Comedy Night Honoree

Patricia McCann, Radio Personality and CHC Board Member

Patricia McCann has been a broadcast personality on New York radio for 42 years. She is third generation of a radio dynasty begun by her grandfather Alfred W. McCann, an investigative journalist who fought corruption in the food industry. In 1927 he became broadcaster, hosting the McCann Pure Food Hour on WOR Radio, accompanied by announcer John B. Gambling. Radio was in its infancy.

After her grandfather’s death in 1931, Alfred W. McCann Jr., his wife Dora continued the broadcast on WOR. “The McCanns at Home” was the first “food show” in the media, the focus no longer on purity, but the romance of food.

In 1968, WOR auditioned Patricia for her own broadcast. She would eventually take over the family program when they retired, pulling it in a new direction, covering social, domestic issues and taking the program out of the studio to Russia, Egypt, Japan, France, Ireland.

Patricia broadcast 13 more years on WOR before moving to WMCA to host a 2-hour daily broadcast. When the station was sold, she got a Masters in Gerontology and became an advocate for the elderly in nursing and adult homes with the federally mandated Ombudsman Program.

At the same time, she became the first Personality Commercial Spokesperson on WINS Radio—the country’s premier news station. She continued the family tradition of integrity, credibility. The station gave her right of refusal. She researched and wrote her own commercials. AT&T would seek her endorsement 12 years running.

When she retired in 2020, Patricia was content, if not tickled—the McCann name endured on New York radio for 94 years.

Patricia is a member of Les Dames d’Escoffier, the country’s first association of professional women in food and wine; Board member, The Center for Hearing and Communication; former President, Manhattanville College Alumni Board; former Board member, the New York Foundation for Senior Citizens.
