NEW ROCHELLE, NY — We are pleased to announce the selection of David O’Shaughnessy as the Grand Marshall of the 51st New Rochelle, Valenti Family, Thanksgiving Parade. As the president of Whitney Media, the parent of WVOX and WVIP Radio stations, as well as publishing and consulting interests, David heads one of New Rochelle’s iconic community treasures.
The flagship WVOX AM 1460 is the nation’s best known community radio station, and has served as a lynchpin of social, political and artistic discourse for over 50 years. Founded by chairman, William O’Shaughnessy, the station has provided a beacon of free speech to New Rochelle and surrounding communities that hardly exists anyplace else. David proudly carries on the family tradition, and we are proud to that he has agreed to serve as Grand Marshall.
The parade offers the city a chance to say thank you to David and his family, and salute the city institution he leads.
