Greg McShea

I've got a long connection to the Mohawk Valley, having attended Utica schools and graduating from Utica College with a B.S. Degree in Public Relations. I've hosted a number of radio programs, and my voice has been heard on the local airwaves through the years. When I'm not broadcasting, I enjoy reading science publications and sci-fi novels, traveling to some favorite vacation spots, and anything "Star Trek". I am a native of the Utica area and have many friends and family members in the area.

Each year, I travel up to the Burke Library on the Hamilton College campus in Clinton to take out "A Christmas Carol" by Charles Dickens.

Every year, hanging the McShea family Christmas wreath on the side of our home is a tradition. Over the years, it's been an adventure. One year, I fell off the ladder and luckily landed in the snow-covered bushes in front of our house. My then five year old son ran over to me and asked, "Are you OK dad?", which I was.
