  • Bill Keeler has been named the new morning show host on WIBX 950 AM.
    The local radio and television personality’s program, called “WIBX First News with Keeler in the Morning,” will debut at 6 a.m. on Monday, Jan. 14, according to a release from Townsquare Media.
    “I am so excited about doing mornings on WIBX,” said Keeler in a statement released to news outlets on Wednesday. “This is a heritage radio station that has been around for 87 years and it remains one of the top stations in the market. I can’t wait to get on the air and get started.”
    “I love this city and feel we’re on the verge of a reinvention,” added Keeler, who will broadcast from 6 to 9 a.m. weekdays alongside news anchor and Townsquare Bureau Chief Kristine Bellino. “This is a home for me and my family and I’m just thrilled to not have to take a job outside the area.”
    “We are so excited to bring Keeler’s energy to WIBX in the morning,” said Karen Carey, vice president and general manager of Townsquare Media Utica, in a statement. “The station already leads the way with radio news in the market and I feel the addition of Bill in the morning is going to add a whole new dynamic to the morning commute.”
    Keeler currently hosts a restaurant television program called “Plate Night,” which airs Saturday evenings at 7 p.m. on WKTV. He has also been instrumental in many community events, including annual toy drives and the recent collection for Hurricane Sandy victims on Staten Island.
    WIBX is affiliated with Fox News Radio, as well as the NFL and NASCAR radio networks. It broadcasts programs by syndicated radio hosts Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Glenn Beck.
