Bill Keeler is a radio talk show host and television producer in Utica, NY. He began his radio career during his junior year in high school in 1981, as a disc jockey and play-by-play announcer for the Little Falls Mets radio broadcasts, a now dissolved Single A farm team of the New York Mets franchise. From 1989 until 2012, his controversial brand of ‘shock jock’ radio entertained audiences in Utica, Syracuse, Albany and Providence, Rhode Island with FM Talk. Since 2002, he has produced and appeared in several television programs including the stunt driven program, “The Keeler Show,” and a cooking program called, “Plate Night.” In 2009, he launched an online newspaper in the Utica area, Utica Daily News, which operated until 2012. In 2013, he made the transition into News/Talk radio as the morning show host on WIBX 950 AM in Utica, which is also simulcast each morning over WFXV Fox 33 TV. Keeler also owns a television production company, which produces several television programs and commercial campaigns (including political campaigns) that air throughout Upstate New York. He supports several charities including Toys for Tots, Operation Sunshine, and has been promoting testing for early detection of cancer since his own bout with the disease in 2018. He’s currently a board member with Mohawk Valley Crime Stoppers. He resides in the Utica area with his wife and family.
