Geraldo Rivera, who helms “Geraldo at Large” Sundays on the Fox News Channel, next Monday will expand his daily activities to include a two-hour live radio talk show beamed out of Los Angeles, added to a similar but separate program that recently debuted in New York, notes Grumpy Editor.
That means four hours of live programming daily.
That’s a lot of chatter behind the microphone. But Rivera is up to it.
He started Monday-to-Friday radio on Jan. 3, 10 a.m. to noon on WABC, New York. Next Monday he goes airborne over KABC in Los Angeles, also 10 a.m. to noon. (Both are local times.)
But the programs are not syndicated and Geraldo originates both from New York.
NASDAQ-listed Cumulus Media, Inc., in broadcasting partnership with Rivera, says Rivera’s shows, simply called "Geraldo" and welcoming listener calls, “focus on the day's biggest and most talked-about topics, ranging from national politics to shocking crimes to social issues.”
Rivera adds, "I've said it before and I'll say it again: my slogan is, 'I’m Geraldo and I’m not always right.'"
With his WABC debut, New York-born Rivera beams, “This is a lifetime dream come true, hosting a talk radio show in (New York) where everyone has an opinion on everything.”
On the other coast on KABC, Rivera is familiar with the City of Angels (and the thinking of its sun-drenched inhabitants) where he maintained a residence for 25 years.
