About Feinburg and McPhee
Todd got the radio bug while in college, working as a newscaster, DJ, and eventually the General Manager of WMFO, the 100 watt FM station at Tufts University.
While he preferred radio to academics from his first day behind the mic, the books were left pretty far behind for good when the station was destroyed by fire during his junior year. Todd was too busy getting the station back on the air - within hours, at a new location on campus using equipment donated from a commercial Boston radio station (thanks to radio legend Arnie the Woo Woo Ginsburg) and records donated by listeners - to pay too much attention to text books anymore.
After graduating from Tufts University with a degree in political science, Todd became an international chemical trader with Sobin Chemical in Boston, focusing on trade with China. Two years later, he left the family business to pursue a career in radio.
Todd worked as a disc jockey, news director and beautiful music announcer before spending two years as a helicopter traffic reporter in Boston.
Todd has spent the past fifteen years in the talk radio field. He hosted evenings and late mornings at WRKO before the move to mornings in January of 2008.
He has toured the Middle East several times since September 11, visiting Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Oman. In 2005, he spent 6 weeks as a long term substitute teacher in an urban middle school so that he could gain some first hand experience with the public schools. Todd has been named three times to Talkers Magazine's list of the Top 100 Most Important Talk Hosts in America.
Born and raised in Lexington, Todd has always lived in the Greater Boston area, except for a year at the University of Denver. Todd currently lives with his wife, Rosalie, on Boston's North Shore.

McPhee was a story consultant for Sony Pictures Lifetime made-for-television movie based on the Clark Rockefeller case that was aired on March 13, 2010.
McPhee is also a frequent commentator on Boston's Fox 25 and is the New England correspondent for ABC News. She has co-produced and hosted two Tru-TV "Mugshot" specials – one chronicling Chris Paciello, the South Beach, Miami nightclub king turned mob rat who was the subject of her book "Mob Over Miami." The second Tru-TV documentary centered on the life of Sammy "The Bull" Gravano, the Gambino crime family turncoat whose testimony sent the late John Gotti to prison for life. She is also a creator of the A&E TV special, "Crime Ink," which featured her reporting alongside other crime scribes in New York City. She has covered high-profile crime cases across the country and has been a commentator on breaking news for national programs on CNN; MSNBC; and the Fox News Network. McPhee was the first female Police Bureau Chief for the New York Daily News, the paper where she covered murder, mayhem and the Mafia for nearly ten years. She was at Ground Zero on September 11, 2001 – the terrible morning when 23 NYPD officers, 37 Port Authority police officers, and 343 FDNY members were slain. She was the recipient of the 2002 New York Society of the Silurian's Feature News Award for a body of work entitled: "The Days After."
She returned to her native Boston in 2004, where McPhee was a weekly columnist and the Police Bureau Chief for the Boston Herald. She was awarded first place for "Serious Column" by the New England Press Association in 2007. McPhee's true crime stories have appeared in more than a dozen national magazines including Maxim; Stuff; Cosmopolitan; New York; ESPN the Magazine; Gotham; Manhattan File; and other international publications. The Harley-riding McPhee lives in Boston, Massachusetts with her dog Wilbur.
