About the Hosts



If anyone ever told Pat McMahon "You simply can't do it all", Pat was clearly not listening. Pat's day includes his hour live on AZTV7/Cable 13 each morning and his exciting new position as Director of Public Affairs for News 92.3 KTAR. But that's not all...there are the daily commentaries during "Arizona's Morning News",  the weekly "McMahon Group" and "The God Show" (both Sundays). 

His 30 years on the long-running, groundbreaking children's show Wallace and Ladmo are just part of Pat's remarkable resume', which includes acting, producing, writing and recording. Pat's professional and personal contributions have been richly rewarded with 7 Emmy awards, major national and international radio awards, numerous civic, educational and humanitarian awards.

The child who once traveled the world with his show-business family is now the holder of the Arizona Broadcasters Lifetime Achievement Award and his bronze likeness hangs alongside Hugh Downs and Leslie Nielsen in the rotunda of the Herberger Theater.

The local theater community has named the McMahons "The First Family of Arizona Entertainment" but Pat, no doubt, feels most comfortable simply being thought of as "Arizona's Own" on The McMahon Group, weekdays from 9-10 AM exclusively on AZTV7/Cable 13.
