Keith McPherson and Sal Licata will host WFAN’s late-night and night shows, the station announced Wednesday. The moves coincide with the departure of longtime late-night host Steve Somers after his last full show on Friday night.
McPherson will be heard from 6 p.m. 7pm to midnight, starting November 22nd. From Monday, Licata will be on the air from midnight to noon.
Licata is a familiar voice at WFAN. McPherson is new to the station. He had served as social media manager and podcast host for Jomboy Media since January 2020. Prior to that, he had worked in a number of other roles on social media.
“Keith and Sal will form a dynamic evening one-to-two punch as both have the passion and drive to usher in an exciting new era at The Fan,” Chris Oliviero, Marketing Manager for Audacy New York, said in a press release. “Those hours became a must-listen for decades with the iconic Steve Somers behind the microphone, and it will continue as Keith and Sal entertain the tristate area every night, whether on the go or even at home under the duvet.”
Said Licata in a press release: “Having a full-time show on WFAN means everything to me. It is an honor and a privilege to have the opportunity to speak sports every night with the most passionate fans, in the biggest city in the world, at the best sports speech station ever created. That’s all I’ve ever wanted. “
Licata started as an intern at WFAN in January 2003.
