Sliwa Kicked Off WABC
Degenerate Liar Curtis Sliwa has been kicked off flagship New York City radio station 77 WABC AM and will be replaced by talker John Batchelor effective Monday, November 30th.
Sliwa has been broadcasting on-and-off the conservative New York City newstalk radio station for 18 years, according to The NY Daily News.
“WABC and I were not able to agree on an extension of my contract,” Sliwa told The News. He would not comment further on why he got the boot from the station. WABC Radio PD Laurie Cantillo had a different perspective on the issue, telling reporters that Sliwa “expressed a desire to host between 6am-7pm and we don’t have any openings at this time.”
The red-bereted jackass will continue his weekday nightly syndicated show from WABC studios for now. Cantillo confirms that Sliwa will broadcast from the studios for the next two weeks.
The outlook of Sliwa’s syndicated show looks dim, as Batchelor, who already has a weekend program, simply cannot broadcast seven-days-a-week. Syndication company Citadel is desperate for cash and will syndicate Batchelor’s show against Sliwa, who is a numbskull compared to Batchelor on global events.
Rumor has it that Sliwa will be replacing current morning show host Bill Bennett at local WNYM The Apple (AM 970).
“Nothing is signed,” Sliwa said.
If that doesn’t work out, Sliwa will continue his “Curtis Cast” on UBATV.com, where he is tight with the management.
This is not the first time Sliwa has been fired from the New York conservative talk giant. He was fired from the station back in 1992 after being mysteriously shot and left for dead on the streets of downtown Manhattan. Political connections landed him a spot on then-New-York-City-owned WNYC AM, much to the chagrin of its employees and listeners. Sliwa then returned to WABC AM several years later and paired with leftist lawyer Ron Kuby in 2000 for a very successful morning show, only to be bumped from the line up for a resurrected Don Imus in 2007.
Sliwa, who was heard filling for conservative Sean Hannity today, was asked about the shake-up by a caller.
“I’ve had better days,” Sliwa responded with a sigh.
