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.
If your Sat evening plans might have included a holiday drinkie and curling up to watch NBC's annual telecast of IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE......well you might want to know NBC has changed your plans!
Yes, NBC has opted to return to the hills that rang with Carrie Underwood's Maria Von Trapp in their controvertial live production of, THE SOUND OF MUSIC.
Though it may have been savaged by many critics, the network believes that the huge audience the production garnered, has warranted another go ' round!
Although Carrie Underwood's portrayal of Maria von Trapp was slammed by critics and longtime "Sound Of Music" fans, we can't exactly blame NBC for wanting to re-air the special.
However, fear not....George Bailey, Clarence and Mr. Potter will return on December 20th.
Perhaps this beloved Christmas film offers even more holiday meaning by landing a little closer to Christmas Day!
Or merge the two?
And have Maria find out how her life touched so many others?
Either way...the two offerings may prove to be just two more of our "favorite things..."
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.
