A proud Jersey Girl to the core, Mary Walter’s radio career began in her home state when she entered a radio station contest and won the Grand Prize – Host of the station’s evening “Passion Phones” show! She spent five years hosting that program on WKXW (New Jersey 101.5), the powerful talk station which covered the entire area between New York and Philadelphia.
Her next stop was at WCTC, another New Jersey station, where she hosted the morning show for four years as “Mary In The Morning”. She was the first woman to anchor a morning radio program in the state.
And then it was back to New Jersey 101.5 for another five year stint!
By 2006, Mary had shifted to Fox News Radio, where she was the prime fill in host for several programs, including those hosted by Brian Kilmeade and John Gibson. She also did regular pundit appearances on TV’s Fox News Channel. Additionally, she currently handles occasional guest hosting stints at Sirius XM’s Patriot channel.
Prior to joining WMAL’s “Mornings On The Mall” – and in addition to her Fox and Sirius hosting assignments – Mary has been hosting a five night per week show on powerhouse talker WHAS/Louisville, and she’s served as the regular fill in on The Chris Plante Show on WMAL.
Mary’s energy, wit, and- yes, snark are a bright addition to “Mornings On The Mall”. The show continues to weave the very best expert guests, listener interaction, host perspective, and vital morning service elements into the perfect blend for WMAL listeners. We like to say that our listeners are the most knowledgeable about the key topics of the day when they get to work.
Vince Coglianese hosts WMAL’s “Mornings on the Mall” every morning from 5-9 AM.
As a journalist and longtime listener, Vince knows firsthand how essential it is to start the day with “Mornings on the Mall.” It’s a legendary show with an important mission — engage, amuse and inform Washington, D.C.
In addition to hosting Washington’s must-hear morning show, Vince is the editorial director and former editor-in-chief of The Daily Caller. Vince has regularly appeared as a guest on the Fox News Channel, CNN, MSNBC, the Fox Business Network and CNBC.
In 2010, Vince became an editor at the fledgling Daily Caller, where he’s reported on and edited thousands of national news stories. Vince was named The Daily Caller’s editor-in-chief in 2016, replacing site founder Tucker Carlson in the role. Under Vince’s leadership, the news site grew to approximately 20 million unique readers and 100 million page views per month. Upon assuming the host role for “Mornings on the Mall,” Vince transitioned to become The Daily Caller’s editorial director.
Vince has worked in media for 14 years. A longtime talk radio fan, Vince’s first foray into the medium came when — as a high school senior — he joined a weekly panel show on “The Talk Station,” WTKF and WJNC, in Morehead City, N.C. Vince also served as the sports anchor for a television program airing on Camp Lejeune, NC’s LCTV-10.
After graduating from DeSales University with a degree in Political Science, Vince joined “The Talk Station” full-time as a host and station manager for the company’s Jacksonville, N.C. presence. While in North Carolina, he also served as the web editor for CarolinaCoastOnline.com.
Vince enjoys Italian food, skeet shooting, and untangling his fly-fishing line from every single tree.
