TUNE IN WEEKDAYS FROM 5AM TO 9AM
Wake-up with America’s First News — Host Gordon Deal goes beyond the headlines with the day’s first look at news and business from the U.S. and around the world; bringing a lively blend of intelligent information, humor, and expert analysis to morning radio. The This Morning news team features reports with News Anchor Jennifer Kushinka and Producer Mike Gavin.
Gordon’s understanding of what listeners need to know and the questions they would like answered are a perfect match for the morning show. Before taking the helm at The Wall Street Journal This Morning in 2005, Gordon was well-known to New York City radio listeners, having worked at both WINS-AM and WCBS-AM where he honed his writing skills and developed his distinctive on-air reporting style.
He also served as a New York City bureau chief for Metro Networks where his reports aired on WOR-AM and WABC-AM. Gordon began his career in radio as a play-by-play sports announcer for Rutgers University. His first radio job was at his hometown radio station, WCTC 1450AM, New Brunswick, NJ. He grew up in East Brunswick, attended Rutgers (New Brunswick), high school at St. Joseph’s (Metuchen), and also lived in Edison, Spotswood, North Brunswick, Monroe and South Brunswick. He now lives in Jamesburg with his wife Kelly and their two children.
Gordon also finds time to work as the Public Address announcer for New York Giants football and Army football. His hobbies include fishing, whitewater rafting, and coaching soccer.
