Mark Simone has reported on his twitter that liberal radio host Lynn Samuels has died.
Her last show was on WABC in 2002. Lynn didn’t want to be paired with Farber, right?
My wife could never figure out why I listened to her on WABC. She was definitely an acquired taste.
I didn’t like her. She was liberal, and wasn’t nice to conservatives on the show.
She was referring to Norman Rosenbaum, who was seeking justice for his brother’s murder. Apparently she didn’t like the idea of Norman trying to hold Al Sharpton, to an extent, morally culpable.
God bless your soul, Lynn. You were one of a kind. A wonderful person. Funny. Witty. Opinionated. Outspoken. Always entertaining. Humane. A real mensch! In a just world, you would have been a huge star. You were always true to yourself, the highest praise I can offer. And this praise comes from an ardent right-winger. I miss you already!
Now the station, excluding Rush, is in the doldrums.
Doug McIntrye left, Joe Crummy is gone-and is being replaced by that open borders idiot Geraldo-and we're saturated with Mark Simone.
It's getting as bad as WOR.
I’ll miss her.
Here’s a clip I found from a few years back talking about Obama; she was no fan. Whoever posted it gave it the title:
“Barack Obama Belittle and Stereotype Working Class Americans.”
According to the New York Post, she died of a heart attack:
Lynn lived near me in Woodside. I used to see her in the supermarket but had not seen her in a while. She was friendly although I disagreed with her on most issues. RIP.
First Neil Rogers last year, now her.
As if radio doesn’t suck enough, we keep losing the good intellectually honest ones.
Lynn was as far left as they come, but condolences to her family, friends and fans anyway.
I don't ever recall her being short or snippy with me, nor was she ever less than pleasant with Carl. (What ever happened to CfOB after his gig with Newsmax?)
She was the quintessential leftist New Yorker Jewish liberal with the raspy voice. I have to say she always tried to be fair in her own odd way. She was more a cultural leftist who inherited her leftism from her parents. She wasn’t dogmatic or doctrinaire which drove some her fellow radicals nuts. RIP
Thanks for the ping
I haven't seen anything from Carl for years now.
I heard her with other callers, and she was similar to Bob Grant. I only heard her the last couple of years she was on WABC, aside from when I heard my parents listening to her when I was young. I don’t know what happened to Carl Limbacher.
Lynn Samuels was the house Lib for WABC Radio in NY.
she was an affable lefty...could not stand her politics but something to like about HER as a person.
Rest in Peace Lynn.
