Keeler in the Morning

I am the morning host of First News with Keeler in the Morning, which airs weekday mornings from 6 - 9 a.m. on WIBX. The program is also simulcast live on WFXV FOX 33 TV. I landed my first radio job in 1981 as a junior in high school. My career has spanned 30-plus years in markets like Providence, Syracuse and Albany; but, WIBX and Utica are home. I grew up in nearby Mohawk and I'm living and working here today because of family. I'm married to my former producer, Alison, who sometimes guest-spots on the program. I have three children and both my parents and in-laws live in the area. Through the years, I've also worked in newspaper and television. I currently own a company that produces television commercials and specializes in political campaigns. I've also hosted several television programs including a food and nightlife TV show called, “Plate Night.” I'm a fan of politics, music, song parodies, the New York Mets, Syracuse Orange, Buffalo Bills, the Utica Comets and the Utica Pioneers. I'm proud of our three Guinness Book records, including one that still stands, the World’s Largest Jelly Doughnut which was made at the old Riverside Mall in Utica back in the 90’s. I've focused my charity work on children, raising hundreds of thousands of dollars over the years for various causes, most notably his annual Toy Drive which benefits Operation Sunshine.
