Utica-Rome Radio: Bill Keeler Says WIBX Show Is Progressing

Bill Keeler
Arguably the most famous radio personality in the history of the Utica-Rome, NY market, Bill Keeler gives a glimpse into his thoughts on how his three decade-plus career at local radio stations continues to be a work in progress, according to  Don Laible of the Utica Observer-Dispatch.

Through hard work and talent, over the years Keeler hosted morning radio programs have always been in the top one, two, or three rated positions.  When many residents in the Mohawk Valley have awakened weekday mornings through the years, chances are they were joined by Keeler -  the morning rock jock. 

Quite the opposite can be said today as host of Keeler In The Morning. The Mohawk native addresses more serious, timely news issues having far lasting ramifications than Oneida and Herkimer counties.  Keeler will always be fighting off the reputation of being nothing more than a prankster.  Fortunately for him, Keeler's talk time on N/T WIBX 950 AM will no doubt put a crack in the outdated tag.

"I tried to get with WIBX for the past  three, maybe four years", Keeler said.  "Not being taken seriously bothered me".

Keeler believes, and no doubt there were former radio programmers as well as occasional listeners who thought when going to WIBX  that he would make a mockery of  the show. 

“The show is progressing as I knew it would", says Keeler.
