He is one of the funniest
men who ever worked radio in Tampa Bay. Terrence McKeever was
first heard in Tampa Bay in 1970, when he was a news stringer
for WFSO Radio, while he worked at WLOF in Orlando.
McKeever came to WLCY in 1975, becoming a
star while doing morning news for Chris Holliday and Jeff Laurence.
His stint was cut short by a run in with GTE, they would not
press charges if he left town. He did.
McKeever came back to replace Scott Shannon
at Q105s Morning Zoo in 1983. He and Cleveland Wheeler
were a smash hit. McKeevers stay was cut short by a run
in with the law involving a DUI.
McKeever has some great stops on his resume,
having worked with Rick Dees, the creator of the Disco Duck song
in 1975. Terrence also worked in Corpus Christi Texas in 1996-97
as the co host of the morning show with Doc Weldon at KOUL 103.7.
That is the last anyone heard of Terrence,
we get emails claiming he passed away, but we can not find anyone
to confirm the rumor. If you hear of Terrence, let him know there
are a lot of people who still love him in Tampa Bay.

UPDATE: April 16th 2013
Terrance McKeever has passed away as well in Fredericksburg, VA. Terry was first heard on Tampa bay radio at WLCY in the 70s, but had worked at WLOF in Orlando prior to that. He will be best remembered as Cleveland Wheeler’s partner on the Q Morning Zoo at Q105
McKeever was witty and quick as they come, and will always be remembered for his smile, it warmed up the room from a mile away.
