Mike Chimeri is a contemporary jazz radio host, photographer, videographer, blogger, voice over artist, and a lifelong instrumental music enthusiast. He is currently the host of Instrumental Invasion with Mike Chimeri, Wednesday nights on WCWP-FM, LIU Post’s public radio station.

Mike’s life in radio began in 2001, hosting a contemporary jazz show called The Mike Chimeri Show. From July 2004 to May 2005, he hosted The (original) Instrumental Invasion at WGBB-AM. He ran a Live365 Internet Radio station, MCJN: Mike Chimeri Jazz Net, from May to July 2007.

From January to July 2010, he was one of the hosts of Evening Jazz on WCWP-FM, a Monday to Thursday format. For the first five months, he hosted Tuesdays and Thursdays, limiting himself to Thursdays for the last two months.

From September to December 2010, he ran his second Live365 station, CJazzPlus.

Since 2006, except for 2010, Mike has hosted a two-hour contemporary jazz radio show on WCWP during the weekend of LIU Post’s Homecoming. Shows have aired live some years, prerecorded other years, and both since 2015.

From July to September 2017, he posted a series of videos on his YouTube channel called Mike Chimeri’s Music Collection.

In 2021, Mike was selected for induction into the WCWP Hall of Fame in a ceremony that was ultimately held in June 2022.

Mike is not afraid to admit he has what was once known as Asperger Syndrome, an autism spectrum disorder. Although only diagnosed with it in 1999, he’s had it his entire life.

“Chimeri” is pronounced “shiMARY.”
