Posted on 02/08/2010 10:33:38 PM PST by Dajjal
PREMIERE President of Content and Affiliate Relations JULIE TALBOTT responded to WABC's move to cancel "COAST TO COAST AM" by telling ALL ACCESS, "Its shocking when a top-rated program is removed from a station. However, were incredibly proud that COAST TO COAST AM continues to be the most-listened-to overnight radio program in NORTH AMERICA, broadcasting live on 527 affiliates to more than three million passionate and loyal listeners each week who enjoy hearing one of the most relevant and entertaining shows in the news-talk world."

I find Coast-to-Coast hilarious. I like the I-was-abducted-by-aliens and the future-seers, but my second favorite is the-Republicans-are-Illuminati crowd. And it has the best bumper music ever.
Listen now, fabulously hilarious. Satellites are beaming “audio-to-skull”! Get yer aluminum foil hats on pronto!
It’s a conspiracy!
Noory is an Obama apologist. Started before the Nov elections and kept chanting “hope and change” and all that moronic talking points. BUT I never miss his Halloween show. The night demon in the house of an unbelieving father who mocked his daughters’ story was epic.
I love coast to coast, its the only thing that keeps me awake when I am driving at night. It is hilarious.
Back when Art was at the mic, that was true. Since Noory took over, the bumper music has absolutely sucked. Like Savage, he's stuck on old 50's era stuff that few in his audience really enjoy.
Kind of weird how that works.
If you want to stay awake it keeps your mind occupied.
But if you’re having trouble getting to sleep, you can listen and that will work too. I think it’s all the boring commercials that put me to sleep.
Noory is an interesting person. He has to be very open-minded in order not to go crazy with some of the people he has on his show.
A few are conservative, such as Jerry Corsi, who talks not only about Obama’s background, but also on Iran’s nuclear weapons program, the source of oil in the earth, the economy, and the environment.
Ian Punit is a leftist junior wacko. Art Bell is Art Bell.
Now, did I just see a shadow person cross the room behind me?
That was just one of those silent black helicopters flying over.
I catch "Coast to Coast" every now and then if I'm driving home from somewhere when it's on. I've been listening sporadically for years.
I'm sorry to hear it's being canceled; I'll miss it.
I just changed stations. a re-broadcast of Mark Levin and in a few minutes ditto John Gibson.
Noory regularly has guests attacking the "Nazi" Bush family -- even a year after Bush left office! (At least once.) Likely this guest will say that Bush left the silverware alone but stole the technology to project voices. :)
Alex Jones was a virtual co-host with Bush tales. He's rarely mentioned anymore -- though once he was on so that an angry Noory could lambaste him for making Obama.. er, excuse me, PRESIDENT Obama look bad in a story on Jones' web site. To be fair, I believe Jones was permitted weeks later to talk about his Obama government video.
Regular guest Jerome Corsi was not a Bush basher but he was a critic -- Noory refused to let him talk about Obama Nation unless others could be there to refute the book.
Noory is ten years younger than me. So I assume he's a FDR Democrat -- patriotic, loves America but hates "Daddy Warbucks" Republicans.
There are limits.. Noory refused to let Corsi talk about Obama Nation unless others could be there to refute the book. I heard Noory say that. I am not aware that he's changed -- though he may be starting to wonder about that hopey-changy stuff.
My sentiments exactly. I stopped listening when Art left. George's bumper music sucks big time. Just like George.
Art did have better bumper music, too. I like Ian Punit, he catches the interesting points in interviews George will let go.
I do like the anti-inflamatory Tumeric spice report, though.
I tune in every night. I sometimes change stations but mostly I'm asleep within an hour,
Often there are current events programming, legit scientists and experts. It is not always UFOs -- never was.
Art Bell had Ruby Ridge and Waco stuff that helped FORCE Congress to hold real hearings.
Later Bell was out in front with OKC and Jayna Davis', et al investigations. Bell helped attack Clinton's efforts to trash the Second Amendment - and had perhaps the most memorable show I've heard in almost seventy years. It was with Emily (I'd have to look up her last name). She was politically active in Hong Kong and was a guest just before Red China took over. She was staying on to battle for democracy while others were fleeing.
I've emailed Art Bell twice asking him to get her on again now years after the take over. A news item I found a few years ago said that she and others were on the Commies' list of enemies. But Bell gets thousands of emails -- oh well.
Listening to them right now....
George has improved somewhat over the years, but he’s still Chinese plastic, to Art’s Brazilian mahogany.
I mostly only listen on weekends now, when Ian and others are at the mic. They’re not quite as irritating as George is.
What I’ve really gotten into on late weeknights is the Midnight Radio Network (the trucking show). The hosts really get into the political scene, and have a strong conservative bent.
I like them better than everyone on daytime talk radio, except Rush. They’re terrific.
It's been cancelled by WABC in the NYC area. They've replaced CTC with a RINO named Doug McIntyre.
CTC is alive and well everywhere else.
99 44/100 crap
good riddance, I hope they bump hannity up or bring back Ingraham Now he can cut loose in liberaland He was about the only alternative on morning drive time to Bill Handel who is a totally whiny babbling beligerant jackarse
>>Now, did I just see a shadow person cross the room behind me?
If it’s black, has a teleprompter, starts his sentences with “uh” and reaches into your wallet constantly..you have a problem. It could be a “corpse-man”.
How will I now know when black helicopters are over my house or aliens are trying to abduct and eat my dog?
The need to punt Punnett. He’s hurting the show and driving listeners away.
..how will I know when black helicopters are over my house...etc...

