JOHN FINN

A proud graduate of Williamsport Area High School. While in the broadcasting program at the Williamsport Area Community College, John went to school with such radio luminaries as Ted Minier and Jeff Lynn. Also, John worked for radio stations, such as; The Super K, The Foxx, J-104, Oldies 97.7, Eagle 108 and Hot 93.3.
As News Director of Backyard Broadcasting for about 13 years now, John makes sure the Susquehanna Valley knows what is going on. He is responsible for more than 30 different newscasts per day on five different radio stations. Also the play-by-play man for High School Football, on OldieZ 93 and the public service director for Backyard Broadcasting as well.
 
John has been working mid-days on WZXR for almost 14 years and still gets excited to go in and Rock the Susquehanna Valley each day and interact with the listeners. He loves to meet with them when out doing various station appearances whether it is a live remote, hanging out downtown on the Fourth of July, hitting the streets during Mardi Gras, or jumping in the river in the middle of winter for the Polar Plunge fund raiser.
 
When he’s not working for the radio station, he loves to hang out with my wife Beth, catch dinner with his daughter Tricia and her husband Josh, go out and listen to local bands, and find some time to stop by area wedding receptions to play a little music and get people up to dance. Oh yeah, he enjoys sleeping, too...
He hopes to keep rocking the Susquehanna Valley for years to come!
