Cumulus Sets Date for Geraldo Rivera Syndication

As expected, veteran TV personality and journalist Geraldo Rivera’s radio program, already airing on WABC New York and KABC Los Angeles, is moving into national radio syndication with Cumulus Media Networks beginning August 13th. The syndicated radio program  will air 9am-noon weekdays. Commenting on the move Rivera said, “Despite the nation’s partisan divide, the success of the show on WABC and KABC is a clear indication that there is room in radio for someone who is not associated with a particular ideology… I’ve also developed a comfortable enough relationship with the audience over the last four plus decades in television news for listeners in a spirited way to tell me when they think I’m full of beans.” Cumulus co-COO John Dickey said “When Geraldo agreed to host shows for Cumulus stations in New York and L.A. we had a hunch there’d be national substantial listener interest in his incisive and insightful style, and now we’re thrilled that with Geraldo such a success in those two markets the show will now be available across the country.”
