He calls himself Walter Sterling on the air at WPHT in Philadelphia, where he hosts a 10pm to 1am Sunday night talk show. Westwood One is taking Walter Sabo and his program into national syndication. Sabo’s show is a mix of lifestyle, entertainment, and social conversation, according to the network. WPHT-AM Philadelphia will continue to be the flagship, and the show is being added to WLS-AM in Chicago, WMAL-AM/FM in Washington DC, KDKA-AM in Pittsburgh and KMOX-AM/St. Louis.
“What two best friends talk about is not trivial, it’s a very big deal. That’s why Sterling on Sundays transitions the listener into the week with conversation about troubles at work, celebrity gossip, and why the engine light never goes out,” says Sabo. “The audience is highly engaged and very diverse – from young parents who only have alone time later in the day, to medical professionals on their way to work, and other shift workers and late-nighters.”
Suzanne Grimes, EVP, Corporate Marketing, Cumulus Media and President, Westwood One said, “Walter is a legendary radio figure who not only knows our industry inside and out but also has a unique handle on what people really care about. His perspective on today’s societal connections is what makes Sterling on Sunday captivating and relatable to all audiences. We are proud to have Walter transition all of us into the week.”
