Salem signs Curtis Sliwa


Salem Communications’ WMCA-AM “AM 970 The Apple” has hired Curtis Sliwa as its new morning host on the 50,000 watt News/Talker. Sliwa will start Monday, January 11th airing 5-9 am on “The Talk of New York.”

“Curtis Sliwa is New York Radio. Returning Curtis to mornings makes the morning commute worth listening to the radio again,” said WMCA General Manager Sean O’Neill.

Sliwa had been part of the long-running “Curtis and Kuby in the Morning” show on WABC-AM until Citadel bumped the show to make room for Don Imus.

“As of December of 2007, my goal was always to return to morning drive radio in New York City; AM 970 The Apple has provided me the opportunity to once again be live and local in New York,” Sliwa declared.
