Tony Magoo

I started my radio career at WJJL in Niagara Falls in the fall of 1975. I worked though the Blizzard with a staff that included Joe Chille. In 1980 Harv Moore hired me to do weekends at WPhD. Hank Nevins gave me a job at Magic 102.5 in 1988, and then I moved to work at 103.3 The Fox in Buffalo and stayed there until 1993. I left Buffalo in the fall of 1995 and headed for Greenville SC to do afternoon drive for Ken Carson…he hired me at the Fox in Buffalo back in the early 90’s. Stayed there for five years. Then it was off to Nashville and the Big 98…WSIX to do middays. Huge country station. After a management change on all levels I moved to Knoxville, TN to do mornings at WIMZ. Two years later I was off to Detroit to do mornings at the CBS country station there, WYCD. Another management shuffle forced me to look elsewhere and I was off to WFBE, a country station in Flint Michigan. Loved it there…we were killing it until I came down with stage 4 head and neck cancer. I took a year and a half to heal. An old buddy of mine put me on in Detroit to fill in during the holidays…just to see if I could still do the job. My body went through a lot of changes when I got cancer. Within a month I was on my way to do afternoon drive at KZPS in Dallas. Another top to bottom management change two years later and I was almost going to head for TV. I was asked to host a TV show for motorcycle enthusiasts that looks a lot like what Norman Reedus is doing. Here’s the upside…I got to ride my Harley on the Pacific Coast Highway. It wasn’t picked up, so my next move was to head to north Mississippi to do mornings at a country station that we put on the air just south of Memphis. The economy took a dive and my friend lost his business, and I lost my job. The woman that loved me asked me to come and be with her, so I did. I have been doing some news, weather and traffic all up and down the eastern seaboard from my home, and then Buddy contacted me. Yes you can come home!
