WAAF Morning Man Greg Hill began his career in radio when a friend offered him a show at Lincoln Sudbury High School’s ten watt radio station, WYAJ. Hill was a high school senior at the time and his probation officer thought a shift at the radio station was a good idea, so he took the job.
From there, he was able to get an internship with Boston radio and TV legend John Garabedian, who offered the 18 year old Hill a job at his new independent Video Music TV station “V-66″ in Framingham. Hill was employed as a camp counselor at Camp Thoreau in Concord at the time but he took the job….and the pay cut!
Hill joined WAAF in 1986 as promotion coordinator and weekend overnight announcer. In 1989, there was a blind lottery, and he won the job of morning show host, which he has somehow been able to hold ever since.
In twenty years of being a morning show host, he says his favorite people to interview are John McCain and Lenny Clarke! Hill is known for the infamous “Secret Santa” promotion in which he went around Boston in a silver limousine, dressed in a Santa suit, handing out hundred dollar bills. The media picked up on the story and Hill finally gave a press conference to reveal his identity. “My favorite part of that promotion,” Hill says, “was when the Boston Herald hired Dr. Joyce Brothers to analyze ‘Secret Santa’s’ handwriting to see if they could figure out what he was like!”
Hill resides in his hometown of Stow, with his wife Jen, his daughter Julia and his son, Breese. He likes to play golf and write stupid jokes for bio’s.
