Pat St. John
Cool,Hip,Class; Those are the three words that describe my friend Pat St. John
I remember first talking to Pat
when I was in high school, just to request a song, and thinking how nice this guy was!
When I finally got to meet Pat
, I was visiting WPLJ
to do interviews for my college radio station with some of the DJ's, and when I saw the long hair, the oversize jewelery and heard the voice, I knew I wanted to be in radio!
What better inspiration than a DJ from your favorite FM radio station?
is celebrating 30 years of being in New York radio...there aren't to many people who can make that claim, and be truly happy about it.
Pat's professional career started at CKLW in 1969, and from there to WKNR in 1970, WRIF 1972, and WPLJ in 1973, where he stayed for an amazing 14 years!
From there, he went to WNEW-FM for 11 years, where he also was program director.
In 1998, he
joined fledgling Sirius Satellite Radio, and in 2001, went to WCBS-FM
, where he
did the Saturday/Sunday 11PM-4AM shift.
Pat is now a really busy guy...he does the 10 AM-3 PM show Sunday mid-day show at WCBS-FM, and is also a host and program manager of several shows at SiriusXM Satellite Radio.
