Upon graduating, he worked as a video editor at V66 for one year. After that, he joined WAAF as a promotion coordinator from 1986 to 1988.

Hill progressed up the ranks, finally landing a weekend overnight shift on WAAF, which led to his anchoring his morning program in 1991. Hill was the host and namesake of WEEI’s sister station WAAF’s The Hill-Man Morning Show for nearly three decades until (1989-2019).

‘The Greg Hill Morning Show’
Hill joined WEEI in July 2019. Since then, he has been The Greg Hill Morning Show host alongside Jermaine Wiggins and Courtney Cox. The show airs from 6 to 10 a.m. on weekdays on WEEI 93.7 FM. Cox joined the show in July 2021. The broadcast also features a conversation with Patriots coach Bill Belichick every Monday throughout the football season.
In a 2019 interview with Boston Man magazine, Hill revealed it was strange for him to move to WEEI because he had practically worked at only one company, WAAF, since he was 18. “The transition was really bizarre at first,” Hill said. “It’s a whole new studio, new format, new producers and new audience. But you also want to try to make the show true to the old show for the listeners who came over to EEI with me. So it took a while to figure out how to make it all work.”
The Greg Hill Foundation
Hill and his listeners have been an influence in philanthropic donations besides his radio job. Greg established The Greg Hill Foundation in 2010 and has since raised $10 million in donations for over 7500 local families and organizations. By matching donations from Greg’s media audience, the charity aims to help families facing emergencies in the New England area.
He started the foundation in 2010 when Go Fund Me wasn’t around, and there were no central means to give to someone in immediate need. “I’d walk in to do the show in the morning and something horrible had happened the day before, and people would call and ask how they could give. It would always take weeks for someone to set a fund up at a local credit union, so I wanted to find a way to harness the need people have to help others and to do it right away,” he said in a 2019 interview with Boston Man magazine.
In March 2021, Grubhub and The Greg Hill Foundation’s Restaurant Strong Fund unveiled the Restaurant Stronger campaign. It is an initiative to award $5,000 grants to eligible independent restaurants as the newest phase in their commitment to supporting restaurants.
The Restaurant Stronger funds would assist restaurants in fully reopening their doors, including staff hiring and training, COVID-related needs, and inventory purchasing, as the industry faces post-pandemic hurdles.
“Over the last 14 months, the support that Grubhub has given to the restaurant community has been extraordinary,” Hill said about the initiative. “They have ensured that the Restaurant Strong Fund was able to provide millions of dollars in grants to restaurants and their employees to help them survive.”
