Former NY Gov. Paterson Joins AM 970 The Answer
Salem Communications Corporation has added former New York Governor David Paterson to the airstaff on New York's AM 970 The Answer. Paterson now co-hosts the 5pm to 7pm time slot with Curtis Sliwa. Sliwa will continue to host the morning show solo, from 6am to 9am.
Paterson, who hosted the afternoon drive program on WOR until the end of last year, has always been a fan of talk radio, and was delighted to have the chance to get back on the air in New York and New Jersey. "I am ecstatic at the prospect of returning to talk radio at AM 970 The Answer and co-hosting with one of the living legends in the business, Curtis Sliwa," said Paterson. "Working with Curtis, as opposed to being a solo host, gives me a wider birth to air my opinions and strike up an interesting back and forth with an outspoken and articulate critic on everything."
Paterson was a member of the state legislature in Albany representing the New York City area, then became Lt. Governor and later Governor upon the resignation of former governor Elliott Spitzer. He served as the 55th governor of New York from 2008 to 2010.
AM 970 The Answer Vice President and General Manager, Jerry Crowley who first hired Paterson when he was GM of WOR, said "there was no more beloved or recognizable figure in talk radio than the Gov. It's amazing how fast he became skilled behind the microphone. He created quite a buzz when he first started reading commercials and our clients simply loved it. He was a big part of our success."
