Tom McKenna Takes Over Mornings At Classic Hits 104.7

Meet the new morning host on Classic Hits 104.7.  He’s Tom McKenna.  Tom is semi-retired and works part-time as a golfer (sort of), but admittedly is not very good at it. So he decided that he needed to come back to his first love – radio! We are pleased to have him join us as the newest volunteer in the WITG family.  

Born in The Bronx, Tom’s family moved to North Central New York when he was three.  The family moved to the Syracuse area when he was 12.  There ,Tom graduated from East Syracuse Minoa Central High School in 1969 and entered the U.S. Air Force in 1970. 

While in the Air Force, Tom was introduced to radio while stationed in Massachusetts.  A friend talked Tom into volunteering at the base radio station.  That’s all it took.  From then on, Tom was hooked.  Tom spent the next few years cross training into the broadcasting career field.  He succeeded in 1977, then spent the next 7 years in various assignments in Italy, South Korea, West Germany and Wyoming and was a broadcaster for AFRN (armed forces radio network)

After leaving the Air Force in 1985, Tom spent the next 20 years working in various stations in and around Central New York including Utica, Syracuse, Cortland, Norwich and a few to be mentioned in the second edition.  Needless to say, he was and still is a radio aficionado. 

Tom is also an avid scuba diver, and volunteers as a member of American Legion  Honor Guard. 

But most of all he is at the beck and call of his wife and their two cats. 

Give Tom a listen from 6 to 9 AM weekday mornings. He will also soon be giving away golf passes at the Ocala Golf Club.  And if you ask nicely, he may go with you so that your game will look even better.
