Originally hailing from the city of Detroit, Amanda “ICE” Habrowski is now a proud resident of Portland. None other than Public Enemy’s Flavor Flav coined her infamous “ICE” moniker during a stint on VH1’s “Flavor of Love 3,” where, unfortunately, Ms. Habrowski did not find the love she was searching for. But everything turned out just fine, because it left her with a rad nickname and another VH1 appearance on “I Love Money 2.” A big fan of house and techno, Amanda holds true to her Detroit roots with a love for dance music and can often be spotted dancing when she thinks no one is looking. She is also madly in love with cheese—cheddar, swiss, gouda; Amanda does not discriminate against any variety and can be wooed with a couple slices. Her one-of-a-kind voice has been heard on the radio for 10 years now, bringing her to the Portland market, where she spins today’s hottest tracks fused with a Detroit-bred passion for music.
Alpha Media VP of Programming, Phil Becker had the following to say, “It has always been our companies policy to allow music to be programmed on the local level. ICE’s passion for music and our industry will benefit everyone involved with Live 95.5.”
“There’s no other station I’d rather be at than Live 955. Alpha Media takes care of their employees and I cannot WAIT to make the most out of this opportunity,” stated ICE.
