Joe Walsh Adds New York
Salem talker and former Chicago Congressman, Joe Walsh will now permanently be heard in New York as well as Chicago. Walsh joins AM 970 The Answer in New York, in addition to his 5-8pm CT show in Chicago on Salem's NewsTalker AM 560 The Answer. Walsh has been doing double duty since late January. Walsh began doing an evening show for Salem's Chicago station WIND about a year ago, and was quickly bumped up to afternoons.
"We looked at a lot of options for late afternoons, but once we put Joe on the air in New York something magical happened. He instantly bonded with the New York audience," said Salem VP Director Spoken Word Format Phil Boyce, who is also the regional Ops VP for the New York Region. "Joe sounds like he was born and bred in New York with a fire-breathing attitude. New York politicians need to get ready for this guy."
