Binghamton native Maggie Gray, who co-hosts a nationally-syndicated sports radio program, has fond memories of growing up in Broome County.

Gray returned to Binghamton Friday to speak about her career in broadcasting and how she got her start.

Gray is a 2001 graduated of Binghamton High School. During an interview on WNBF Radio's Binghamton Now program, she recalled some of the experience she gained as an intern for the station.

Gray said some of the opportunities she had with WNBF and the BC Icemen hockey team helped her gain knowledge of the business. She said working with people like Roger Neel and Jason Weinstein helped her "get a small taste" of sports broadcasting.

Gray now co-hosts the Maggie and Perloff program, which is heard weekday mornings on the Infinity Sports Network, which had been known as CBS Sports Radio until April.

Gray said she and her on-air partner Andrew Perloff "do it all." She said "we talk about every sport - we try to have a lot of fun" while keeping it "very light."

Gray views it as a "dream job." She said "it's better than I could have ever imagined."

Gray spoke at a downtown event sponsored by the Binghamton University Forum.
