WABC Gives Radio Host Joe Crummey a Homecoming

WABC is giving the coveting 10 a.m-noon slot to Joe Crummey. The shift had been hosted by Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, and more recently Mark Simone.

The show, which sits between Don Imus and Rush Limbaugh, is the only non-syndicated daytime show on the station. Program director Laurie Cantillo tells FishbowlNY it will remain that way.

Crummey, a veteran of New York radio, was a DJ at WAPP and WNBC in the 1980s.

He changed career paths by becoming a talk show host at such stations as KFI and KABC in Los Angeles.

“Joe likes to call himself ‘an average Joe with a Crummey radio,’ but the truth is he’s anything but,” Cantillo says. “Joe is a deep thinker who finds fresh ways of looking at topics.” She says that’s what makes Crummey’s style unique.

The show, expected to focus on everything from politics to pop culture, starts on Monday, October 11.
