Scott and Danielle have known each other since 2006 but weren’t officially paired together on the air until 2014. They are total opposites but, somehow, it works perfectly on the air (most days)!
Scott Mackay knew when he was 6 and got the microphone from the Sears’ Catalog that radio was his future. He didn’t sing, he did his own radio shows. Fast forward 36 years and he is celebrating his 8th year as host of the Mackay in the Morning show. Scott lives in Geneva with his wife and they have four kids between them. Besides attending and hosting many charity events and concerts, if he’s not on the radio and there’s no snow on the ground, Mackay will most likely be on a golf course.
By the time Danielle Tufano went to college, she had no idea what she wanted to do with her life so she started studying Business and eventually received her Bachelor’s Degree in Technical Management. After a friend suggested she try radio, she gave it a shot and never looked back! Danielle also serves as The River’s Program Director…so she is technically a manager (circle back to college degree). Danielle has lived in Aurora for over 20 years… went to Hall Elementary, Washington AND Jefferson Middle Schools and West Aurora High School. She loves sharing stories about her adorable niece and nephew. When she’s not on the radio, you will most likely either find her napping or volunteering at one of the many non-profits that she dedicates her time to.
