The WNAC morning show featured Roy (Leonard), Jim (Dixon), and Gus (Saunders). The show was called (naturally) Roy, Jim, and Gus. It ended when General Tire flipped WNAC to WRKO. I'm guessing at the year: 1962 maybe.

  Roy Leonard who was a rising star at first WHDH and then WNAC was suddenly
  out of a job in 1967 when WNAC-AM became WRKO. He was hired by WGN Chicago
  and became a superstar.

  He has started a blog and he has posted pictures of his WKOX, WHDH and WNAC

  He was Channel 5's first 11 PM newscaster,


  Roy with Ronald Reagan at WKOX


  Roy at Channel 7


  Here is one for Donna - Roy with other WNAC jocks in the 60's - who are the
  others?     I think Dave Rodman and Jim Dixon are in the pic.
