Galuski Battling Cancer
Written by Josh Cradduck   
Tuesday, 21 October 2014 11:38
UPDATE: Many have been wondering where Joe Galuski, a staple of 570 WSYR's programming lineup has been for the past 2 months. This morning, Galuski appeared on his own show with guest host Mark Wainwright and told his viewers that he has be...en battling cancer. The CNY broadcasting legend had previously dealt with Non-Hodgkin lymphoma in 1992, he said. However, this re-occurence is more serious. Galuski thanked his many listeners for sending cards and well wishes, but admitted the listeners didn't know what they were sending cards for, as his absense had not been explained by WSYR radio. He decided to put speculation to rest. He will continue with chemotheraphy, he says. Joe has been in the business since 1975 and has hosted 570's morning show since 1998. The Press Club wishes Joe all the best!

Here is a brief look at some of the Comings and Goings from early-summer so far:




Congratulations to CNY-Central reporter KATIE CORRADO, who just headed to Connecticut to become FOXCT's weekend morning anchor/weekday morning reporter. Katie has been with the Syracuse NBC affiliate for two years. 


A big congratulations to CNY Central's BRIAN ERB, who has after 42 years at the station. Brian started at the NBC affiliate in November of 1971, making him one of the longest-serving photographers in the Syracuse market. We're told his retirement plans are to “kick back and enjoy his grandchildren.” Brian has been honored with dozens of awards over the years, including SPC Career Achievement in 2002.


Another veteran is leaving the media scene in CNY.  JOHN MARIANI has retired from the Post-Standard/Syracuse Media Group after a 32-year career. His long stint at the paper included reporting on government, neighborhoods, politics and business, as well as editing NewsLine.
