Kuby said: "I am thrilled to be back at legendary 77 WABC radio with the Curtis & Kuby show -- it is a new day for New York City and a new afternoon for New York radio!"
Kiernan said: "My first broadcasting job was in radio so this is a natural way for me to extend my connection with New Yorkers. I see this as a great way for listeners to reconnect after the workday. We're going to hit the big local stories, but we also want to plug into the conversation of the day. That can include anything from pop culture to sports to the hot topic on Twitter."
Geraldo said: "New York has always been in my bloodstream throughout my entire career understanding and discussing issues that affect everyday New Yorkers. This new honed-in focus on New York will bring to light many issues and stories that have yet to be debated. Our show will be the laboratory to find out what works and what solutions are possible."
