Bio: For nearly two decades Al Vuona has been the host of “The Public Eye,” and since December 2022, Al has served as Underwriting Manager at WICN.
Al’s love of interviewing guests with diverse backgrounds and experiences has made for some great talk radio. From celebrities and bestselling authors to CEOs and politicians the show has continued to cross boundaries while at the same time informing and entertaining audiences with unique perspectives.
Al’s background in sales, marketing, and entrepreneurship has given him a unique perspective on people and issues, as well as in his ability to develop partnerships with Underwriters for WICN. As the Underwriting Manager, Al is able to help local businesses to reach WICN’s loyal audience to aid the growth of these businesses. He also spent eight years as a License Commissioner for the City of Worcester, gaining valuable experience in the inner workings of state and local government.
A public speaker with degrees in business, communications, and economics Al enjoys interacting with an audience. He has given presentations and workshops on effective communications, marketing, sales, and customer service. His love of food and wine has been a mainstay over the years and continues to grow. His “Vino with Al Vuona” wine-tasting seminars which he conducts all over Central MASS are both educational and entertaining.
He is also a freelance writer who has been published in local and national publications such as Wine Enthusiast, Quarterly Review of Wine, Sales and Marketing Management Magazine, and Worcester Magazine. He is currently the wine columnist for the Worcester Telegram & Gazette, where his column “Off The Vine” can be found each and every week. Al considers wine, music, a good book, and classic movies as his passions.
