A familiar voice is returning to the morning airwaves and we’re sure that you know who it is…
Broadcasting legend Danny Neaverth will be moving to Monday mornings on WECK-AM/FM starting on Monday, February 25.
Neaverth was a longstanding voice of morning radio in Buffalo having worked for over 40 years in a morning capacity at WHTT-FM, WKBW-AM, and WWKB-AM.
He will join Gail Ann Huber and Tom Donohue from 6 to 9 a.m. and Vice President of Programming and Afternoon Drive DJ Glenn Topoloski will fill Neaverth’s former Friday afternoon slot.
The move revives the “Danny Moves Your Fanny in the Morning” slogan back to the Buffalo airwaves.
Spectrum News Buffalo is welcoming two new members to their team.
Jeannie McBride (right) has joined the station as a reporter/anchor. McBride comes to WNY from just down the 90 from Rochester, New York, where she was a reporter/anchor for WROC-TV for two years.
McBride, a Cleveland native, also worked at WFFT-TV in Fort Wayne, Indiana before moving to Western New York. The University of Akron graduate also was a contributor to WKYC-TV.
In the same building, Amanda Berg is now a producer at the station. She is a Brockport graduate and previously had worked at WHAM-AM and WCJW-AM.
WKBW-TV announced the hire of multimedia journalist Ala Errebhi (top) earlier this week, effective immediately.
Errebhi comes from Rochester, Minnesota and was a reporter for KTTC-TV. She’s a graduate of California State, where she studied broadcast journalism.
In a press release from the station, it’s mentioned that Errebhi is a dual citizen of Tunisia and the United States. She’s also fluent in Arabic and has working knowledge of German and Korean.
While 96.1 The Breeze blew away a number of DJ’s, the only one to stay on from before the format change is Juli Hinds.
Hinds is currently covering the midday and afternoon drive slot of the Townsquare station from 12 to 7 p.m.
Not only that, Hinds is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Communication and Sport Studies at Medaille College. She holds a doctorate from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, which she earned in 2013.
