CURTIS SLIWA will double up on SALEM Talk WNYM-A (AM 970 THE APPLE)/NEW YORK, launching a new afternoon show while continuing to host mornings. SLIWA will co-host 5-7p with journalist GERSON BORRERO starting TUESDAY (2/1) while still holding down 5-9a on the station. SLIWA and BORRERO already co-host a TV segment on cable news channel NY1.
"The idea of having a caller-driven show for New Yorkers to discuss the days' big issues makes sense," said GM SEAN O'NEILL. "CURTIS SLIWA will continue his show in the morning, so more CURTIS for New Yorkers!"
"CURTIS SLIWA & GERSON BORRERO's segment on TV is wildly popular and to bring this format to radio is terrific!," added PD PETER THIELE. "GERSON's voice in the Latino and NYC progressive communities is without parallel and thankfully now everyone will be able to get his perspective for two hours a day in a debate format with NEW YORK icon CURTIS SLIWA! NEW YORK is the most interesting city in the world, and New Yorkers deserve a live and local talk show about the issues people really care about."
