In honor of his 40th anniversary in New York radio, Bob Grant is being honored by 77 WABC-AM on Monday.

Calling it Bob Grant Day, the station, which Grant calls home for a third time, will have a salute to the legendary talk show host.

Mark Simone hosts the two-hour on-air roast of Grant from 10 a.m. to noon.

Listeners will hear some of Grant’s favorite memories, plus live tributes from Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, Mike Huckabee, and Monica Crowley.

The station also says you can expect some surprise guests from the history of New York radio.

Fans are welcome to call and share their memories of Grant.

Bob Grant Day will be streamed online at www.wabcradio.com. Additionally, WABC will produce a behind-the-scenes video of the event that will be available later Monday on their website.

Grant, 81, started the New York portion of his illustrious career on September 20, 1970 at WMCA. He had a memorable stint doing afternoons at WABC from 1984-1996, along with two gigs down the dial at WOR-AM.

Grant returned to WABC in September 2009 to host Sunday afternoons from noon to 2 p.m.
