Hello Hudson Valley! I’m Conor, and you can wind down your weekend with me on Saturdays and Sundays. I was born and raised in Poughkeepsie going to Hyde Park schools. I then attended the College of Saint Rose in Albany, New York, earning a degree in Music Industry. As for previous radio experience, I interned for Exit 97.7/106.1 WEXT in Troy, New York. Off the air, I’m a singer/songwriter/producer in my own right, and try my hand in acting. Outside of work, I have a love for cooking, hiking, going to concerts, dancing (even though I have two left feet), and watching movies. One could say that I am a Star Wars and superhero fanatic, and if you bring up either topic near me, you may lose an hour of your life, at least.
