    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...

    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...

    During last night's "The Curtis Sliwa Show" (Wed., 7/1/09), Curtis announced that he had suspended his longtime producer Frank Morano because of the fact that Frank had a screensaver on his own work computer that had a copy of the ObamaCrimes.com page depicting the alleged "faux" birth certificate of President Obama from the State of Hawaii. Sliwa said that Frank will be suspended for the rest of the week, or until he removes the screensaver, and he stated that the Citadel lawyers are working with Frank to get him back on the air on the grounds of Free Speech.

  • Sacha Baron Cohen is a fraud, says senior Republican tricked into bedroom (Ron Paul)

    Daily Mail ^ | 17th April 2009
    After the huge success of Sacha Baron Cohen's films Ali G In Da House and Borat, you'd think people would have wised up to the comedian's disguises. But it appears not everyone recognises the comedian when he's dressed up as his third alter-ego, gay Austrian fashion reporter Bruno. Texas congressman Ron Paul, who was a Republican candidate for the 2008 presidential election, was left fuming after he was unwittingly tricked into a hotel room with Cohen's Bruno character. The right-wing politician was tricked into being a target of seduction by Bruno last summer by posing as an economic reporter. After...

    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...

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

Also out is WPLJ afternoon host Rocky Allen. Further changes seemed imminent following a scorched-earth fourth quarter financial report from Citadel CEO Farid Suleman. There was no official announcement from WABC or Citadel that Gambling and newsman George Weber were dismissed, but company sources confirmed it. They said Sliwa will take over Gambling's 10-11:45 a.m. slot. That's a prominent position...

    Returning to the airwaves this morning after a seven-month exile, Don Imus seemed intent on demonstrating two things. First, that he was unequivocally contrite concerning the comments he had made about the Rutgers University women's basketball players that resulted in his firing. Second, his contrition notwithstanding, he wasn't going to change his irreverent ways when it came to the country's political leaders. To prove his iconoclastic bona fides, Imus concluded his monologue by observing "Dick Cheney is still a war criminal, and Hillary Clinton is still Satan." Listen to audio here [with apologies for the mediocre sound quality.] But before...

    Don Imus returned to the air waves this morning with a lengthy explanation of his side of the events that took place last April. He spoke of the meeting he had with the Rutger's women's basketball team and the things that he and they discussed. Imus also spoke of how the media said, at the time, that they were going to begin a dialog about race relations and quipped, "I must have missed that." He then pledged to do the media's work for them by using his program as a platform for such a dialog. Imus then ended the first...

    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.

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.

    He's stood up to tough guys all his life - and Guardian Angels founder Curtis Sliwa's parents expect him to deliver a knockout blow against John A. (Junior) Gotti when he faces off with the reputed mob boss in federal court today. It's a confrontation the elderly couple says the crimefighter-turned-radio-celebrity has been longing for. "He's looking forward to the chance to stand up in court and help put this guy away," Chester Sliwa, 84, said in an exclusive interview with the Daily News.

    When I pulled my car into a parking space at Dallas City Hall, I looked over to my left, and there was the man in the red jacket and matching beret, talking on his cell phone as he paced slowly on the concrete strip.

    D.C. Peaceniks: Bush More 'Evil' Than Saddam Anti-war protesters rallying in Washington, D.C. Saturday say President Bush is more 'evil' than Axis of Evil kingpin Saddam Hussein, the man who's likely to become the target of imminent U.S. military action in coming weeks. Though the crowd made their extreme anti-Bush and anti-American feelings amply apparent as they gathered on the Capitol Mall early Saturday morning, most of the uglier sentiments were being filtered out by reporters and news editors intent on giving a sanitized version of the event.
