The legendary radio commentator hosted the weekday WABC show Bernie & Sid in the Morning with co-host Sid Rosenberg.

Prior to his 77 WABC days, however, McGuirk spent a decade as an itinerant reporter for MSNBC TV’s Imus in the Morning — a nationally syndicated show that aired from 1993 to 2018.

The show, hosted by Dom Imus, was one of the most listened-to radio talk shows in the United States, with approximately 1.6 million listeners per week, according to Arbitron analysis.

In 2007, He and the late radio icon Imus moved their show to 77 WABC when McGuirk took the helm as executive producer.

McGuirk’s career continued to soar as he became a regular guest on Fox News shows such as Outnumbered, Hannity, Watters’ World and The Factor.

In 2018 he teamed up with fellow radio host Sid Rosenberg to debut a new show on 77 WABC, Berni & Sid in the Morning.

The show quickly became a success, eventually moving its 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. radio slot to the morning drive times.

McGuirk’s longtime Airwave co-host mourned his death on Wednesday and said he was “happy to be the guy next to him.”

“Bernie was my partner and my friend. He was always the smartest guy in the room and I was lucky to be the guy next to him,” Rosenberg said.

“I know our listeners mourn with me the loss of radio and New York.”

In an email to employees, Chad Lopez, president of Red Apple Media and 77 WABC, described McGuirk as “part of the WABC structure.”

“Bernie wasn’t just half of Bernie and Sid in the morning; Bernie was part of the fabric of WABC,” Lopez said in a statement.

“Listeners from around the world began their days with Bernie’s charismatic wit and insight, from tragic events to everyday American life.

“His absence will not only leave a hole at WABC, but also on the airwaves and in America’s heart.
