He will continue his voice over work and guest hosting on Scott Shannon’s syndicated “True Oldies Channel.”

“We’d like to thank Trish and Peter Garber, Diane Hansell and Gary Berkowitz for this awesome opportunity to join their team to create big, fun, live and local radio in one of America’s premiere vacation cities! Whether it was close to my family in New England or Rochelle’s in Pure Michigan, we were looking for that special situation to make a difference and to work with Gary and be a part of the tradition of excellence at MG Broadcasting is nothing short of that! Let’s go!” Bridges remarked.
