Gary Cee is the Pocono 103.1 morning host. Gary is joined by Mike Spiel for weather and Alisa Zee for news. Gary is a native of Patchogue, Long Island. His first radio job was at WRCN in Riverhead, which led to a full-time gig at WDRE in Garden City where he hosted just about every air shift. In 1996, WDRE reverted to its old call letters, WLIR. Gary stuck around, and in 1998, Gary became Program Director.
In 2003, WLIR was sold to Univision. Gary packed his bags and moved up to the Hudson Valley to become Program Director and Afternoon Host at rock powerhouse WPDH. In July of 2012, Gary moved to northern New Jersey and became Senior VP of Programming for iheartMedia in Sussex where he also served as Program Director and Afternoon Host of WNNJ. He stayed there for nearly eight years. On October 13, 2020, Gary became Morning Host at Pocono 96.7, which in March, 2023 became Pocono 103.1.
Prior to his radio career, Gary was the Managing Editor of Circus, America’s Hard-Rock Magazine. His book, ‘Classic Rock,’ is still available through online retailers. In his not-so-spare time, Gary constructs crossword puzzles for The New York Times and the Wall Street Journal. Email Gary at GaryCee@7mountainsmedia.com.
Bill Trifiro is Pocono 96.7’s Morning News Anchor. Bill started in radio as a disc jockey in the mid 90’s, but he was bit by the news bug in 1996 in Atlanta and has been a journalist ever since. After growing weary of hopping from radio station to radio station in top 20 markets, Bill and his wife decided that it was better late than never to start a family. That’s when he took his limited talents to the mountains to continue his radio news broadcast career. When he is not in front of a computer or interviewing people on the phone, Bill likes hiking with his family and dogs. Bill is the quintessential boring news guy… and very happily so.
I was born and raised in Poughkeepsie, New York, which is why I root for the Mets, Jets, Knicks, and Rangers. I graduated from Arlington High School.
I have been married to my wife Tara since 1993. We have a daughter and son who presently are both in college. Tara is a first-grade teacher.
I attended Saint Louis University where I earned a B.S. in Meteorology. My college professors nominated me to Who’s Who Among American Colleges and Universities for my leadership. I was president of the student chapter of the American Meteorological Society in my senior year.
My first forecasting job after graduation was with Central Weather Service, located in Illinois. After a year there, I left Central Weather to start Omni Weather. I left Omni when Tara and I got married and later began my present company, Continental Weather Service, in 1994. I have been forecasting and broadcasting since 1980 and I’ve provided weather on various stations in the Hudson Valley since the early 80s.
