    • Bob, thanks for your reply. As I’m sure you’re aware, we primarily focus on New Jersey history, individuals and radio talent. Your query had to do with radio personalities on (then) WMGM and WABC. As the WMGM of those days no longer actually exists, and since WABC has been through multiple changes of ownership/management, I would recommend that you approach the announcers’ union, AFTRA – the American Federation of Television & Radio Artists (New York chapter) for their assistance. Thank you! – Rich Phoenix, RMC, NJ Radio Museum President.
