Well-known L.V. deejay joins Penn's Peak Radio
RON GOWER/TIMES NEWS Kitty McVeigh of Bethlehem joins "The Doc" Layne Roberts as co-hosts of The Daily Bump and Grind on Penn's Peak Radio. The program airs from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. On Friday, a special program beginning at about 11:30 a.m. will have Roberts having heart tests live, on the air, at a local cariology center.
You might remember her from morning shenanigans on Cat Country 96 a few years back. Or maybe you had heard her when she was the voice on The Hawk oldies station from the Lehigh Valley.
Kitty McVeigh, who left the area for a job in Cincinnati, is back and joined "The Doc" Layne Roberts as a co-host on Penn Peak's daily radio program, "The Bump and Grind."
McVeigh, who resides in Bethlehem, is a 20-year veteran of radio.
Although she wasn't supposed to begin her new job until Monday, she and The Doc are already up to their morning fun this week.
Kitty and Doc have known each other for years. Both got their radio starts at local radio stations WLSH and WMGH.
Kitty grew up in Bucks County and graduated from Northampton Area Community College.
She said one of her plans on Penn's Peak Radio with Doc is "aggravate him."
"The cool thing with Doc," she said, "is we can say something's going to happen. But you don't know what's going to happen after that."
The Daily Bump and Grind is aired daily from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. It can be heard on Blue Ridge Cable TV Channel 80 and viewed live on Blue Ridge Cable TV 113 digital television. There also is a free app available for listening to the station.
To receive the app, contact Penn's Peak Radio at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Kitty said she's pleased to join Penn's Peak Radio, a Pencor company which has its station next to Penn's Peak concert hall in Jim Thorpe.
"I think this is the opportunity of a lifetime because it's not terrestrial radio. It's bigger," she said. "The potential for growth is amazing as far as audience and revenue."
The Doc said several special guests will be announced in the upcoming weeks.
He also said anyone who wants to showcase their special talent should contact him at the above e mail address.
Meanwhile, Roberts has a special program planned for tomorrow.
Beginning at about 11:30 a.m., Roberts will be at the local cardiology center where he will undergo heart tests - live on radio and TV. He said he will publicly announce the results, regardless what they are.
He said heart tests are important for everyone, especially if there is a history of heart disease in the family.
Kitty quipped, "We get to see if his heart is as black as Michelle (his wife) says it is."
