CITADEL Talk WABC-A/NEW YORK will air a special edition of JOE CRUMMEY's 10a-noon (ET) local show on WEDNESDAY (12/8) marking the 30th anniversary of the death of JOHN LENNON. The show will focus on LENNON’s years in NEW YORK and will feature interviews with author JON WEINER ("Gimme Some Truth: The JOHN LENNON FBI Files") and Lennon’s former assistant and girlfriend MAY PANG.
Reporter SCOTT SALOTTO will check in live from Strawberry Fields in CENTRAL PARK and THE DAKOTA, LENNON's apartment building, in front of which the former BEATLE was shot and killed.
"NEW YORK CITY has an incredible history, and that includes the history of pop music. That story cannot be told without JOHN LENNON," said CRUMMEY. "JOHN LENNON is one of the greatest songwriters of all time. After he achieved unparalleled fame he chose to live in NEW YORK CITY, and this tribute will focus on his time here."
