Bo Sullivan first began his long career at WHYN radio in 1990 as a sports talk show producer. Bo then moved on to become the host of that sports talk show. In 1993, Bo became the sports anchor and co-host for the WHYN morning show. After a few hiatuses, both planned and unplanned, Bo came back to stay in 1996 as the morning show sports anchor, producer, and co-host.
Born and raised in Westfield, he's now raising his own family there. He lives with his wife Kris and daughters Leighanne and Shannon. When Bo was growing up, his father Richard Sullivan was superintendent of schools in two local communities. Politics runs in the family. Brother Brian is a Westfield city councilor and brother Rick is the city's seven term mayor. Besides transporting his children to various activities including CCD and swimming lessons, he coaches both daughters in three different sports. He also works as a part-time political consultant. In his scarce spare time, Bo likes to golf and is a frequent visitor to the Connecticut casinos.
What does Bo like most about his position at WHYN? For one, he's a big fan of waking at 3:30 a.m. Monday through Friday. He also enjoys meeting the many loyal listeners to the show. His lifelong ambition is to open a sports bar and play Texas Hold 'em every day of his life.
So they caught up with Julie Andrews, and couldn’t reist asking her if she had seent he NBC re do of the SOUND OF MUSIC, her starring film role…
The ever classy Ms. Andrews replied,
"Alas, I did not (see it). I had a speaking engagement and I couldn't. But my kids did record it. I'll get around to it."
She attended the U.S. premiere Monday night of "Saving Mr. Banks," which depicts the battle between P.L. Travers, author of the "Mary Poppins" novels, and Walt Disney, who worked for decades to persuade the writer that the "Poppins" tales would make a fine film.
In "Banks," Travers (played by Emma Thompson) goes on a tirade about the hiring of Dick Van Dyke.
However, Dick Van Dyke remembers some additional moments regarding this;
On the arrivals line, Van Dyke revealed an additional Travers tidbit that isn't in the movie.
"Well, she wasn't thrilled with Julie, either," he said. "She wanted a dumpy little Mary Poppins. She didn't want a pretty girl. So, she didn't like either one of us."
So…was Julie aware of this sentiment?
"I had heard rumors, no doubt about it," the actress said, adding that she and Travers became friendly and later wrote letters to each other.
"She was a tough lady," "But there was a kind of sadness underneath all that toughness, too."
All these years later, Dick Van Dyke hasn’t forgotten……..
"Walt told me when the premiere was over, she met him in the lobby and said, 'The animation has to go, Walt' ... and Walt said, 'The boat sailed, Mary,'" recalled Van Dyke.
First I would like to say that I love your tribute to Joe Napolitan and I love to hear Tony’s beautiful words for him. Also, I am deeply saddened by the passing of the awesome Nelson Mandela. God Bless him.
Thank you so much for your morning show because my birthday is ( ) and I will be 65. As I look into my Medicare options as an unemployed person that can not collect Social Security for another year, I am deeply confused and frightened for my future. I have a small 401K/IRA from may last job with ( ) which was eliminated in 2012. It is enough so that I cannot get assistance of any kind but not enough to last more than a year or two if I have to subsidize my own health insurance. I try to take one day at a time and one birthday at a time but this really scares me.
I can’t get any assistance of any kind in terms of fuel assistance, food stamps or EFT. (I don’t even know what EFT covers.) Anywhoooo! I am told that I have to spend my retirement account down to $7000. 00 before I can get any assistance. Well my house is paid for in full and I have worked since I was 14 years old. Soooo my plan is to take an extended trip to Europe for several months and spend down the not too big IRA instead of spending the next several years paying MORE money into the government system to pay for what I could if I was poorer by a few thousand dollars. I think the government has enough money and in the last 51 years of paying taxes I have paid into enough government programs for people that are cheating the system. Now that I know what I am facing, I am starting to get P.O.’d… Trying to keep this all family friendly. LOL
Thanks for covering these topics on your show. Once again, I appreciate being able to wakeup to a good laugh because if I have to attack the negatives of the day, I like to do it with a smile on my face.
You guys are the absolute best.!
