Bruce Arnold

Mornings just wouldn’t be the same without Bruce’s voice coming into your home or car over WCCM, Lawrence.

 

Mention the name Bruce Arnold anywhere in the Merrimack Valley of Massachusetts (and New Hampshire) and chances are there’ll be instant recognition. After all, Bruce has been a part of life for residents there forty-five years. Mornings just wouldn’t be the same without Bruce’s voice coming into your home or car over WCCM, Lawrence. Actually this Lynn native began his broadcasting career in Conway N.H. and on Armed Forces Radio & TV where he produced TV and motion picture training films. In 1959, he joined WCCM and, except for occasional excursions to Boston to work at WHIL (now KISS 108) and WBZ radio, where he was the regular fill-in host for Larry Glick and Bob Raleigh, he’s been loyal to the Valley. He’s had an amazing run as a radio host and program manager. Over the years, Bruce has mentored many talented young personalities who’ve gone on to successful careers, among them Dan Roche, WBZ-TV sportscaster, and Steve Holman, longtime play-by-play announcer for the Atlanta Hawks. A masterful conversationalist, Bruce has hosted music programs, interview shows, political debates, special events, and has been the recipient of numerous awards including the Associated Press Radio Awards and the ACE Cable awards for his TV show, “Around Town with Bruce Arnold.”
