Reynolds Honored By New Jersey Legislature


With a joint resolution from the New Jersey Senate and the New Jersey Assembly, iconic broadcaster Joey Reynolds was bestowed the honor of a “Distinguished Achievement in Broadcasting” award.

Reynolds received the recognition, from Senator Weinberg, Assemblyman Johnson and Assemblywoman Vainieri Huttle, as he was saluted by the Cedar Lane Management Group during its Annual Teaneck Cedar Lane Family Festival.

Joey Reynolds was a morning host on rock radio in the 1990’s. He started his career in the ‘60s and was named “DJ of the Year” for three consecutive years by Billboard. Joey managed an AM radio station in Lakewood, NJ in the early ‘70s with a hybrid talk & music format. In 1985, Joey Reynolds landed at 66 WNBC-AM in NYC doing afternoons, preceded by mornings at 56 WFIL-AM, Philadelphia. He was also heard on 710 WOR-AM in NYC (and the WOR Network) for nearly 15 years.


  1. As a born son of New Jersey, and an early and proud member of the Royal Order of the Night People (Joey knows what I mean by that), I not only salute Joey for this award, but recall with absolute fondness his tenure at WKBW in Buffalo, which covered New Jersey (plus the whole Northeast) like a blanket, back in radio’s Golden Age (which was also when WKBW, now WWKB, didn’t cut transmitter power at night, like they seem to be doing lately). Hats off.
