Citadel Media is resurrecting talker Doug McIntyre’s overnight “Red Eye Radio” launching the show on his present and former stations, Citadel outlets WABC-A New York and KABC-A Los Angeles, starting Monday (2/8). McIntyre hosted “Red Eye Radio” for KABC before moving to WABC’s morning drive pre-Don Imus and most recently the hour before Imus.
WABC PD Laurie Cantillo said, “Doug McIntyre’s Red Eye Radio is a refreshing live alternative to traditional overnight fare, which is canned, conspiratorial, and just plain dull. Our listeners love Doug and the fun, hip approach he brings to the news.”
KABC PD David A. Hall added, “I used to hate to compete with his shows. They had huge ratings and audiences that were way above average in listener loyalty. Doug McIntyre’s Red Eye Radio is a fabulous program and a terrific alternative to UFO and ghost shows.”
The new syndicated radio version of the show will air Monday through Sunday 1-5a ET.
