Veteran broadcasters Gary McNamara and Eric Harley are your hosts on Red Eye Radio. Currently airing on 80 stations, the nationally syndicated program has been hosted since its launch in 2010 by popular on-air personality and Los Angeles Daily News columnist, Doug McIntyre. McNamara and Harley are no strangers to overnight programming having entertained listeners across the country with their show, The Midnight Radio Network, for the past six years.
“Adding Eric and Gary to our versatile lineup of talk programming is a fantastic opportunity for the network and provides two dynamic personalities to our affiliates,” said Dennis Green, Senior Vice President of Affiliate Sales and Broadcast Operations for Cumulus Media Networks. “This is another daypart where we can offer high-quality solutions to stations looking for relevant content that connects with local audiences. We truly appreciate the road map Doug has created for delivering overnight listener engagement with Red Eye Radio and we’re proud that he will continue to be part of our company.”
McNamara’s talk radio career began in 1989 at WJJL Niagara Falls, NY. He has also broadcast from WBEN in Buffalo, WLS in Chicago and KXL in Portland, OR. In 2000 he joined the roster at Dallas/Fort Worth’s WBAP where he served as an afternoon drive personality. In 2005 the station paired him with trucking industry icon and on-air talent Eric Harley to co-host The Midnight Radio Network, which had built a loyal following among late night radio listeners. Prior to hosting the late night syndicated program, Harley served as a producer for the show and also hosted the Pure Gold format for ABC Radio Networks.
“We’re thrilled to be taking up the Red Eye Radio banner to deliver the day’s top stories along with our own blend of ‘regular guy’ perspectives to an even larger audience,” said Harley. “Gary and I love keeping our listeners informed and entertained as they tune in throughout the early morning hours. We’ll be working with each of our new affiliates to make sure we’re giving them a great platform to attract overnight audiences and advertisers.”
