Charlotte NC-born, Mia McClure, known more formally to her followers as Mia Love Live, is a jack of all trades; blazing the trail as a multi-talented creative and visionary. A product of the Charlotte Mecklenburg Public School system, McClure is one of the system's shining examples of pupils who go on to create success for themselves by defining it on their own terms. In 2012, McClure graduated from Appalachian State University, earning a degree in Sociology with a concentration in Family Development. Following college, she went into radio as a part-time personality for Charlotte's own WPEG-Power 98; eventually taking her talents to an internet radio station.
Never afraid to explore new creative ventures, in 2016 Love debuted her podcast, "Background Music", as well as a new music review show entitled "Love from the City with Mia Love" in 2019. In a year when the rest of the world was trudging through the wake of a global pandemic, Love dug deeper and began shooting her new web series, "So Anxious: An Anxious, Black Narrative," with the premier episode airing in October 2020. As she wraps the second season of her podcast, Ms. Mia Love is currently touring with her on stage production, "This Is My Brain on Anxiety: The Detailed Experience of an Anxious Black Woman."
