Shari Elliker is an American radio personality who has worked on a number of radio stations, primarily in the Washington/Baltimore metropolitan area.

Elliker hosted her own morning radio show on WBAL (AM) in Baltimore from 9 to noon starting in 2007,[1] but later moved to afternoons once the station went to a news format in the afternoons and moved their veteran talk show host Ron Smith to mornings. Elliker then hosted "The Afternoon News Journal with Shari Elliker" through August 2011, when WBAL chose not to renew her contract.[2]

She is the recipient of the "Outstanding Talk Show" awards from the Associated Press, Chesapeake Region for 2007 and 2008 and has received two "Achievement in Radio" Awards.

Prior to WBAL, Elliker's work history included hosting the Broadminded radio program on XM Radio through December 21, 2007, hosting her own morning show for a number of years on the legendary WHFS, 99.1 FM in Washington/Baltimore, working from 1992-96 on The Don and Mike Show, doing traffic and sitting in the "fourth chair", and at WUSA as the afternoon traffic reporter.
