    With brutal MS-13 crimes sweeping Long Island and officials calling the scourge a public safety crisis, Curtis Sliwa, founder of the Guardian Angels, revealed a new plan he's developed, showing authorities how to "rein in MS-13." After the gruesome discovery of four bodies in Central Islip on Long Island — the four young men are believed to have been victims of the deadly MS-13 street gang — the spotlight is on Suffolk County as lawmakers, educators and a horrified public try to shine a light on MS-13 and seek answers on how to stem the tide of escalating violence. Sliwa,...

    The Guardian Angels are back — and their leader says it’s because Mayor Bill de Blasio can’t keep New York City safe. Curtis Sliwa, 61, radio personality and founder of the unarmed anti-crime patrol, joined five of his Angels in their first sortie into Central Park in more than two decades Sunday night. “If the mayor won’t let the cops do their job, then we, the citizens, will have to go back to guarding our parks, streets and subways,” Sliwa said.

    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...

  • Curtis Sliwa suspends show producer for screensaver snafu regarding Obama's "birth certificate"

    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 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...

    In an interview with Curtis Sliwa on ABC Radio last night, the host and RNC Chairman Michael Steele jokingly linked Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal to the film "Slumdog Millionaire." Steele offered Jindal "slum love. Here's the transcript: SLIWA: Now, using a little bit of that street terminology, are you giving him any Slum love, Michael? STEELE: (laughter) SLIWA: Because he is — when guys look at him and young women look at him — they say oh, that's the slumdog millionaire, governor. So, give me some slum love. STEELE: I love it.

  • Veteran radio host Bob Grant booted from nightly show on WABC

    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 start Wednesday (October 1) on Greater Media's FM talker in Boston, WTKK at 96.9. The hours will be very late for the longtime morning man at WABC - 10pm-1am. Curtis says "WTKK is giving me a chance to do live and local radio in Boston, where I can continue to take it from the suites to the streets, and be raw and real." He'll follow author and journalist Michele McPhee (7-10pm), and lead into the syndicated Phil Hendrie from TRN. Greater Media may feel that Guardian Angels founder Sliwa already has some recognition in Boston due to the local...

    If Staten Island Republicans can't find a candidate to replace GOP Rep. Vito Fossella in Congress, radio talk-show host Curtis Sliwa says he'd think about running. "I'm sure that you will be able to find a well known or well qualified candidate, with a distinguished record of public service," Sliwa said in a letter to borough GOP chairman John Friscia today. "If however the party is unable to, if you think it would be of help, I might be willing to be considered as a possible candidate." For the full text of Sliwa's letter, check out Tom Wrobleski's "Polit.bureau" blog....

    March 26 2007 Waitakere SDA School, Henderson, Waitakere City As you may know, the Guardian Angels in New Zealand teach a group of kids basic Self-Defense: just the basic stuff, like how to get away from Bad Guys, how to stop someone from bullying you -- that sort of thing. No Bruce Lee stuff. It is a class that is normally led by BatBob, my 2IC: he is an expert, both at Martial Arts and teaching kids. It is a very popular program. Today BatBob needed a substitute to teach our Youth Program: unfortunately his father is experiencing failing health...

    John Gambling City radio veteran John Gambling is out - and Curtis Sliwa is in.Gambling was fired from WABC, a victim of hard times at the station's parent company, Citadel Broadcasting.Sliwa will get Gambling's 10 a.m. slot starting Monday. 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...
