Kuby & Sliwa Displaced By Imus?

Posted in Hate Fuck Radio at 12:31 am by

In a development that’s only slightly amusing, Guardian Angels founder / Gotti nemesis Curtis Sliwa — who famously referred to the transgendered as “transformers” — might lose his radio gig to an A-list purveyor of hate fuckery.  From Newsday’s Neil Best :

Citadel Broadcasting is close to finalizing a contract with Don Imus that would bring the controversial radio host back to the airwaves, a person familiar with the discussions said Tuesday.

It was not immediately clear from where Imus would be heard, but Citadel owns WABC in New York, making its morning slot a logical destination. It also owns WPLJ-FM.

Currently the ABC spot is occupied by Ron Kuby and Curtis Sliwa (above).

Citadel and its chief executive, Farid Suleman, have been rumored to be interested in Imus for months, and WABC long has been considered a logical platform for him to launch a comeback.

He would bring along his longtime newsman, Charles McCord, who last appeared on WFAN Aug. 31. Less clear is what role, if any, a more controversial member of Imus’ old crew, Bernard McGuirk, would play. One possibility is a nonspeaking role as a producer/writer.

    My personal favorite Sliwa moment was when he asked the Japanese hot dog eating champ, Takeru Kobayashi, if not winning first prize would bring him shame at home and if he got second place would he commit suicide.

  2. David Roth says:

    I am almost 100% sure I saw Sliwa chilling in full Guardian Angels regalia outside the 86th Street 4/5/6 station in Manhattan today. Is he still wearing the satin jacket and beret? Or did Kuby get him to loosen up somewhat and appropriate that Jeff Lebowski look?

  3. Bruce Van Brunt says:

    With the popularity of Curtis and Kuby in New York I am sure that other accomodations will be made for them on WABC. It just may not be drive time.

    Nothing is set in stone. So please remain calm.

    I single handly hold Sliwa responsible for ruining Ray Trailor’s carrer with the Guardian Angel Gimmick in WCW.

  5. Baubeau says:

    Imus, with a long list of the circus, has Kuby? What’s next, a dvd list starting with Food of the Gods?

    I personally would not listen to Imus EVER, and am seriously considering boycotting ABC altogether if this happens..I boycotted Wor when they let John Gambling go, and would definitely consider shutting my radio altogether if Imus comes to Wabc…HE IS BORING!!!!!
