Rosemary Frisino Toohey

Rosemary Frisino Toohey’s long career in radio news has taken her from Ocean City to California, to Boston, to New York and finally to the nation’s capital.

She served as anchor on All-News WINS in New York — her favorite station until now — nine years.

Along the way, she also strung for Radio 2WS in Sydney, Australia, covering the United States east of the Mississippi.

She then made the jump to WTOP for 20 years where she won a national Edward R. Murrow Award for best radio newscast, co-anchoring the day after the attack on Osama Bin Laden’s hideout.

Her time at the station also included a stint as morning drive anchor until she was creamed on the capital beltway by a hit and run driver.

That’s when she began her playwriting career. She’s now written more than 40 plays, seen six of them published, and has had more than 170 productions from Alaska to Florida and New York to New Zealand.

Rosemary and husband Bill are the proud parents of four delightful young people.
