WABC-AM (Talkradio 77)/New York adds radio talk talent Frank Morano to host "The Frank Morano Program" every Sunday from 7-9pm starting Sunday, July 12. He'll also anchor "Morano in the Morning," weekdays from 1-5am beginning in August. His program will feature newsmakers, commentary, guests, exchanges with callers and a dose of satire. In addition, Morano presently hosts 10am-12pm weekdays on co-owned WLIR-FM/Long Island.

"Frank is one of the most entertaining young voices in talk radio today," said Red Apple Media and WABC President Chad Lopez. "We're thrilled to add Frank to our ranks as we continue to cement our place as New York's premiere news and talk station. Now more than ever, it's more important that we make sure New Yorkers know where to go for news and information."

Morano boasts a long career in talk radio, having spent the last decade at AM WNYM-AM (970 The Answer)/New York, where he produced "The Joe Piscopo Show," "The John Gambling Show" and "The Curtis Sliwa Show," in addition to being anon-air part of all three programs. Additionally, he's hosted "Morano in the Morning" on a weekly basis since 2011 and served as a substitute host on the syndicated "Mike Gallagher Show."

Morano will continue to serve as a producer and on-air contributor to "The Cats Roundtable," which is heard every Sunday morning from 8:30-10am and is hosted by John Catsimatidis, the owner of Red Apple Media. Before joining AM 970, Morano produced Curtis & Kuby, as well as a variety of other programs on WABC, where he was probably best-known for his on-air coverage of the four trials of John A. (Junior) Gotti.

"Joining the regular on-air lineup at 77WABC is the culmination of everything I've worked for since I was eight years old. I'm thrilled to work with some of the best talk talents in the country and for a radio station dedicated to quality live and local talk, at a time when it often seems in short supply," said Morano. "I'm committed to working as hard as I possibly can to deliver to New Yorkers the information they need to get through their day, along with insights and commentary representing every point of view. This will be a talking point free show, which I hope will be entertaining and unpredictable."

"Frank has already contributed a great deal towards furthering civic discourse in New York. To have him back on WABC is a major coup for us and we know he'll be an essential building block in making radio fun again", added WABC Senior VP/Programming Dave LaBrozzi. "We are incredibly honored that he is joining our team and look forward to working with him."
