WABC Radio Host Bernie McGuirk, Age 64, Died of Prostate Cancer

Bernie was a class act... ~Bill Donohue Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on the death of Bernie McGuirk: The death of WABC radio host Bernie McGuirk comes as a shock, notwithstanding the fact his health condition was known to be perilous. The show that he co-hosted with Sid Rosenberg—“Bernie and Sid in the Morning”—brought joy to the lives of their fans for many years. He died of prostate cancer at the age of 64 on October 5. Of all the TV and radio shows I have done, none has been more fun than my time spent with Bernie and Sid. They are two of the greatest guys in the business. Smart, quick, courageous and humorous—it is no surprise their show was the number-one rated morning show in the New York area. Bernie was a class act. May he rest in peace. Read more →

THE STORY BEHIND THE STORY:

The Gloucester City Crime Reports/Part II

Dorothy Philbin | CNBNewsnet I don't like being used as the city's ATM. And in return, what do I (or we) get? That's an easy answer. Not enough! I realize that things change over the years, but there is a difference between routine change over time and spending the taxpayers' money irresponsibly. There are a few things that we've always had that have been taken away, regardless of the city payroll increasing exponentially. Something so simplistic as weekly police and fire reports. Why can't the taxpayers know what is happening in their town, especially now that crime is so abundant. Our part-time Police Chief/part-time interim City Administrator says that such a report, which has always been available, is now too much work. That's not a problem for me. I'm retired and have plenty of time on my hands, so I volunteered to do the work. I sent the e-mail below... Read more →
