Famed Long Island Jock ‘Malibu’ Sue Finally Reaches New York Airwaves at Fresh 102.7/WWFS

We told you last month about veteran DJ ”Malibu” Sue McCann being let go at WMJC.

McCann, a staple on Long Island radio for more than two decades, has cracked the New York market for the first time in her career.

Since Thanksgiving, and continuing throughout the holidays, McCann is handling shifts at CBS-owned Fresh 102.7/WWFS.

She tells FishbowlNY that Fresh has been keeping her busy as a fill-in air personality at the Adult Contemporary station.

Fans of McCann can hear her all next week. The veteran jock is doing the midday shift (10 a.m. to 3 p.m.) Monday through Wednesday, followed by afternoons (3 p.m. to 8 p.m.) Thursday and New Years Eve. 

In an interview with FishbowlNY in November, McCann recalled how close she came to landing work in New York City. In 1995, she was hired as a part-time DJ at WAXQ/Q 104.3. Stuck in the middle of new management, McCann was never heard on the air at the station.
