Born in Raleigh and raised in Wilson, Traffic Reporter Patrick McMahon discovered his love for radio while broadcasting on East Carolina University’s WZMB 91.3 FM. Upon graduation, he worked in New Bern and Raleigh where you may have heard him use the name “Crash” on the air. After a time away from radio, he just had to return to the air, first with Capitol Broadcasting sports station 99.9 The Fan before ultimately joining the Mix 101.5 family.
Patrick lives close to downtown Raleigh in the same house his grandparents purchased in the 50s (nearly across the street from the hospital he was born in, Wake Med on New Bern Avenue.) He has a soft spot in his heart for educators: his mother is a retired teacher/administrator, his dad is a retired system superintendent, and his sister is a current Wake County principal.
A newlywed who tied the knot in November of 2015, Patrick enjoys taking weekend roadtrips with his bride Angela, and much to their delight, recently made a new addition to the family, a beloved Pit Bull named Baloo, who was adopted from the Wake County Animal Center. Baloo was a four year old when they found him recovering from surgery. Love at first sight, Baloo joined their cats Stella and Chester to round out their new family.
