Casey Kasem Memorial Imbued with the Spirit of Humanitarianism

ShutterstockCaseyKasemAll three children from Casey Kasem‘s first marriage were at a memorial held in Los Angeles over the weekend for their legendary dad. And it is one of those offspring, Kerri Kasem, who has delivered a most inspiring quote.

Here’s what she told New York Daily News west coast bureau chief Nancy Dillon:

“The one thing I heard over and over from people was that the memorial inspired them to live a better life and be a better person. Everyone got to hear about my dad’s humanitarian work and what a great father and friend he was.”

Art Bell Returns to the Radio Airwaves

George Noory and Coast to Coast, rulers of the late night paranormal AM radio airwaves, have some new, familiar competition. Art Bell, creator of the Coast to Coast franchise, is back on the air via SiriusXM starting tonight with Art Bell’s Dark Matter, a live three-hour call-in show.

The program can be heard on Channel 104 (a.k.a. Indie) from 10:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. ET / 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. PT. Bell will host the show from his home studio in Pahrump, Nevada, not too far from the recently officially confirmed Area 51.

Vegas Journo Remembers the UFO Congressional Hearings That Almost Were

What nearly happened in Vegas. Not quite the famous local tourism slogan, but rather a perfect summary of the nugget at the center of a delightful Las Vegas City Life op ed by Peabody Award-winning KLAS-TV Channel 8 reporter George Knapp (pictured).

Picking up on the UFO “Citizen Hearing on Disclosure” event being held this week at Washington’s National Press Club, Knapp says that informal PR push is likely to be the closest thing we see in our lifetimes to an Area 51-focused Congressional hearing. But it’s not because elected officials weren’t once interested:

Only a handful of people know this, but in the late ’90’s there was a concerted effort to hold a limited-focus set of congressional hearings into UFO cases involving national-security matters. The impetus behind the proposed hearings originated right here in Las Vegas, the brainchild of some pretty smart and influential people.

George Noory Expands His Reach as King of All Paranormal Media

Shuttling back and forth between LA and St. Louis, George Noory is a very busy man. His syndicated overnight radio show Coast to Coast AM is heard on KFI AM 640 and more than 560 other radio stations. And just about every other weekend, or so it seems, he is touching down at a special event somewhere to moderate a leading-edge paranormal discussion.

This month, Noory has added Beyond Belief, a one-hour weekly live-audience talk show streaming on GAIAM TV. The first episode December 14 featured author, filmmaker and genetically modified food expert Jeffrey Smith; for last week’s second installment, Noory chatted with Nostradamus expert John Smith; and next he will welcome ghost hunter Joshua Hunter.

Another Memorable Conway-to-Noory Hand Off

In recent weeks, KFI AM 640 evening personalities Tim Conway Jr. and George Noory have become much chattier at the cusp of the 10 p.m. PT hour. That’s when Conway checks in with Noory, host of Coast to Coast AM, to find out what choice topics lie ahead. Noory’s syndicated program is bigger than ever, having just welcomed its 560th station affiliate; on any given night, the inquisitive host (pictured) is broadcasting from either LA or St. Louis.

It started when Noory—whose father recently passed away—talked very intimately one night about his personal life (wives, ex-wives, etc.) After that particular segment was over, Tim Conway Jr. Show newsman Aron Bender marveled that he had learned more about their KFI stablemate from that one conversation than from all previous chats combined.

Kennedy Collector is Friends with Lee Harvey Oswald’s Widow

Last night, syndicated radio show host George Noory devoted his entire “Coast to Coast” program to the anniversary of the assassination of JFK. Among his guests were author Mark Lane, who points to a mountain of evidence to support his argument that it was the CIA that conspired to kill the President.

Today, it is the turn of LA based CNN entertainment reporter Alan Duke to chime in with some unique anniversary spin. He profiles Keya Morgan, the largest private collector of JFK photos, for an assignment that led to a very rare secondary source:

Although she rarely gives interviews, Marina Oswald felt strongly enough about her friendship with Morgan that she agreed to speak with CNN by phone from her Texas home. “Keya is a good kid. Let’s put it that way,” Oswald said. “He has a good heart, and he’s compassionate and puts all his 150% in it.”

Harvey Levin Now Officially the King of All Media

Thanks to a new deal with Premiere Networks that went live June 20, Harvey Levin has crossed over into the final, retro media frontier: radio.

TMZ Radio airs Monday through Friday as two separate one-minute installments, with Levin touching on the day’s latest celebrity news headlines. It can be heard locally on KBIG-FM and via some 50 other stations around the country. Befitting TMZ’s status as a one-man brand, the “About Harvey Levin” section in today’s press release clocks in at 345 words, longer than the body-text portion of the release.

Radio Host George Noory Crashes Cancer Author’s Website

Ahead of last night’s three-hour block with Coast to Coast AM radio show host George Noory, author Ty Bollinger (Cancer: Step Outside the Box) warned his web hosting company that there might be a spike in traffic at CancerTruth.net because of of his appearance on the popular program. The hosting company assured Bollinger they could handle it.

Sure enough, not long into the first hour of the author’s discourse on LA based Noory’s widely syndicated show, inbound hits to CancerTruth.net from interested listeners took out the site. At press time, the URL is still down.

WABC-AM Winning the Overnight with ‘Red Eye’

WABC logo.jpg

77 WABC is winning the overnight thanks to Doug McIntyre’s Red Eye Radio.

On February 8, the talk stalwart made the switch from Coast to Coast with George Noory.

In the most recent PPM results, McIntyre’s Citadel Media-syndicated show is number one in highly sought after demographics–men 18-49 and 18-34.

The show, which airs from 1-5 am seven nights a week on WABC-AM, also registered a number two position for men 25-54.

“There was a clear opening for an overnight show that’s live, entertaining, and issues-driven,” Laurie Cantillo, WABC Program Director, tells FishbowlNY. “Doug McIntyre has a humorous and engaging style that’s perfect for the late night/early bird crowd, particularly in a city that never sleeps like New York. As the ratings indicate, his show is on fire, particularly with younger listeners.”

Following the national overnight broadcast, since the fall of 2009, McIntyre hosts the 5 a.m. hour exclusively for WABC.

That show, which is the lead-in for Imus in the Morning, is tops among men 18-34 and men 25-54.

“[It] has been a consistently strong ratings performer, particularly in the men 25-54 demo, so his ratings success is not a surprise,” Cantillo says.
