Robin Sagon Drews: Co-Founder of Independence Day Clothing

My NativeAdVantage:


Robin Sagon spent more than 20 years in broadcast radio, many as the news voice of NYC rock powerhouse, WNEW-FM.  Her unique position gave her a front row seat to many of the 70's and 80's seminal events, from Simon and Garfunkel's concert in Central Park, to the hallways of Roosevelt Hospital with the death of John Lennon.  She was backstage at rock concerts, from the Rolling Stones, to Bruce Springsteen and got to know many of the greats who walked through the doors at 'NEW for interviews on her groundbreaking talk show, "FM".   Later, at CBS Radio Networks, Robin was a news anchor, and continued to cover entertainment stories for the radio giant.  Robin has joined with former news colleague, Lauren Thierry to launch Independence Day Clothing, a GPS enabled, easy on and off line of clothing aimed at the 23 million Americans who have difficulty getting dressed.  For more information, please visit
