Joe Benigno will return to WFAN airwaves on Thursday.
Brandon Tierney, co-host of WFAN noon program “Tiki & Tierney” with Tiki Barber, introduced the New York sports activities radio legend might be on tomorrow’s program.
“When things slow down (Giants!), going to mix in some of the former midday voices and pay homage to the history of @WFAN660: Joe B, Schmooze, Jody Mac, Russ Salzberg, Sid [Rosenberg], Dave Sims, Suzyn [Waldman],” Tierney tweeted.
“Not sure if everyone comes on, but going to reach out and look to make it happen.”
Tierney quickly up to date that Benigno has accepted the invitation.
Benigno, a die laborious Mets and Jets fan, concluded a 25-year run at WFAN in November of 2020. He retired and moved to Florida.
He had spent about 13 years with Evan Roberts — most of it throughout middays, earlier than a brief stint in afternoon drive — after doing over a decade in overnights.
Before he was a number on WFAN, Benigno was a caller — Joe in Saddle River. He gained a contest to guest-host a shot for an hour, finally grew to become a fill-in host and wound up taking on overnights for Steve Somers — who was shifting to a daytime present — in 1995.
