Bernard McGuirk Death Has Saddened His Fans All Around The World – How Did He Die?

Bernard McGuirk Dead

Just a few weeks shy of his 65th birthday, Bernard McGuirk, co-host of Bernie & Sid in the Morning, passed away Wednesday night from prostate cancer.

Since April 2018, McGuirk has co-hosted Sid Rosenberg’s Bernie & Sid in the Morning on WABC. 

On Tuesday, October 11, 2022, a special homage to McGuirk that includes recollections and ideas from the WABC team will air. 

John Catsimatidis, CEO of Red Apple, commented, “We are all grieved by Bernie’s passing. His knowledge and talent catapulted him to the top of New York morning radio. He was a true New Yorker. 

His listeners admired his extraordinary insights into local, national, and international events. All WABC and the fans all around the world will miss him. 

Chad Lopez, President of Red Apple Media and 77 WABC, stated in an email to the crew at 77 WABC late last night, “Bernie was not just half of Bernie and Sid in the Morning; Bernie was part of the fabric of WABC.”

With Bernie’s charming wit and insight, listeners from all over the world began their days, from sad events to everyday life in America. 

Not just at WABC, but also on the radio and in Americans’ hearts, his absence will leave a void. Bernie served as our brother, friend, mentor, and coworker. Bernie will be missed by all of us more than words can say.

Rosenberg affirmed, “Bernie was both my collaborator and my friend.” “I was lucky to be the guy next to him since he was always the smartest person in the room. I’m sure our listeners share my sorrow about the demise of radio and New York.”

McGuirk had been working for WABC as the Imus in the Morning Show’s Executive Producer since 2007. Since its later years at WNBC Radio, McGuirk has been a part of the Imus In the Morning programme. 

He moved to WFAN Radio in New York City in 1988 and stayed there until 2007 with Imus. McGuirk was a member of the Imus staff when the programme went nationwide in 1993.

McGuirk, who was born in the Bronx in New York City in 1957, attended the College of Mount St. Vincent. His wife Carol and their two children, Brendan and Melanie, are still alive.
