Joe Connolly’s daily CBS-Bloomberg Business Reports remain one of the most popular programming elements on WCBS Newsradio 880 today.
Joe’s reports, described as “business news for everyone” are heard weekday mornings on WCBS between 5 and 10am. Anyone can deliver the numbers but what makes Joe stand out, is his ability to distill financial information in a consumer friendly way. New York Magazine once praised Joe for turning “routine business stories” into “instructive stories”. It’s why WCBS listeners would agree “there’s nothing else like this on the radio.”
Joe first worked for WCBS shortly after college. He is a former sports features reporter and a former Press Secretary in the United States Congress. He has covered the White House, politics and the Olympics. He was assistant News Director at WTOP Newsradio in Washington and Managing Editor at the RKO Radio Networks in New York. Joe has won numerous awards from groups ranging from the New York Press Club to the New York Society of Certified Public Accountants for excellence in financial reporting. Through his daily Small Business Feature on WCBS, Joe Connolly has become “the voice of smaller businesses in New York."
