“Coast” was dropped by WABC (770 AM) two weeks ago for the Doug McIntyre show, which WABC program director Laurie Cantillo called “a better fit” in discussing the kinds of current and political topics dealt with by other WABC hosts.
Noory said he was disappointed over the cancellation, but encouraged at the “overwhelming” support from New York listeners who see “Coast” as an alternative to almost everything else on the radio.
“I’ve gotten thousands of e-mails,” he said.
He also said he has been contacted by other city stations and expects a new deal will be worked out soon.
“Coast to Coast” is heard by about 3 million listeners, noted Noory. With 527 affiliates including KFI in Los Angeles, he has more stations than any host, except Rush Limbaugh.
