General Manager: Duff Sheffield
Duff has been a New York City Metro area veteran broadcaster and programming pro since 1970. Currently, he is General Manager & Program Director of WFDU-FM : Public Radio For the NYC Metro Area. The station is located just 5 miles across the George Washington Bridge connecting Manhattan to the Metropolitan Campus of Fairleigh Dickinson University. Duff can also teach a thing or two - having been a professor of radio and TV broadcasting, public speaking and drama for 22 years. As a 1974 FDU graduate, Duff takes particular pride in guiding the radio station he helped establish in 1971 (his office today was his dorm room in 1970!). Playing & collecting guitars and sailing his sailboat are leisure activities. Surfing remains a passion:


Duff cut his broadcast teeth at WXLO - 99X answering the request line. But upon graduation from FDU in 1974, he was offered the Production Manager's position at the "X" during the heyday of FM radio in NYC. He added on-air DJ and talk show host to his resume in the 80s. He left the The Big Apple in 1990 to return to his roots at WFDU. The list of stations that benefited from his expertise include: WXLO-99X, WOR-AM, The RKO Radio Networks, WNNNN-BC 66AM,WMCA-AM and the CBS Radio-Radio Network.


Duff absolutely enjoys his role as leader of the WFDU Broadcast Media department, guiding the station into the next phase of radio with 5 times the transmission power over the NYC Metro area, with a new potential audience of 8.2 million people. The addition of an HD (Hybrid Digital) transmitter will allow 3 separate channels of WFDU: "The Essential WFDU HD1", "Jazz & What's More on WFDU HD2" and classical music on "Masterworks on WFDU HD3". All channels will be on the air and streaming on the web and smartphone apps including affiliation with iHeartRadio.He also owns and operates Sheffield Studios in Mahwah, NJ.
Born in Manhattan and growing up in Yonkers, New York, Duff attended Yonkers public schools including Roosevelt High School (with Steven Tyler of Aerosmith). He holds a B.S. in Marine Biology from Fairleigh Dickinson University class of 1974.

From there, he began to learn "The Art and Craft of Broadcasting" and continues to learn more everyday. In addition to his work as a student at WFDU, Kenny also became heavily involved in the broadcasting and announcing of sporting events for both the Metropolitan and Florham Campus athletic departments. He was a graduate assistant for the FDU Knights and has been the "Voice" of the FDU Devils for the last seven years. He even accompanied the Devils Women's basketball team to Stevens Point, Wisconsin to call their first ever National Championship.

Currently, Kenny is working full time as the WFDU Broadcast Media Operations Manager. In that position, he is responsible for many of the production and engineering tasks that face the radio station on a daily basis. He was an integral part in the development of the new WFDU Web-Video Streaming service and is currently WFDU's RetroRadio host of the Tuesday & Thursday 9am-1pm & Friday 1pm-4pm slots.With WFDU having undergone a transmitter upgrade and power increase, Kenny is also managing the WFDU HD2 & HD 3 channels and is responsible for training the many new volunteer staff members as well as FDU students. He is also responsible for bringing new underwriters to the station and managing the all-important Traffic & Continuity Department.

For six years, Kenny had been the host of "Let There Be Country," one of the most popular shows on the station.In addition, he is the co-host and producer of "The Greg Herenda Show," with the FDU Knights Head Men's Basketball Coach.
