Life in radio

Jimmy McKay has had a non-traditional career path to the field of Physical Therapy.

While finishing his degree in Journalism & Mass Communication at St. Bonaventure University he worked as an intern at some of most well known radio stations in the country. Most notably, 92.3 K-Rock, which featured the biggest name in radio, Howard Stern.  

After a 15-year career both on-air & as a program director at WRRV & WBSX managing the station, staff & marketing, he switched gears and went back to school for a degree in Physical Therapy. 


PT Education

As a Doctoral student at Marymount University, he merged his former & future careers together in the form of a podcast.

He created PT Pintcast

(PT + Pint of Beer + Broadcast = PT Pintcast)  

A podcast where he interviews amazing Physical Therapists from around the world over a beer and then shares the conversations for free on iTunes, Google Play & Stitcher Radio.
