The Brooklyn-born Morrow has been an anchor of the New York airwaves for more than 40 years, and has remained one of its most popular personalities. He has been a trusted on-air host of popular hit music on New York radio stations WINS, WABC-AM and, until June 3, at WCBS-FM. Morrow has been inducted into the National Association of Broadcasters' Radio Hall of Fame, the Broadcasting & Cable Hall of Fame, the Radio Hall of Fame (Chicago) and was honored for his on-air work by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum.
