Mike ramblin' a few notches down the dial
Now that New York talk radio veteran John Gambling has a new home on WOR 710 months after being let go by WABC 770, the mayor also has a new home for his weekly radio show.
Bloomberg, who appeared on Gambling' show every Friday since 2002, is following him to WOR. The announcement made Wednesday at Ben Benson's Steak House in midtown Manhattan.
"When John and I were last talking on the radio about eight weeks ago, Arthur from Manhattan called in and asked what I don't like about my job. I said 'not much,' but, ever since, there's one thing I haven't liked: not being able to have intelligent conversations on the radio with John Gambling about the issues that matter most," Bloomberg said. "John is a class act in the world's greatest city. And even when we don't agree, I've always told him that he's got every right to be wrong."
The show will resume on May 16 from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. on Fridays, although the mayor will call in from Ireland on May 9.
