NEW ROCHELLE, NY -- In a move that makes sense for all kinds of reasons, Bob Marrone is returning to WVOX 1460 AM, where he first made a name for himself in morning drive radio. He takes over the Good Morning Westchester program which airs Monday through Friday from 6AM to 9AM.
The first show, slated for Monday, February 29, 2016, figures to be a homecoming filled with old friends, new voices and lots of fun. Indeed, New Rochelle has always been his home base in Westchester County, where he now resides and serves as the executive director of the Chamber of Commerce. Most recently, Bob broadcast Mornings with Bob Marrone at WFAS-AM until the station changed its format at the end of January. There he built upon his reputation as a knowledgeable, warm and, at times, irreverently funny morning host.
The show on WVOX will continue to offer the broad variety of guests and topics that you expect. From Westchester to the White House, From Vietnam to New Rochelle, we will feature those who make the news and those who need their story told. Of course, Westchester, Putnam and Rockland Counties will be our primary focus as we deal with issues important to them such as flood mitigation, education and infrastructure.
We will continue to provide public service elements, such as our traditional efforts to highlight and help organizations dedicated to mental illness and those associated with curing ALS and other diseases. Lastly, we will continue to welcome all-comers, whether they be callers or local bloggers.
We look forward bringing together the listeners and callers of WVOX, while those of WFAS into a single interacting and involved mail. We are also planning ways to keep the conversation going as the news day proceeds. Most importantly, it will be nice to come home to the “Americas Great Community Radio Station,” 1460 WVOX.
