It was a stretch of nearly 25 years for Al Bernstein at WLTW/Lite-FM. Bernstein left the Clear Channel, perennial top-rated station, in 2007. Nearly five years later, he’s resurfaced at WCBS-FM in a part-time role. After a brief training appearance this week, his first official shift is Sunday afternoon.
WCBS-FM has been in the market for another personality since veteran jock Bob Shannon went on medical leave before the start of the year. While Shannon convalesces, evening and overnight DJs Ron Parker and Joe Causi have rotated on the midday shift.
With more than three decades in New York radio, Bernstein has also been heard on WNEW-FM, WBLS, WYNY, and WKHK (the Country precursor of WLTW).
A native of Westchester, Bernstein’s distinctive sound has led to doing voice-over work on an assortment of radio and TV commercials.
