About Gary -
Hello. My name is Gary Nease, the News and Sports Director at WHDL and WPIG. I have worked in Olean radio since 1974, the last 16 years at WHDL and WPIG. During the last 36 years I have lost a lot of hair and most of my marbles, but have been able to pull things together by 4:30am to try to make everyone's mornings a little bit brighter. I have been blessed with great family and friends, both in and out of radio. I look forward to meeting many new friends as I try to figure out what I want to do when I grow up!
