John Batchelor Show Cancelled
WABC radio is cancelling the John Batchelor Show.
It's hard to imagine them being so stupid. For starters, it has been the number one show in NYC during its time slot for some time now.
Second, its been the highest quality program on the entire station. Where as most of the other hosts are right-wing screamers, the Batchelor Show has been a nonpartisan show dealing with international and national news in great depth. I don't think that any single program, including anything on the BBC or PBS can touch it for quality.
The John Batchelor Show will be on through this Friday on WABC-77AM, 10pm-1am. Give him a listen when you get the chance.
Batchelor won't be gone for long. It's WABC's loss. To hell with them.
