Q&A with Morning Drive Anchor Lee Harris

By Madison Fernandez and Rachel Krevans 

1010 WINS gives you all news, all the time. That takes a lot of commitment from our reporters and anchors. We sat down with some of the most recognizable and trusted voices from the station to learn a bit more about what they do behind the mic.

Lee Harris has been working in radio in one form or another since he was 17.

Since joining the station in 1993, he’s been anchoring Morning Drive and creating technology for the station that allows the anchors and reporters to do their jobs more efficiently.

When he’s not working … well, he likes to do more work.

“I’m a bit of a weirdo in that department. Most of my time off is spent on business trips to either other cities or other countries and trying to sell them some of the technology I've created," he said. “I actually have a great deal of fun doing that.”

He also said that he likes to road bike, which he tried to incorporate into his WINS work.

“For a while I was doing a series of videos where I would take a tour of Coney Island on the bike with a GoPro on my head, cut that up, narrate it, score it, everything else, and make a big production number out of it,” he said. “But the sales department sadly couldn't sell it, so because it can't be paid for, I just go on the bike without the video.”
