Curtis Sliwa national show soon to end

In September of 2008 we told you that WTKK had hired Curtis Sliwa to be a weeknight host. Soon afterward, other stations picked him up, too, and soon it was a national show. But it will shortly be off the air. (Though he has now signed to do a show
for WNYM in New York)

Citadel/ABC pulled him off WABC this week, replacing him with John Batchelor who, for now, will be heard seven nights a week (soon to be six). For now Curtis' show continues on his affiliates like WTKK 96.9 but it will probably end around December 11. Citadel is offering the Batchelor show to affiliates; for now we have not heard if WTKK will pick it up or not but we suppose they will.

Sliwa's show focused on news and popular culture (movie reviews, celebrities, trends). It has been reported that he will start a show on WNYM (AM970) in the New York City area
on January 11, mornings, according to
North East Radio Watch

UPDATE: The show did indeed end with its Dec. 11 broadcast. At the start of the show WTKK ran a promo for the John Batchelor show which takes its place on Monday,
Dec. 14.
