Red Apple Media and WABC-AM (TALKRADIO 77)/New York launches "The Other Side of Midnight" hosted by Frank Morano every weekday morning from 1-5am ET. The program features newsmakers, commentary, guests, exchanges with callers and a healthy dose of satire. This week, Morano welcomed former Trump adviser Roger Stone, subway vigilante Bernard Goetz, former radio talker Doug McIntyre and radio legend John Gambling. There are also regular discussions exploring the world of the paranormal, including UFOs and conspiracy theories.

In addition, Morano will continue to host a show weekdays from 10-11am ET on WLIR-FM (Talk Radio 107.1 FM) in Long Island.

"Frank has already proven to be 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. This is the city that never sleeps and New Yorkers deserve a live and local overnight show."

"I grew up listening to overnight radio," added Morano. "To me, there's nothing more intimate and more fun. There's no daypart where you can combine long form interviews, wacky topics, off the wall guests, and a bit of irreverence. When I'd fall asleep, or wake up early, listening to the likes of Alan Colmes, Brian Whitman, Art Bell, Jay Diamond and Doug McIntyre, I'd quickly find those voices becoming the soundtrack of my dreams; I was absolutely hooked. I'm hoping to give insomniacs one more reason to stay awake."

"Frank has already contributed a great deal towards furthering civic discourse in New York. Since returning to WABC, it has been a real treat to have Frank as both a fill-in and on the weekend, and we know he'll be an essential building block in making radio fun again," said WABC Senior Vice President of Programming Dave LaBrozzi. "This show further demonstrates our commitment to making WABC New York's live and local news talk leader."
