SALEM News-Talk WNYM-A (AM 970 THE ANSWER)/NEW YORK is adding RADIO AMERICA's DR. JOY BROWNE for 1-4a (ET) weeknights. BROWNE hosted at crosstown WOR-A for several years; she is the fourth former WOR host to join the WNYM lineup, after JOHN GAMBLING, MIKE GALLAGHER, and LOU DOBBS.
VP/GM JERRY CROWLEY, another WOR alumnus sald, "JOY is a consummate radio pro. Her show was consistently one of the most talked about shows on WOR. Her voice was prematurely silenced across the street, as was JOHN GAMBLING, and it is my pleasure to allow her many fans to find her again."
BROWNE said, "I am beyond thrilled to be back on the air in NEW YORK and working with JOHN GAMBLING and JERRY CROWLEY and LOU DOBBS again makes it feel like coming home. We have been besieged by listeners who wanted to know where I went and how to find me, and now they will know."
SALEM Market VP PHIL BOYCE added, "The Talk radio format is nothing without superstars who have built that unique bond with their audience. Not all stations understand that anymore, so we are able to make that happen on our NEW YORK stations. The addition of JOY BROWNE proves that."
