Audacy has announced contract extensions with Karen Carson, Johnny Mingione and Anthony Malerba – co-hosts of “Karen Carson in the Morning” on NEW 102.7 (WNEW-FM) in New York. The trio can be heard weekdays from 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. ET.
Karen Carson is a born and bred Jersey girl, on the air in New York City. She’s a mom who makes her way through wrestling matches, soccer, and dance, while entertaining listeners on their morning drive. As a former triathlete, she’s lucky if she can get a three-mile walk into her busy schedule these days, but she loves being on the radio and sharing her relatable life stories as she has since 1996. Carson has also previously co-hosted at WLTW Lite FM’s “Karen and Christine in the Morning.” Her career includes middays at KOST FM in Los Angeles, as well WAXQ and WKTU. She’s a graduate of Monmouth University and found the beginning of her career at WJLK in Asbury Park, NJ.
As a native New Yorker, born and raised on Long Island, Johnny Mingione aka Johnny Drama, started his career as an intern/sandwich-getter for Jimmy Fallon and “Regis & Kelly.” From there, he created viral videos and parody songs, achieving more than 50 MILLION views! Mingione is also in a punk rock band and loves playing music with instruments ranging from the piano to the ukulele and more.
Mingione, the award-winning filmmaker, band member, and radio star, has appeared in sketches with a vast number of notable entertainers, such as Jenna Fischer, John Mayer, Wayne Brady, Cheech & Chong, Tom Green, Fall Out Boy and George Lopez, just to name a few!
“Intern Anthony” Malerba is a Brooklyn-born on-air talent and executive producer for WNEW’s “Karen Carson In The Morning.” You’ll quickly find out that Intern Anthony is no intern at all! You can hear him every morning doing dozens of impressions, including Mrs. Doubtfire, Peter Griffin, Trump and Obama. His love for Brooklyn is almost as enormous as his love for fresh mozzarella, his girlfriend, his family and his car. From WWE to Apple, Intern Anthony shows passion for the things he loves the most.
