Zach

M-F 3p-7p, Sat. 6a-10a

Born and raised in Rochester, New York, Zach McHugh is now a South Florida resident and has taken over the role of Music Director and PM drive host at WSFS, 104.3 The Shark.

He started his radio career in 1997 as an intern at WRKT Rocket 101, in Erie, Pennsylvania. After a year and a half of weekend overnight shifts Zach got his first full time stint on air doing nights. In 2001 Zach was hired at WBNE/ WBNU The Bone in Wilmington, North Carolina where he eventually became PM drive host and Program Director. In spring of 2011, he stayed in Wilmington and signed on at WRMR Modern Rock 98.7 where he, among other things, hosted mornings and handled programming duties.

Thrilled to play a role in new music discovery, Zach can’t wait to share alternative music with the listeners of South Florida each and every day. He finds giving listeners access to the artists to be the most rewarding part of his job.

While music has always been a major passion in his life, Zach is also a devoted husband to his wife, Amy and proud father of three children, Thomas, Shelby and William. A major sports fan, he roots for the Carolina Panthers, Carolina Hurricanes, Yankees and Cubs. He is a ridiculous Pearl Jam fan, and also loves AWOLNATION and Cage The Elephant.
