The Weekend with Joe Pags

  • Sunday 2:00pm-5:00pm

Joe Pagliarulo, or “Pags” as he’s affectionately known, started his broadcasting career in 1989 in Palm Beach County, Florida.  He later spent several years as a TV news anchor in Michigan and New York, where he was honored with multiple Association of Broadcasting and AP awards for excellence in journalism as a news anchor, reporter, producer, and talk show host.

Pags grew up listening to talk radio and fell in love with the medium.  After several successful years in television, Pags made his way to the radio airwaves to pursue his passion. Today, he brings his common sense, logical approach to the biggest stages in the industry.  As host of The Weekend, Pags offers listeners a refreshing break from traditional talk as he covers a variety of stories and topics that affect Americans – from family, social issues and pop culture, to news headlines, politics and playful debate.

Pags also makes frequent guest appearances on Fox News, CNN, CNBC, MSNBC and HLN, and is the primary fill-in host for The Glenn Beck Program.  For his work, Talkers magazine has included Pags in their annual “Heavy Hundred” list of the most important and influential talk show hosts in America for the better part of a decade.

Pags resides with his wife and four daughters in Texas.  When he’s not on-air or spending time with his family, the cancer survivor, professional saxophone player, car and technology enthusiast admittedly spends way too much time on social media.
