Bill Colley spent 17 years as a broadcast journalist in radio and television. In 2004 he embarked on a talk radio career and joined WGMD in 2007. Bill grew up in a small dairy farming community where a quarter of the population was Amish. The simple values of another era shaped Bill’s views about the wider world. A self-described information junkie, Bill listens primarily to talk radio, reads several newspapers daily and writes for several national Internet publications. He enjoys the Delmarva weather, where winters are mild and summers are cooled by ocean breezes. He spends most of his spare time traveling and visiting the historic sites of the Mid-Atlantic Region.
