77 WABC from 10 AM-noon weekdays. Crummey, most recently a top-rated host on KTAR-FM and KFYI-AM in Phoenix, has also hosted on such talk giants as KFI and KABC in Los Angeles. Born in Albany, he worked as EJ Crummey at WAPP and WNBC, where he was the lead-in to Imus in the Morning.
In a statement on the WABC website, Program Director Laurie Cantillo says Crummey has a record of ratings success and is a “unique and creative talent who jumps through the speakers". General Manager Steve Borneman notes the addition of Crummey and New York Weekends "demonstrate 77 WABC's commitment to offer the best in national and local programming".
Hosted from the studios of 77 WABC, The Joe Crummey Show will be a New York centric show that's conversational, fun, fast-paced, and unpredictable. While politics will be a central theme, Crummey is also fascinated by pop culture, social trends, and the challenges of parenting a high-energy 10-year-old.
