Gary McNamara launched his radio career at WJJL Niagara Falls, NY. From there he returned to his hometown of Buffalo, where he broadcast from WBEN. Following successful stints with WLS in Chicago and KXL in Portland, OR, Gary joined the roster at Dallas/Fort Worth’s WBAP in 2000. He served as an afternoon drive personality for the station before being paired with Eric Harley in 2005 to co-host The Midnight Radio Network, which had built a loyal following among late night radio listeners. In 2012, Eric and Gary became the hosts of Red Eye Radio, which airs on more than 200 affiliates.
Prior to entering the broadcasting world, Gary compiled a resume as colorful as his personality. From janitor to bill collector to assembly line machinist and stand-up comic, Gary’s “regular guy” persona make him one of the country’s most relatable hosts. Like the vast majority of his listeners, Gary believes that America doesn’t owe him a thing but he owes this country everything. His opinions on freedom, capitalism and the willingness of Americans to sacrifice for both are constant themes in his broadcasts.
When he’s not on the air, Gary enjoys being on the golf course or playing a game of pick-up basketball with his neighbors.
