Daytime Soap Star John Aniston

Those of us who have watched the daytime soap operas over the years will probably recognize the name of John Aniston.  Known as Victor Kiriakis on Days of Our Lives, Aniston has been one of the central characters on the long running soap.  He will be my special guest on the next edition of The Boomer Beat  Thursday, March 17 on WCOM Radio and then again in an encore presentation on Sunday, March 20 at 6pm ET on BlogTalk Radio.  We’ll be discussing his long career in daytime TV.

Although Aniston has been a Days of Our Lives cast member since 1985, his acting career has spanned nearly 40 years.

The Days cast members are promoting the iconic soap opera’s 45th anniversary and accompanying book, “Days of our Lives 45 Years: A Celebration in Photos.” Days has the distinction of dedicating many of its storylines to a mature audience which, Mahone says, fits in nicely with the theme for her weekly show.

The Boomer Beat can be heard every Thursday from 1pm to 2pm on WCOM 103.5fm in Carrboro, NC.  You can also listen to the live stream at

For those of you who don’t know anything about the Soaps, perhaps you know Aniston’s daughter—Jennifer.
