Double Your Dollars

Mike McKay

By his own account, Mike McKay has lived a charmed life. This year, he and his wife, Nancy, will celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary. Their daughter, Erin, graduated from the University of Wisconsin where she studied zoology and now cares for the animals she loves – great apes – at the Fort Worth Zoo.

Mike has been fortunate to spend his adult life doing what he always wanted to do – entertaining listeners on the radio.

He was born and grew up in Brooklyn, N. Y. After graduating from college with a B. A. in English Literature from Saint Anselm College he began working, somewhat inexplicably, in the financial sector in lower Manhattan. But it wasn’t long before he began pursuing a dream born years before while listening to the Beatles on New York’s WABC radio. Soon he was offered a position in sales at an AM station in tiny Lehighton, PA. Within a month he was doing the morning show. Five years later, he landed an on air gig at the most listened to station in the nation which just happened to be that very station he tuned in while in high school – WABC 770 which was heard in more than 30 states.

By the early eighties however, music on radio was making it’s inexorable transition to FM. Although that meant leaving the station he grew up with, it brought other remarkable opportunities. Mike went on to a pioneering position in satellite radio hosting Nighttime America on the RKO Radio Network which was heard on hundreds of radio stations in all fifty states. Later he was able to live and work in other parts of the country, including Salt Lake City, Indianapolis, and Detroit. In ’97, the family moved to the great southwest which led to the ultimate opportunity when an entrepreneurial listener, Ned Bennett, approached Mike with a plan to form a new radio company. And Bravo Mic Communications was born.

Today, and every day, Mike looks forward to getting up early and joining his on air partner and great friend for the last 14 years, KC Counts, for “Your Morning Show with Mike and KC” which has been the most popular radio show in southern New Mexico for several years running.
