be-missed, its no wonder that the 9am-2pm hours fly by for the faithful weekday listeners. Loni Swain is a well-rounded talent that has remained laser-focused in her efforts to propel her successful media career forward.
Born in New Orleans, Swain began her radio career while studying Communications at the University of New Orleans. As the Production Manager's assistant at campus based WWNO Public Radio, Swain focused on the technical aspects of radio by producing and recording live classical music segments. After three months, she simultaneously began interning at Clear Channel Radio's WQUE-FM and was hired after only six months as a part-time on air personality. In recognition of her dedication and talent, she was offered the midday time slot on sister station “Rhythmic AC/KSTE 104.1 FM”. As “Halie Diaz”, Swain shocked 104.1 (KSTE-FM) during the day and continued to satisfy her loyal listeners as “Loni” on WQUE-FM in the overnight weeknight slot and weekends. With increased ratings she held the midday slot for six months, until the station format abruptly switched. Thereafter, Swain participated in “United Radio”, which kept listeners across the country abreast of post-Katrina progress in New Orleans and all it’s surrounding areas. As a part of this effort, she interviewed state and city officials, as well as countless disaster relief teams. That same year, Swain was invited to emcee at the nation’s most unparalleled musical celebration, the Essence Music Festival.
After receiving her Bachelor of Liberal Arts degree, Swain accepted the position as afternoon-drive Co-Host and Producer at Baltimore's WERQ-FM, during which time the afternoon drive show received its highest known ratings in the history of the station. From Baltimore, Swain was offered her own show at Saint Louis' WFUN-FM as the host of Loni's Love Lounge. Upon her arrival, Loni's Love Lounge boosted the time slot's ratings in the market, consistently maintaining, at minimum, top four rankings and becoming the highest rated show on the station. It’s apparent that Swain’s top priority in this industry is to become a household name. Given her proven track record of success, she is well on her way.

There's a lot to love about Beyoncé, from her grace to her unbeatable dance moves. Let's count down what the megastar has taught us about love.<:section class="ad block ad-in-content">
1. Keep Your Relationship Private
One thing, among the many things, that Jodie Foster touched on during her Golden Globes speech was the importance of keeping her love life private. Jay-z and Beyoncé are the ultimate power couple and they're always in the news. They look happy and in love, and their hand-holding at basketball games and song lyrics prove it, but they know the importance of keeping their relationship details private. They don't brag about their love or complain about things on Twitter — which seems rare nowadays. There's less people involved, less speculation and less drama.
2. Be Independent
She's married to one of the most successful men in the business, but it doesn't stop her from being as powerful or successful as ever. Beyoncé knows the importance of being a strong woman, with songs like "Independant Woman" and "Run the World (Girls)" to back it up. Even when she split from Destiny's Child, she remained friends with the other girls and didn't let the fame go to her head. Recently, the girl group announced a reunion. In July 2011, she told Essence: "We were taught we needed a plan and the discipline to execute that plan to the fullest. I strongly believe if you work hard, whatever you want, it will come to you."
3. Be Confident
When "Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It)" came out, Beyoncé unleashed the new anthem of female empowerment. With Sasha Fierce, the star's alter-ego, she's sassy, strong and well, fierce. But she doesn't even need an alter ego to convey her confidence. Never afraid to show off her curves or be bootylicious, Beyoncé is a refreshing reminder of how to love yourself and be totally free, comfortable and sexy.
4. Be Supportive
While the model couple keeps tight-lipped about their relationship, they still work together and achieve greatness somehow through their insanely busy schedules and even join each other on stage from time to time. From countless song collaborations to joint business projects, it's clear they work together and communicate well.
5. Be Classy
Beyoncé handles herself well. When her album '4' leaked, she didn't get angry or vent over social media about it. When Kanye interrupted Taylor Swift's award at the VMA's, she gave young starlet the chance to have her moment later on in the show. Unlike her peers, Beyoncé hasn't had a sex tape, too much plastic surgery or a major scandal. She's sexy— but there's a lot more to her and she makes it known.
