Afternoon host Bernie Eagan has announced he will retire from afternoons at Emmis AC “B105.7” WYXB Indianapolis on Friday, July 20.
Eagan has been with WYXB since soon after its launch in 2002 after spending over two decades at sister 97.1 WENS. Eagan is one of the few totally blind on-air personalities in the country. Eagan told sister News/Talk 93.1 WIBC, that he rarely mentions it on air because “it doesn’t add to the show, it doesn’t take away from the show. If it made a difference, they probably wouldn’t have hired me.”
During his time at WENS and WYXB, Eagan has spent time as both morning and afternoon host and served as APD of WENS during the 1990s.
