Sue Tabb

  • When did you start at MAGIC?  I've been in radio for almost 20 years but started at MAGIC in March of 2013.
  • Favorite type of food?  All and any.  There isn't much I won't eat but I especially love Italian food.  Of course French Fries and Ice Cream are high on the list.  Nothing low calorie!
  • Favorite MAGIC artist?  So many!  Some favorites include Pink, Adele, Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars, Maroon 5 and Alicia Keys.
  • Favorite new TV show?  This is Us.
  • Favorite drink?  A Cosmopolitan or Blue Moon (or both).
  • Favorite thing to cook?  Wait, let me stop laughing.  I'm an awful cook.  My favorite thing is making reservations.
  • Favorite place to vacation?  Probably Negril, Jamaica.  Beaches, Drinks, Steel Drums…what's not to love?
  • What would your alternate career be if you didn’t work at MAGIC?  I'd like to have Savannah Guthrie’s job on the Today show.  Her salary would be nice too…
  • What’s the worst job you ever had?  Working in a tobacco field the summer of my freshman year in high school.  I grew up in Western Mass and spent that summer "sewing" leaves in a 100 degree barn.  This will motivate anyone to go to college.  Working the drive-through at Burger King ranks a close second.
  • Who is your celebrity crush?  There are many. Adam Levine, John Stamos, Tom Brady and THE ROCK!
  • Dogs or Cats, or Neither?  I prefer dogs but I'm highly allergic...sadly.
  • Favorite place to take tourist friends when they visit Boston? To a show at the Opera House.  Dinner in the North End.  Shopping on Newbury Street.
