Craig Collins


It’s the new guy! Craig Collins on-the-air 3 p.m.-6 p.m.

Craig Collins has been working at radio stations since he was 19.
He was a co-host at ESPN in South Bend, a podcaster/producer/host for WGN Radio,
and fill-in host/producer for a couple of nationally syndicated political talk shows.

Craig loves the Yankees and seems to think he works for the team
(or he at least emails Brian Cashman ideas often.)

Craig is also on a personal quest to make every item in his home “smart.” His wife Betty isn’t exactly thrilled with this plan. The Craig Collins Show will be a collection of the crazy news stories he finds each day, a few interviews with local newsmakers and a whole lot of fun!

Join Craig and newsman Neil Doyle every weekday from 3-6 PM.

At other times, they cause us to shake our heads and wonder why. The McLean…
