CONNOISSEUR MEDIA LONG ISLAND long running ADULT STANDARDS WHLI,(1100AM/ 1370AM)/HEMPSTEAD, NY, has hired on-air personality BILL "THE WISEMAN' WISE as morning drive host and PD.
WHLI blossomed into a heritage brand under the direction of DEAN ANTHONY. Before his passing, ANTHONY worked closely with THE WISEMAN to pass the torch to the next generation of listeners. He’s been a part of the WHLI team for years and this is the next natural transgression to continuing ANTHONY’s legacy.
“It’s an exciting time for all of us here at WHLI,” said CONNOISSEUR L.I. GM/Market Manager JIM CONDRON. “THE WISEMAN is a recognizable and popular brand in himself and to be able to merge his likeness with the heritage format of WHLI creates a winning combination for our listeners, the community and our clientele.”
Under THE WISEMAN’s direction, WHLI will continue the tradition of "Playing the Music of a Lifetime," featuring a range of genres from standards to oldies.
“We’re bringing the fun and the oldies back to LONG ISLAND,” said THE WISEMAN. “Get your lucky bucks ready and tune in MONDAY morning for the all new Morning Show with me, THE WISEMAN, waking you up and starting your day”.
