Meet Our Team!
Program Director; Afernoons 2p-7p, Monday through Friday
You might remember Ferg, who spent some time with the station in…well, let’s say, some warm and FUZZY times. He’s a lifelong NEPA resident, and has been in radio for the last decade. He started as an intern, working for the promotions department at the radio stations and as a morning show intern. He got bumped up to part-time, then full-time, then no-time, then full-time again. Funny how it all works.
Ferg lives and breathes alternative rock, particularly when it’s done by the bands Muse, Radiohead or Interpol, so if you hear a lot of them, you’ll know why. Ferg enjoys Game of Thrones, Mad Men, Lord of the Rings, LeBron James, Liverpool FC, Unsweetened Dunkin’ Iced Tea, grilling, long road trips, and talking to NEPA every day.
– Once flew to Seattle with his girlfriend (Now wife) Gina, and drove back across the country to NEPA in 9 days.
– Has won two state awards for sports broadcasting, and still calls play-by-play for select football, basketball, and hockey games in NEPA.
– Won Student Body President at Dunmore High School (Go Bucks) on a campaign to lower cookie prices. Unfortunately, he didn’t actually accomplish that campaign promise.
– First job was as an ice cream scooper at Manning’s Farm Dairy in their Dunmore location.
– Has a son (Nole), a dog (Clementine), and a cat (Moo). Also has a wife (Gina), who will one day wake up and realize she can do much better. Until then, Ferg will ride the wave.
