FORDHAM UNIVERSITY Triple A WFUV/NEW YORK has announced that DON MCGEE will be the permanent host of the award-winning program "Mixed Bag," which airs every SATURDAY from 4-8p.
Radio icon PETE FORNATALE originated the program nearly 30 years ago and hosted it until his death in APRIL of this year. MCGEE has been the primary guest host for "Mixed Bag," as well as a fill-in host for WFUV’s weekday morning show.
"It is gratifying, on many levels, to see DON continue as host of 'Mixed Bag,'" said WFUV’s GM CHUCK SINGLETON. "As so many listeners have pointed out, he's the obvious choice. As PETE FORNATALE's former producer and frequent substitute, DON has been primed for this role. PETE's desire to see DON succeed him was always clear."
"I know how important 'Mixed Bag' is to so many people," said MCGEE. "I’m grateful to WFUV for this opportunity, and I thank the show’s many loyal listeners who’ve wished me well. Of course, I’ll always be grateful to PETE FORNATALE, to whom I owe so much."
