Mancow Muller, known simply as Mancow, is bringing his high energy to New York.
Muller is taking over Sunday nights from 6-9 p.m. at 77 WABC.
“Mancow is a smart, savvy entertainer who jumps through the speakers,” WABC program director Laurie Cantillo tells FishbowlNY. “Mancow and John Batchelor are a Sunday night one-two punch to jump-start the work week.”
Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, who had been hosting a show in that time slot, will remain with Citadel-owned WABC.
“Rabbi Shmuley’s new role gives him the freedom to develop and bring WABC listeners even more exclusive on-air and on-line content,” Cantillo says.
Earlier this year, the Rabbi met with the Pope, traveled to earthquake-ravaged Haiti, and broke the story of Wyclef Jean’s desire to run for president.
“We are mapping out more exciting projects with him, including this week’s blockbuster debate with Christopher Hitchens and exclusive interviews with Israeli leaders this fall,” Cantillo says.
Mancow will continue with his weekday morning show on the Talk Radio Network.
