NYC Radio: WABC To Launch New Doug McIntyre Show

Doug McIntyre
KABC 790 AM Morning Personality Doug McIntyre is taking over the 5 PM hour at sister-station WABC 770 AM in NYC.

He'll replece Rita Cosby, who reportedly gave-up her weekday show to concentrate on other committments.  Cosby will nost be hosting a weekend show on WABC.

"Right Now With Doug McIntyre" launches Wednesday, March 4 via his at-home studio.

Cumulus says the new, hour-long talk show will be “focused on the most important stories and personalities in New York.  As a native New Yorker, McIntyre brings with him a deep understanding of the Tri-State area's most pressing issues and how they relate to the national headlines of the day.”

McIntyre has appeared on WABC in the past.  He created the “Red Eye Radio” show in 2000, first as a one-time post-election recap and then as a local overnight show in Los Angeles, expanding to become a nationally syndicated program in early 2010 with WABC as one of its flagship stations.

He will continue as host of “McIntyre in the Morning” on KABC.  McIntyre says, “This is a real homecoming for me and I am genuinely thrilled to be returning to 77 WABC.  There is no more dynamic and insane city on the planet than New York.  The Tri-State area is like a nation unto itself, with its own politics, its own culture and its own sense of humor and I look forward to highlighting the city's unique stories again.”
