Judy DeAngelis Hosts WFDU's RetroRadio

Teaneck, NJ (May 5, 2016) Starting May 17, former 1010 WINS morning news anchor, Judy DeAngelis will begin hosting WFDU’s Tuesday version of RetroRadio.

Judy DeAngleis“The opportunity to be behind the mic was too enticing to resist,” said Judy DeAngelis. “I am a child of that era and I just love the music. I’ve got my dancin’ shoes on, so grab yours and come join me!”

Judy looks forward to bringing her special blend of “oldies” to WFDU’s new premier music format now available at 89.1 Mhz on the FM dial Tuesdays through Fridays from 6-9 a.m. and Mondays through Fridays from 1-4 p.m.

WFDU General Manager and Program Director Duff Sheffield says, “The new format will attract a broad listening audience in new listening areas on Long Island and Connecticut along with 5 NYC boroughs and North Jersey and I'm is thrilled to be able to put Judy back on the airwaves.” Judy DeAngelis will be playing her favorite “comfort food” popular music from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s with an emphasis on taking requests from the listeners at 201-692-2012.

Although Judy was a NYC Metro’s favorite radio news anchor for almost 40 years, Judy has always had a passion for music. She had a career as a singer in musical theater as a cast member of the Broadway show Rockabye Hamlet and in her own woman show An Evening with Judy along with consistent work in summer stock theather.
