Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on the death of Bernie McGuirk:
The death of WABC radio host Bernie McGuirk comes as a shock, notwithstanding the fact his health condition was known to be perilous. The show that he co-hosted with Sid Rosenberg—“Bernie and Sid in the Morning”—brought joy to the lives of their fans for many years. He died of prostate cancer at the age of 64 on October 5.
Of all the TV and radio shows I have done, none has been more fun than my time spent with Bernie and Sid. They are two of the greatest guys in the business. Smart, quick, courageous and humorous—it is no surprise their show was the number-one rated morning show in the New York area.
Bernie was a class act. May he rest in peace.
