B105.7 Radio Personality Bernie Eagan is stepping away from the mic after 37 years in the business!
Great Day TV’s Patty Spitler joins us, alongside Bernie, to chat about the next chapter in his life and to celebrate his incredible career.
Did you know? Beech Grove-native Bernie Eagan was born blind, but he didn’t let that stop him from pursuing a love of music and entertainment. After graduating from the Indiana School for the Blind in 1975, Bernie went on to Ball State University where he graduated with a degree in Radio and Television Communications. He then accepted a position as a Programming Consultant at WWHC-FM (now WMXQ-FM) Hartford City and was hired part time by WERK-AM Muncie.
In July 1981, Bernie began working at Emmis Communications, specifically with WENS (now WLHK-FM) Indianapolis eventually becoming Music Director and Assistant Program Director along with hosting the afternoon drive from 1984 – 2002. He also hosted Friday Night Retro Show from 1999-2002.
From 2002 – 2010, Bernie hosted mornings on WYXB-FM Indianapolis and, since 2010, has hosted afternoons on WYXB-FM Indianapolis.
He is also going to be inducted to the Indiana Broadcasters Hall of Fame on Thursday, Nov. 1 at lunch during the annual Indiana Broadcasters Conference in Carmel.
Patty describes Bernie as, “A nice guy who gives us all hope. No matter the disability, you find something you love and do it to the best of your ability.”
