WABC Adds More Talk Talent


TalkRadio 77WABC has added Frank Morano to its lineup. Morano will host The Frank Morano Program, 7-9 PM every Sunday evening starting July 12 and will begin anchoring Morano in the Morning, 1-5 AM weekdays beginning in August.

Morano is presently holding down the 10 AM-12N spot on WLIR-FM. Red Apple Media, parent company of WABC; recently purchased the Long Island station.

“Frank has already contributed a great deal towards furthering civic discourse in New York. To have him back on WABC is a major coup for us and we know he’ll be an essential building block in making radio fun again”, said Dave LaBrozzi, SVP, Programming WABC.

“Joining the regular on-air lineup at 77WABC is the culmination of everything I’ve worked for since I was eight years old. I’m thrilled to work with some of the best talk talents in the country and for a radio station dedicated to quality live and local talk, at a time when it often seems in short supply,” said Morano


  1. Bad move by WABC, M-F, 1-5 AM.

    Red Eye Radio is THE BEST overnight program in my 60 years as a talk radio listener. It’s informative and entertaining – though I’ve heard Frank Morano make a negative comment or two about it in the past. Perhaps he’s convinced the new owner of WABC accordingly.

    A VERY BAD move to take off Red Eye.

    • Yes, that is an unfortunate development, though certainly not unprecedented.

      However, ‘Red Eye’ fans can be absolutely certain that the show will be picked up by another station. There is no way that ‘RER’ will not be heard in media market #1.

      “Stay tuned”, as the saying goes…
