About BRAD PERRY
Brad Perry has become an integral part of the Phoenix media scene. While he has a long history in broadcast television, Brad is best known as the host of AZTV Channel 7’s “Arizona Daily Mix.”
Brad Perry is no stranger to the entertainment world. He has been waking people up for over 20 years on morning television. In 1998, he was given an opportunity at KTVK Arizona’s Family Channel on “Good Morning Arizona” he could not refuse. After 9 years with the successful morning show, Brad had the opportunity to wake up San Diego on KUSI’s “Good Morning San Diego” for over 7 years.
Brad is inspired by his two beautiful children. His daughter is living in Chicago and following in her father’s stage footsteps with her own stand-up style, and has become an alumnus of Second City’s writing program. His son is also working in entertainment as an actor/writer/ director in Los Angeles. Brad Perry’s drive is to inspire and guide others to take a chance and be the best they can be. After his hosting stints in several other cities, Brad is excited to be back in the Phoenix community waking us all up each morning on AZTV7.
About PAT McMAHON
If anyone ever told Pat McMahon “You simply can’t do it all,” Pat was clearly not listening. Pat’s schedule includes regular appearances on AZTV7 mornings and his position as Director of Public Affairs for News 92.3 KTAR. But that’s not all…there are the daily radio commentaries during “Arizona’s Morning News,” the weekly “McMahon Group” and “The God Show” (both of those– on 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 Arizona Daily Mix, only on AZTV7.
