Audio: Michael Savage Removed From Air On Day of Presidential Debate

19

American radio host Michael Alan Weiner, better known by his professional name Michael Savage, was knocked off air today from WABC radio in New York.

Calling the effort to bounce him from his flagship station a “coup,” Savage, the host of The Savage Nation, a nationally syndicated talk show with an audience of over 20 million listeners on 400 stations across the United States, said that he won’t stand for being abused by the people he’s made so much money for.

After he was sent off air, Savage lamented that those who replaced him gloated that a coup had been carried out.

He indicated that he believed that it was done purposely on this all-important day, the day of the first presidential debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.

He was later knocked off the air from 400 stations nationally.

He was replaced on WABC by the show featuring Curtis Sliwa of the Guardian Angels and Attorney Ronald L. Kuby.

“I’m one of the most important voices in the conservative movement and have been for 22 years,” he said after being tossed off air. “And I will say once again: I am outraged by this maneuver on the part of the company that makes a fortune off my talent and I will not tolerate it.”

Savage is number 1 in ratings in New York, making the decision to cut him off air very surprising.

Savage was born Michael Alan Weiner in the Bronx, New York, one of three children of Benjamin and Rae Weiner, Jewish emigrants from Russia.

  1. Just goes to show that to some liberals money isn’t everything hopefully they get taken down by hashem who despises immorality and habitual liars

  2. I would not know why any social minded jew would invest more than 20 minutes a month or more to listen to such a bragging small minded wind tunnel of lost wealth for their sanity as a jew. Seriously, are we in an age of jews who want to be perfect minded great men with Torah that just think that the by word of glory is red state?

    Clearly we are missing the gleanings of our own imagination.

    Scary.

  3. A very dumb business move by the owners of his show. Radio is all about ratings. If you have it, you are successful. If you don’t, you are a loser and you get fired.
    Not sure this is a true story. It’s not posted on Drudge Report.

  4. So how is it that Rush, Levin, Beck and all the others continued? Breach of contract doesn’t even measure this as a breach of Constitution Amendment One!

  5. Will admit liked him when I was a bit younger in my 20’s. Now that I am in my early 40’s and he isn’t even on in drive time but going on you tube and just listening to him he panders to anti-Semites and pushes conspiracy theories and Alex Jones and I have to think his ratings on the radio have gone down and WABC had enough of him and some of the vile things he spouts (like calling those who were for the Iraq war war criminals)

    At the same time he says Jews should celebrate their holidays “quietly” he praises Christians for being in your face about their holidays. I mean you can agree or disagree with whether religion should be in your face which I for one actually am not a fan of religion being in your face but that Savage for one faith it is ok and while the other it is not ok shows his double standard and his pandering to those who dislike Jews as part of his audience.

    All I can say is good riddance and I suspect despite what Savage things part of the reason he was pulled is many complaints have come in from various sponsors and his ratings are not so great as he thinks they are vs Hannity and others and WABC wants to try something else.

    • Actually I now find out he was just pulled from NYC and maybe they wanted more of a local flavor for the debates coming up. And his talk was just too polemic. He could have just let it be and instead acted like a big cry baby which he is much less important then he thinks he is and all you have to do is go on You Tube and see how many toxic followers he has who comment on you tube. who don’t like Jews and I guess feel Savage doesn’t go “far enough” but he attracted them in the first place for some of the stuff he says that is pure conspiracy nonsense. It may have not even been such a big deal other then Savage making a big deal out of it when for all we know they wanted a local perspective on the debate and to Savage it is all I am a victim they are out to get me. Oh boo hoo.

  7. While the GOP guys are listening to Savage and Hannity, the liberals are reading the newspapers. I wonder if anyone realizes how assumed these poor minds have become in our society. Its bad.

  8. Actually my hunch was right as NY wanted special coverage and decided to have Curtis and Kuby 12 to5. Savage was never pulled off the air just had c and k live from Hostra at that time. Victim politics at its worst. See snoops and the announcement from c and k before his show Monday.
