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. I hate this lydia person where did this know it all come from put Michael Savage back cats making big mistakes at abc live Greg Kelly Guiliani too!

  2. Good Lord, folks. It’s just radio…I know y’all ain’t married to it, are you? You folks sound like somebody stole your infant from.the stroller in the grocery store. Quit all the whining already. Radio stations make format and show changes all the time. Just find something to listen to that you enjoy. With digital media and online listening, your choices are unlimited. Everybody, and most syndicated shows like RER has a website and streaming available innreal time. You can still get the show y’all are talking about in this post though multiple apps, including iHeart and TuneIn apps. Enough of the ,-b***ching and moaning like little babies.

  3. Why waste words. For God sake bring back Eric Harley and Gary McNamara!!! Your way of judging your listenership must be idiotic. Your guy from midnight on is almost as boring as npr. Please for so many people get smart.

  4. Bring back Red Eye Radio!! While the election was being stolen from Donald Trump, Frank Morano is discussing plastic bags and old movies! Was this just a money decision on John Catsimetides part? What a cheapskate! Correct this mistake. Do the right thing.

  5. you made not a mistake because WABC 770am NY but a conscious decision just as when did you deliberately let Rush and Sean go….your blind out of your left eye, all of you; in the wake of what you did came NY Post’s banishment of Biden Story. You, WABC Management, think we are all being fooled. China in forewarning to our DNC, let loose this virus. The Left was so ready organized and pre-prepared for this so-called shock and surprise of Covid, yet what endued was, cash bail was eliminated weeks before this pre-coordinated paid for murder of Mr. George Floyd, which set in motion, exactly what the Left’s Treasonous Acts that followed. this resistance of governors and intended affects upon our local state economies was all planned and pre-coordinated. After this Nov election your expected urban terror plot shall cement my thesis. if the Right takes up arms and does exactly what your leftist BLM and Antifa started; we shall finish. It is not us on the right who should be living in fear next but all of you on the left. How dare you Godless atheists even attempt and think we will take your appalling traitorous behavior go undetected. You will all pay for this; your arrogance won’t let you see how and why you shall…advantage us…I never served in US Armed Forces but with the direction of our local police i will gladly take up arms and hunt you all down and bring you all to justice. Comey Brenan Clapper McCabe Hillary (who had killed that poor Bernie supporter) Obama the Biden Crime Family members; shall all deserve to be hung upon the Tree of Liberty that somebody once said needs to be fertilized every once in a while by the blood of tyrants: FOOD FOR THOUGHT for all listed…

  6. What were you guys thinking. I really enjoyed red eye with Gary and Eric. I tried listening to the replacement and was more confused You lost me as a listener

  7. I agree with everyone who is upset with the loss of RER. This new guy is horrible and has an attitude that he is somehow better than Eric and Gary. I use to not mind waking up during the night. Not so anymore.

  8. Relief!… I used to try to wake up during the wee hours just to listen to RedEye for an hour or two before I had to actually wake up for work,,,, Now I can sleep through the night knowing I’m not missing anthing..sorry /redeye is gone….what a shame

  9. Absolutely LOST THIS LISTENER. Morano is JV at best, not one shred of comparison to the elite, bright, insightful, thoroughly prepared RED EYE RADIO – Gary and Eric. If WABC is so dense as to not remedy this huge error, I wish WABC the consequences of their faulty uninformed choice. LISTENERS TO RER – continue to boycott WABC.

  10. I’m done with WABC. Red Eye radio is far better than the new program.
    I also didn’t appreciate the new personality bashed those he replaced.

    • Are you kidding you took.red eye radio off very dumb. I thought they would be back after vacation. Who the hell wants to hear about aliens? I am sorry if you do not put them back i will not listen. Really what is wrong with whoever does these stupid changes,?

  11. Boy do we miss Eric and Gary. They both are intelligent and will be missed. I have turned off WABC. Hope WOR or another station picks them up so that we New Yorkers can hear them at night.

  12. Frank Morano’s new show is horrible. He has no interviewing skills. His topics of discussion are of no interest. The hosts of RER were incredibly intelligent. Listened every morning to Gary and Eric. WABC lost a viewer with Frank Morano replacing Red Eye. Hope another NY station will pick up Red Eye.

  13. I love red eye radio! Why the hell would you make such a dumb move! Every move you made so far really enhanced WABC but this was not one of the good moves!!BRING BACK RER

  14. I dont know what you people are talking about. Frank Morano’s first night in depth discussion about whether or not it is ok to use a beach towel when you take a shower was riveting radio! I was on the edge of my seat through that stimulating conversation.

  15. Boy am I going to miss gary & eric overnight, they covered things happening all over the US ofA .plus things around their area ,and their lives.Iam up almost every night at this time of the night to listen to the radio.live in NJ.tried morano and it is just not up to par with redeye radio.lost another listner.

  16. I will listen to Red Eye radio where ever it ends up. Gary and Eric are funny and very entertaining. For now I will listen on the internet through the Red Eye Radio app.

  17. I hope Red Eye With Gary and Eric are put back on the air – Not listening to Morano CANNOT compare to Gary and Eric – They are the best.

  18. 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…
