From WLIR To WRNR, He Championed Progressive Rock. Now He’s Moving On


Forty-three years ago, he began his career at a Class A FM at 92.7 MHz serving Nassau County, N.Y., and parts of New York City with a mix of rock and punk music that would eventually coalesce under leadership that built a radio station that “Dared to Be Different.”

He later made waves as the man who preceded Howard Stern in overnights at a station that previously featured Jay Thomas in mornings that just couldn’t shake its association with Disco.

For the last 18 years, he’s been running a Class A Adult Alternative FM based in Maryland’s state capital.

Now, Bob Waugh is ready to say farewell.
