Boston Radio: Talk WMEX To Import Afternoon Show

Bill Keeler
WIBX 950 AM Utica morning-show host Bill Keeler will soon be hosting an afternoon show on WMEX 1510 AM in Boston.  His new show starts Tuesday but he'll continue with his morning drive-time show in Utica.

Boston WMEX operations manager and morning host John Pica told the Utica Observer-Dispatch  he thought of Keeler for the opening because they’d co-hosted a show on a Providence, Rhode Island, station in the mid-1990s, and Keeler proved able to adapt to local audiences.

Townsquare Media Utica executive Karen Carey notified WIBX staff of Keeler’s move to a top-10 market Thursday. There’s no relationship between the stations. “We’re really excited for him.” Carey said.

Keeler said he’s staying in Utica because of family. “This is my home and that’s why I’m doing it this way.”
