WABC Throws Down the Gauntlet in NYC Talk Radio War

Back in August, I put WABC on a Deathwatch Clock. With the looming loss of both Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity to rival talk station WOR–and no credible replacements being touted, I figured they were toast. At the time, it looked like Cumulus would be replacing the nation’s two biggest talk radio hosts with Mike Huckabee, and the vile troll who calls himself Michael Savage.

I figured Limbaugh and Hannity would move down the dial to WOR and then eat WABC’s replacement squad for lunch. Then, Huckabee announced he was ending his radio show, and I was sure it was curtains, baby!, for WABC….

Throw that prediction straight out the nearest window; It’s pretty safe to say no one saw today’s announcement coming:

WABC-AM (770), which is owned by Cumulus Media, will introduce a new lineup on Thursday that emphasizes live and local programming, as its two most popular hosts, Rush Limbaughand Sean Hannity, move to a rival station, WOR-AM (710).

Weekday programming at WABC will include the return of Curtis Sliwa’s and Ron Kuby’s show, “Curtis and Kuby,” from noon to 3 p.m., after an absence of more than six years, and, starting Monday, a one-hour program at 5 p.m. with Pat Kiernan, the NY1 television anchor.

This is a pretty big deal for Big Apple talk radio junkies like yours truly. It’s also a conflagration of corporate confusion every way you look at it. Read more ›

 
  

A&E Will Choke For Accepting Those 30 Pieces of GLAAD Delivered Silver

A&E never understood what they were dealing with when they green-lighted Duck Dynasty. And that stupidity is now biting them in the ass.

A&E is–as most media outfits are–populated by completely obtuse Manhattan-based metrosexual males and fag hag chicks who think they are slick. Though I have no first hand knowledge of the A&E staff, I’m confident in saying this, because I’ve worked gigs at numerous media joints, among them Random House, Simon & Shuster, HBO, and the Village Voice. I know these folks, and just how myopically attenuated is their world view.

Birds of a feather, etcetera, etcetera….

So I’m convinced the idiots at A&E actually didn’t see this coming…

Tolerance: Radical Left Claims A Christian Scalp

So, Phil Robertson, patriarch of the family featured in the wildly successful reality TV show Duck Dynasty, during an interview with GQ Magazine, said something anyone who has watched even one episode of Duck Dynasty could have seen coming from a mile off:

“We’re Bible-thumpers who just happened to end up on television,” he tells me. “You put in your article that the Robertson family really believes strongly that if the human race loved each other and they loved God, we would just be better off. We ought to just be repentant, turn to God, and let’s get on with it, and everything will turn around.”

Of course, that wasn’t what sent the usual suspects first to their fainting couches, and then quickly into a PC-fueled rage. That was completely ignored. That wasn’t the quote GQ found so note-worthy that they featured it in the profile’s opening stanza:

“It seems like, to me, a vagina—as a man—would be more desirable than a man’s anus. That’s just me. I’m just thinking: There’s more there! She’s got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I’m saying? But hey, sin: It’s not logical, my man. It’s just not logical.”

That was the quote that sent the usual suspects to their fainting couches, and signaled where GQ intended to have this profile go. As a member of the Heteronormative Patriarchy, I see no problem with that opinion. It’s never occurred to me to stick my penis in another man’s pooter, but hey!–to each his own. But then, I’ve never attended a “Gender Studies” seminar, either….

I did, however, attend a gay wedding back in the 80s, before gay weddings were cool. The “bride” was dressed as the Statue of Liberty, and the groom was decked out as Hercules. The “reverend” was from that church that advertised in the Rolling Stone classifieds. It was the second weirdest wedding I’ve ever attended.