When I did a lot of night driving used to listen to Bell before I thankfully ‘discovered’ XM Radio.... I used to admire Art’s schtick, as he was doing a ‘job’, but the callers could be downright scary....I mean he would ‘egg them on’, but I guess when someone gives you a platform to tell how you were probed the 2nd or 3rd time you were abducted you really don’t need a whole lot of prompting...
Art Bell always claimed to be a Libertarian.
I was somewhat shocked several months ago, while listening to one of those rare shows hosted by Art.
Art said, “I was an early supporter of Barack Obama.”
I didn’t know that!
LOL. Great comparison.
I mostly only listen on weekends now, when Ian and others are at the mic. Theyre not quite as irritating as George is.
Same here. And once in a blue moon, Art is back. Like last week when Art subbed and interviewed the theoretical physicist Michio Kaku. That was a great show. Nobody can interview a guest like Art Bell.

I don't know anything about the Midnight Radio Network. I will have to look it up.

That sounds like something I would like to listen to.
KFI has it in LA instead of KABC I believe
WRKO in Boston dropped it because Premiere/Clear Channel is launching a talk station at AM 1200 in April and C2C should be headed there. WRKO also lost Prem/CC’s Glenn Beck which they were running as a best of on Sat nights. Replaced by Howie Carr re-runs and Rodger Hedgecock respectively
Man, no kidding. Noory is no Art Bell. Not by any stretch of the imagination, no pun intended. I keep wanting to shout at him, “Shut up about politics and stretch the envelope already, would ya?”
I tagged him as a Democrat sympathizer a long time ago.
During Katrina Noory absolutely excoriated Michael Brown. I was wondering if he would do the same for Democrats who have colossal screw ups. I am still waiting. There have been any number of foul ups and Noory is still silent.
When President Bush was in office there would be any number of calls bashing him. After Bammo got into office someone said something unkind about him and Noory gently chided him about how we needed to respect the President.
It seemed to me that bad news about Democrats was routinely ignored, and good news about Republicans would likewise be ignored. Sure enough, when Scott Brown won in Massachusetts there was no mention about it in his lead off monologue. Seriously now, this was a transfixing election, one that still has Democrats stunned. Kind of like a mouse staring into the eyes of a Cobra. But to Noory, it was not noteworthy.
Now, I enjoy all the alien stuff, the Annanaki chronicles and the conspiracy theories. It's great listening, but there are tremendous issues facing us, and we have a Presidential Administration which has put the whole country into a state of fear and angst. A lot of this should have been fodder for Noory. But ole go along, get along Noory can't be bothered. In the old days of Art Bell, he would have callers square off to debate Democrat vs Republican issues. If chicken George had the kind of guts Art had, he might not be facing cancellations. I pretty much don't listen to the show anymore, and I wish Noory well. I'm sure he will eventually land some other gig that he can screw up.
I agree with you. Good comments.
RE: "In the old days of Art Bell, he would have callers . . ".
Of course Art did not have a screener. I am not a talker I've been caller on local shows no more than three times.
I have had Noory respond to two of the few Fast Blasts, though.
One prompted him to ask his guest about Democrats helping the Nazis - - Prescott Bush was not the only American doing it. The guest not only confirmed it but named some Democrats. Noory was surprised (and likely promptly forgot it.)
I'm ten years older than Noory and I figure he's a FDR Democrat, patriotic and good American but he hates Republicans.
Art Bell lost my respect when he went nuts over that global warming stuff and we had to do something about it right now! He even had abductees of aliens claiming that the aliens lectured them about the problem. He jumped the shark IMO.
Here you go:
Eric Harley and Gary Macnamara are the hosts. Great listening.
You should be able to look up what radio station carries them in your area on the site. If there isn't one close enough for you to get their signal, you can listen live online.
I don't have much to add to your thoughts, except to say that Coast to Coast AM isn't centered around politics, but the otherworldly.
That being said, if the host crosses the line into current events of a socio-political nature, then they're opening themselves up to questions of partisanship, and they make themselves fair game for the listeners, at that point.
Back in the early days of GWB's term in office, Art was a die-hard patriotic supporter of the administration, and made no bones about it. Unlike Noory, he came down hard on the side of America, and was entirely overt about it. I heard him debate with callers many times about his feelings on the WOT.
Noory, on the other hand, has been a squish about politics. I've heard him express strong support for the 2nd Amendment, but he's waffley on the Socialist agenda. Frankly, I don't think he's the brightest bulb in the ceiling. He's easily swayed by liberal guests and callers.
He's like that on lots of things. Go along, get along George.
Shoot..... I remember hearing Art throw a guest off the show once, when he figured out that the guy was full of crap. Noory would never have the guts to do that.
Ian Pundit has by far the most scientifically-valid discussions.
Great. I will give it a listen.
My cat sees those shadow people all the time.
Best part, I don’t have a cat.
I have some bad news for you:
I agree Midnight Radio Network is the best.
New York's WOR (710) to drop Joey Reynolds overnights, add "Coast to Coast"
