WMSA's Sandy Cook Celebrates 40 Years On The Air

Tools

It's a big celebration for WMSA radio announcer Sandy Cook, who is marking his 40th year on the air.

He was congratulated by friends and other well-wishers Tuesday morning in Massena.

Cook began his broadcasting career at the Massena AM station in 1973, fresh out of high school.

Broadcasting was something he says he always wanted to do.

Among those who dropped by to offer their congratulations were former news director and now St. Lawrence County Administrator Karen St. Hilaire and Massena Police Chief Timmy Currier.

Cook says he held several positions during his tenure with the station and has been hosting the morning "Extravaganza" program since 1982.

"It's been a blast. It's just been an awesome ride and I'm hopeful it will continue as long as possible," he said.

Mayor Jim Hidy also issued a proclamation declaring Tuesday "Sandy Cook Day" in the village in honor of Sandy's milestone.
