During a ceremony on Wednesday, Oct. 26, 77 WABC Radio dedicated its main studio to Bernard “Bernie” McGuirk, the long-time morning radio personality, who passed away earlier this month from prostate cancer. Wednesday would have been McGuirk’s 65th birthday.
McGuirk had co-hosted “Bernie & Sid in the Morning” with Sid Rosenberg since 2018. He initially started at WABC in 2007 as executive producer of the “Imus in the Morning Show.”
77 WABC had previously honored the life of McGuirk with an all-day special tribute on Oct. 12.
