Phil Boyce, Former 77 WABC Programmer, Joins Salem Communications

By Jerry Barmash Comment

Phil Boyce, who enjoyed a long run as 77 WABC program director, has been named VP of Salem Communications Spoken Word Format.

One of those stations under his jurisdiction is New York’s The Apple/970 WNYM. The talk station’s morning and afternoon host, the only local weekday presence, is Curtis Sliwa.

That means Boyce will once again be connected to Sliwa. It was Boyce, who teamed Sliwa and Ron Kuby for morning drive at WABC in 1996.

Boyce, who also ran the ABC Radio and Citadel News/Talk division, according to All Access, starts in the new position today.
