He's been trying out for over a month now, but SALEM Talk WNYM-A (AM 970 THE ANSWER)/NEW YORK is making it official and naming former NEW YORK Governor and WOR-A/NEW YORK talk show host DAVID PATERSON co-host of the station's afternoon "CURTIS AND THE GOV" show 5-7p (ET) with CURTIS SLIWA, who continues to host mornings solo as well.
"I am ecstatic at the prospect of returning to Talk radio at AM 970 THE ANSWER and co-hosting with one of the living legends in the business, CURTIS SLIWA," said PATERSON. "Working with CURTIS, as opposed to being a solo host, gives me a wider birth to air my opinions and strike up an interesting back and forth with an outspoken and articulate critic on everything."
VP and GM JERRY CROWLEY, who worked with PATERSON at WOR, said, "(T)here was no more beloved or recognizable figure in talkradio than the Gov. It's amazing how fast he became skilled behind the microphone. He created quite a buzz when he first started reading commercials and our clients simply loved it. He was a big part of our success."
