    Mayor de Blasio, a real 1%’er, goes to Food Fellas Pizzeria in Staten Island where you need to take a reverse mortgage on your house to afford any of their trendoid pizza pies. He then adds insult to injury by eating a slice (probably with pineapple and guacamole) with a knife and a fork. Oufffaahhh!!!! Curtis Sliwa, speaking for the 99%, has a slice NY style at a 99 cent pizza parlor in midtown. How ironic that the mayor who claims that there is a tale of two cities dines at a 5-star, top shelf pizzeria where you can’t even...

    Albans/News Curtis Sliwa (above) leaves WABC on Monday and will be replaced by John Batchelor seven days a week. Whether you think Curtis Sliwa is a street-smart good guy or one of local media's all-time great self-promoters, WABC (770 AM) won't sound quite the same without him. John Batchelor, who moves into Sliwa's old 9 p.m.-1 a.m. slot starting Monday night, likes to have fun and play music. But he also takes a methodical, scholarly approach to international geopolitics, often with an emphasis on the Middle East. Compared to Sliwa, he sounds downright professorial. Having Batchelor in the late-evening...

    Curtis Sliwa, for 18 years one of the most recognizable and persistent voices on WABC (770 AM), is leaving the station. WABC Tuesday announced that as of Monday, John Batchelor will begin hosting the 9 p.m.-1 a.m. weeknight slot that Sliwa had been holding down. Sliwa, also known as the founder of the Guardian Angels, confirmed Tuesday that "WABC and I were not able to agree on an extension of my contract." Concerning reports that he is talking with WNYM (970 AM), "The Apple," Sliwa said, "nothing is signed." For now, he said, he will continue to broadcast nightly from...

    They apparently met through a Craigslist ad for “violent sex” and the young man says he stabbed Weber in his Brooklyn apartment Friday night during a “violent, drug-fueled assault.” The Daily News says police got on the trail by looking through Weber’s home computer and cellphone records. Investigators believe George was killed Friday night, the victim of knife wounds all over his body. He had most recently been doing weekend anchor work for ABC News Radio, and before that had spent most of a decade at WABC, New York (770). WABC PD Laurie Cantillo says there may be a memorial...

He'll follow author and journalist Michele McPhee (7-10pm), and lead into the syndicated Phil Hendrie from TRN.

    ALL those politically correct types who piled on last April when Don Imus went down for making his bad "nappy-headed ho's" joke had better duck and cover on Monday, when the I-Man goes back to work on WABC Radio. "I think he will have some scores to settle," the station's general manager, Phil Boyce, told Page Six yesterday. It is doubtful Imus will ever forgive CBS chief Les Moonves, who fired him, or regular guest Tim Russert, the host of NBC's "Meet the Press," who was "an invisible man" while Imus was under attack.

    After three mistrials in a year, federal prosecutors said Friday that they will not pursue a fourth racketeering trial against John "Junior" Gotti, the legendary mob boss's son. "A retrial of defendant John A. Gotti on the pending indictment is not in the interests of justice in light of the three prior hung juries in the case," said U.S. Attorney Michael Garcia. Garcia said the court had signed prosecution paperwork filed Thursday "which ends this prosecution." Gotti was charged with ordering the botched kidnapping of Guardian Angels founder Curtis Sliwa, who almost died in the 1992 attack. Sliwa was outraged...

Prosecutors wrote in a letter to U.S. District Judge Shira Scheindlin that the lifestyle is especially surprising since Gotti has been in jail or on home detention for the last eight years and his wife does not appear to have a full-time job outside the home.

    Crime in New Zealand is probably not something you get to see much news about in the United States. Life here is very different to life in the USA, and despite what you may have heard, Crime is a growing problem DownUnder. And we are seeing a proliferation of some purely-American criminal elements and ideas, such as "Crips" and "Bloods" and colors, and the occasional drive-by-shooting. These are new concepts to us: they were not here 10 years ago. Accordingly, we have imported some good old-fashioned American ideas to help us combat Crime: such as the Guardian Angels.

The bartender, George DiBello, suggested that the witness, Joseph D'Angelo, would surely have noticed the unusual décor of Our Friends Social Club, in Ozone Park, Queens, if he had been there, as he claimed in his testimony. Was there anything unusual about the décor of the...

    NEW YORK -- A radio talk show host swung his arms from side to side on the witness stand Monday as he relived his 1992 shooting in the back of a taxi during a kidnapping prosecutors blame on John A. "Junior" Gotti. The eyes of most jurors at Gotti's racketeering trial seemed fixed on the witness, Guardian Angels founder Curtis Sliwa, as he recounted how a routine cab ride to work changed abruptly in June 1992 when a masked gunman popped up from the front passenger seat and aimed a handgun at him. "Take this," Sliwa recalled the man saying...

    John "Junior" Gotti, who insists he quit the mob family run by his late father, the "Dapper Don," watched jury selection start yesterday at his racketeering retrial in Manhattan. One prospective juror was quickly disqualified: a former supervisor of the FBI's organized crime squad. The most serious charge facing Gotti is the 1992 kidnapping of radio host Curtis Sliwa, the founder of the Guardian Angels crime-fighting group, who allegedly was targeted by "Junior" Gotti because of his on-air rants against the late John Gotti.

    The jailed son of late mob boss John Gotti neared freedom on Monday after a judge agreed to release him on $7 million bond, less than a week after declaring a mistrial on the bulk of his racketeering case. Under bail conditions approved by U.S. District Judge Shira Scheindlin, John A. ``Junior'' Gotti would be released from a federal lockup in lower Manhattan, but remain under house arrest in his home on Long Island until a possible retrial early next year. Gotti, 41, was still in custody Monday as paperwork was finalized. His lawyers said he could be home with...

    John Gotti's son tried to silence radio host Curtis Sliwa permanently in an infamous 1992 rubout attempt - all because the Guardian Angel gave his father the devil, prosecutors charged yesterday. For John (Junior) Gotti, set to finish up a prison term for racketeering on Sept. 7, the new charges mean he could face a sentence of 130 more years if convicted. For Sliwa, the indictment was a "vindication" of a 12-year struggle for justice in an attack that left him with wounds to both legs. "I hope to live long enough to see him go straight to hell," said...
