Bill Anderson

Bill Anderson has a lot on his mind, and for 15 hours each week, he tells it like it is on 900 AM WURD radio. The 15-year radio veteran, whose father is Philly radio legend Cody Anderson, spends his mornings on Wake Up with Bill, where he has interviewed everyone from the mayor of Philadelphia and members of Congress to entertainers and athletes. The Fox TV analyst usually talks politics, social issues, and current affairs with his guests. Over at UPTOWN Magazine, Anderson shares details about mentors, handling difficult situations and money-making hobbies. But first, he reveals a few off-the-cuff favorites to US.


Travel savvy: I like boutique hotels. The Standard in downtown L.A. is great.

Smart shopping: I’m not a regular at places like Boyds and Distante. I go to Leo’s Apparel on Germantown Avenue near Lehigh Avenue

Vacation destination: I have a very short attention span, so I go on cruises—they allow you to wake up in different places, all on the same trip.

Signature drink: I’ll do a margarita or try different beers from local microbrewing companies.
