SALEM Talk WNYM-A (AM 970 THE ANSWER)/NEW YORK is adding a new show with former NEW YORK Mayoral candidate and RED APPLE GROUP/GRISTEDES FOODS CEO JOHN CATSIMATIDIS. The weekly show, "THE CATS ROUNDTABLE," will air SUNDAYS 9-10a (ET), beginning MARCH 16th, with former NEW YORK Mayor RUDOLPH GIULIANI and former Governor GEORGE PATAKI as initial guests.
CATSIMATIDIS said, “I’m incredibly excited about this. After the Mayor’s race, I was struck by how many New Yorkers from all walks of life were anxious to continue the conversation about how to improve our city. As a lifelong fan of local radio, I’m convinced that this is the best way to do that. People are anxious to hear more about some of the issues we raised during the campaign, like how to keep crime low, how to improve our schools and a new approach to transportation. That’s what we’ll do each week”.
SALEM VP Dir./Spoken Word Format PHIL BOYCE added, "I have known JOHN for a long time, and know he has a huge heart for this city and so many ideas on how we can do things even better. This will be a great showcase for those ideas, and I am thrilled to have him join THE ANSWER."
GM JERRY CROWLEY said, “JOHN is simply one-of-a-kind. I’ve come to consider him NEW YORK’s First Citizen. The fact that he knows and has worked with nearly every newsmaker in the world will allow his show to have access to short of high-profile guests most shows can only dream of. With JOHN CATSIMATIDIS, our station is keeping its promise to our city to be NEW YORK’s home to the best live and local talk.”
