Ken McGrail has been named the new Director of Underwriting at Martha’s Vineyard based WMVY 88.7 FM. The listener and local business supported station also serves much of The Cape and Newport, RI with its greatly expanded FM signals at 88.7 and 96.5. McGrail will focus on raising support from local and national businesses for the non-profit, independent station.

“Ken has all the right elements to help our Underwriting department achieve its true potential,” said PJ Finn, Executive Director at Friends of mvyradio.  “His knowledge of radio, his background in Sales, and his understanding of the Cape & Island market, make him an outstanding addition to our team.  We’re glad we could convince him to come back to radio!”

“I’m thrilled to be joining the MVY team.  The passion of the entire staff is exhilarating and the on air product is by far the best on the entire Cape and Islands radio dial,” said McGrail, adding, “I look forward to bringing my energy and expertise to helping them make their 36th year on air the best ever.”

For the last decade, McGrail worked for Spade Technology in Mansfield, Massachusetts, an IT support services firm.  Prior to that, he had a 25 year career in radio, working for stations in New York, Maine, and on Cape Cod.

McGrail was born in central Massachusetts and attended Syracuse University.  He lives in New Seabury with his wife Beth.
