NYC Radio: Joe Piscopo Gets Morning Drive At The Answer

Joe Piscopo
Salem Communications Corporation has announced today the legendary Joe Piscopo of Saturday Night Live fame is joining WNYM AM 970 The Answer in New York City as the new morning talk host, effective immediately.

Piscopo, who starred on the popular NBC program from 1980-84 has been on the air for the station doing the morning show since January 3rd. He is joined on the air by morning show producer Frank Morano and newsman Al Gatullo.

"One of the best things I get to do in this job is find talented people who have accomplished something on one stage and are ready to take on another one," said Salem VP Director of Spoken Word Format Phil Boyce. "Joe is extremely talented on the radio, bringing a level of entertainment to mix with the information that you seldom get to hear. This is a very connected morning show in the nation's top market," said Boyce.

"I have my college degree in Broadcasting. I remain a dedicated student of the most intimate medium, radio. And with legendary broadcast giants like GM Jerry Crowley and current day guru of all radio personalities past and present, Phil Boyce, this is the positively perfect storm of talk radio," said Joe. "I honestly believe that this is not only the reinvention, renaissance and revitalization of AM radio, (not to mention a totally new and exciting journey of my career) but the best thing to happen to NY radio since David Sarnoff."
