Roy Gregory has been the host of the morning show since January of 1992. A native of the Chicago Suburb of Hinsdale, Roy has worked in the radio business for over 30 years doing everything from sportscasting to managing radio stations.

You’ll find a good dose of humor every morning at 7:15 with “Quarter After Laughter” featuring top comedians. Test your knowledge of strange, and in many cases useless trivia with the “Morning Mind Twister” at 8:15.

Roy and morning co-host Carol McGowan get a kick out of talking to you, so give them a call at 1-888-254-9830. They also keep you informed with local traffic reports every 10 minutes and news updates every hour that concentrate primarily on stories from Will, Grundy, Kendall, DuPage and Kane Counties.

Roy’s a huge Chicago Cubs fan, “When I die, throw a big party for my friends, then spread my ashes in the bleachers at Wrigley Field.”

Carol lives in the southwest suburbs and attended Argo Community High School which is where she got interested in radio.

After working with various stations in Chicago for ten years with Shadow Broadcast Services, Carol joined Roy in January of 2001 working exclusively for WCCQ.
