Magnum Media’s WVTY-FM in Racine-Milwaukee has tapped veteran Milwaukee radio personality Van McNeil to handle early afternoons from Noon – 3 p.m. This will be McNeil’s first foray into the Country format.
“Honestly, I’m excited and a little scared.” said McNeil. “I’ve covered many different formats in my career including Top 40, Pop, Adult Contemporary, Adult Hits, Classic Hits, Oldies, Sports Talk and News, but actually, I was raised on Country. Growing up, when “Pops,” my late Father, was working on the truck, smashing aluminum cans or fixing my bike, he had Country music on. If radio waves emanate all the way up to Heaven, I know he’ll get a kick out of his kid finally playing Country music.”
Owner Dave Magnum stated, “We’ve had the good fortune to work with Van for the past two years. Coupled with his playful side, he has a genuine empathy for other people. Those combined traits will connect well with the Country lifestyle group.”
