Hosting The Hosts: Fred Migliore

Oct 30, 2013

Welcome to the first edition of Hosting the Hosts! In each of these web exclusives, you'll read stories told a little by station intern Drew Lacy and a lot by the hosts of your favorite shows. In this first edition, learn more about FM Odyssey host Fred Milgiore and how his show became the fan favorite that is is today.

Fred Migliore arrived in the studio for our interview barefoot, flanked by a golden retriever named Zero who announced the pair’s entrance with a booming bark.

“It’s kind of like putting the vacuum cleaner on in reverse,” Fred said, describing the experience of turning the tables to be the interviewee rather than interviewer. Zero circled below the desk with the occasional huff or sigh to request a scratch behind the ears.

Special thanks goes to Steve B. in Connecticut for all the great artwork, he listens on line and is a long time member of WFIT!

WFIT made its special ‘Oktoberfund’ Kolsch beer at Brock’s Home Brew Supply for the 2013 Fall Fund Drive.

Thousands of concerned citizens gathered this past Saturday to show their support for the Indian River Lagoon. Since January of this year, hundreds of manatees, dolphins and brown pelicans have died. Experts don’t know the exact cause of the die off but suspect it is a combination of numerous factors including but not limited to; fertilizer runoff, septic tanks, algae blooms, climate change and more.

 

People gathered at eight different locations all along the Indian River Lagoon, which runs 156 miles and through 6 counties on the east coast of Florida. The event was part of the National Estuaries day celebration. Hands Across the Lagoon was organized to call attention to the toxic waters and declining state of our lagoon and to ask local leaders to make the health of the lagoon a top priority.

Understanding the complex and emotional issue of free-roaming and feral cats is essential to combating cat overpopulation.

The Indian River Lagoon provides livelihood and recreation for thousands along the East Coast of Florida. Recent die offs of marine mammals have caused concern for experts and identifying the issues affecting the Lagoon have proven to be difficult. As with any ecosystem with a multitude of interactions between the species, the cause and effect are complex and interconnected.
