  • Bob Grant, Father of Conservative Talk Radio, Dead at 84

    Veteran New York radio personality Bob Grant — widely credited with inventing the conservative talk-radio format — has died at the age of 84. Grant, who lived in Toms River, N.J., passed away on New Year's Eve, according to the Branchburg Funeral Home. Grant began his career as a controversial talk show host in 1970 when he joined WMCA in New York and quickly bucked the liberal slant of many of the other hosts. The gravel-voiced talker's in-your-face opinions and regular telling off of callers often got him in hot water. He opened his show stating: "Good afternoon, ladies and...

    The legendary and controversial Bob Grant has died. Grant spent the majority of his radio career talking in New York City. Grant moved to New York in 1970 to host a talk show on WMCA-AM, where he spent seven years steadily building his audience. Leaving WMCA in 1977, Grant worked his first stint at WOR, and later moved to WWDB in Philadelphia before returning to New York as the cornerstone of WABC’s new talk format in 1984. He remained at WABC until his much-publicized firing in 1996. Ten days later, Bob Grant was hired by WOR. …

    I've listened to Bob Grant off and on for years, starting with the afternoon show on WOR 710. He was a true original, doing political talk radio years before it was in fashion and during the height of the so-called 'Fairness Doctrine'. Grant's show has always been provocative and has spawned a host of imitators: he was the original 'Get off my phone' guy who had zero patience for nitwit lefty callers. In addition to never suffering such fools, he also has good regular callers such as 'Jimmy from Brooklyn', who intimately understands the nature of the threat posed by...

    NY DAILY NEWS ^ | November 25th 2008 | DAVID HINCKLEY
    It's another bad week for veteran New York radio personalities, as Bob Grant has lost his nightly show at WABC (again) and WBLS reportedly has terminated evening host Vaughn Harper and overnight host Champaine. A WABC (770 AM) spokeswoman confirmed that Grant will no longer do the 8-10 p.m. nightly show, but will do fill-in and other unspecified shifts. That could keep Grant busy for a while, because radio stations require lots of fill-ins during the yearend holidays. The bigger question may be whether his contract, which reportedly expires at the end of the year, will be renewed. Grant was...
  • Time for “Morning Joe” Scarborough? (also: Ingraham replaces Grant on WABC)

    Taylor on radio-info.com ^ | 11/26/08 | Tom Taylor
    Joe Scarborough looks like radio’s next syndicated talker. Can he make it, this time? The former Republican Congressman and current MSNBC "Morning Joe" host wants another shot at talk radio, and Citadel’s ABC Radio Networks is probably going to give him that chance. It would be for a late-morning program that might air 10-11:45am on WABC (770) and be syndicated nationally. Scarborough briefly hosted a show for Westwood in 2005. But it had trouble getting clearances in its 10am-1pm live timeslot and he left after about four months - the blink of an eye, in syndication terms. So what’s different...

    Conservative pundit and author Ann Coulter declared that Barack Obama’s “civilian national security force” would likely result in “a lot more Waco raids.” The reference was to the February 1993 raid by federal agents on the Branch Davidian ranch near Waco and the subsequent siege, which left 86 dead, including four agents. During Coulter’s appearance on Bob Grant’s radio show on Nov. 5, Grant played a portion of Obama’s July 2 speech in Colorado: “We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian...

Grant, 76, was abruptly fired 10 years ago - right after Disney bought ABC - for making a wisecrack about the death of Commerce Secretary Ron Brown in a plane crash. Now, WABC is awaiting the closing of a Disney deal to sell ABC's radio division to Citadel Broadcasting - which could open the door for Grant's return.

    I don't know exactly when the conventional wisdom changed to create all-conservative talk stations and all-liberal talk stations, but that's the way things are now, for the most part. Maybe it's a sign of the increasing polarization of American political discourse. Or maybe PDs just got tired of hearing complaints from one host's fans about the other host's show. It's kind of a shame, actually. I was talking about this with a host who lands on the liberal end of the political spectrum who's worked at some conservative stations. And the reaction he got as a left-winger on a right-wing...

    Even for those not particularly familiar with the broadcast legend, it was quite a moving send-off for WOR/New York's Bob Grant this evening. Saying goodbye after decades of trailblazing talk radio entertainment, Grant was praised by some of the industry's biggest names, including Howard Stern. In a particularly fascinating radio moment, Stern revealed just how much he had influenced his own career. In addition, Howard credited Grant for the development of the modern conservative movement, calling him years ahead of nearly everyone else. Stern wondered why Grant hadn't become a major national star along the lines of Rush Limbaugh and...

    Bob Grant recalls watching legendary talk radio host Long John Nebel in his final days at WMCA, being wheeled to the microphone to force himself through a few minutes of airtime before, in great pain, he had to lie down. "It was what he wanted," Grant said yesterday. "Radio was his life. But it was sad. It was not pleasant to watch." Grant doesn't say so directly, but that's clearly one reason why, at age 76 and still in good health, he's content to wind up his WOR (710 AM) radio career today. Grant started on radio in the 1940s,...

He indicated that he read this on Freerepublic, (apparently as a post) but would not divulge any particulars, since he couldn't verify the purported facts himself. I've searched FR for 10 minutes and could find nothing current on McGreevey. Anyone out there hear this, or know anything about it?
