Don McGee Named Host of WFUV’s ‘Mixed Bag’

Don McGee has been named the new host of WFUV’s award-winning weekly program, “Mixed Bag.” McGee succeeds Pete Fornatale, the iconic founder of the program, who died in late April from complications due to a stroke. McGee has experience working with Fornatale and has been the main guest host of Mixed Bag, which made him the perfect fit.

“It is gratifying, on many levels, to see Don continue as host of ‘Mixed Bag,’” WFUV’s general manager, Chuck Singleton, said in a press release. “As so many listeners have pointed out, he’s the obvious choice. As Pete Fornatale’s former producer and frequent substitute, Don has been primed for this role. Pete’s desire to see Don succeed him was always clear.”

Mixed Bag airs every Saturday night starting at 4 pm.
