WBAP NewsTalk 820 AM’s Chris Salcedo interviewed a survivor from an attempted abortion who said her family was devastated by the events.

The Dallas talk show host reacted with great emotion Thursday following the news that Gov. Greg Abbott signed a bill banning most abortions in the state.

“As an abortion survivor this is very difficult for me because my twin sister did not make it,” said a caller who identified herself as Cynthia from Arizona. “I will tell you it doesn’t just have a profound effect on me, there would have been five of us in the family, now there are only four.”

Abbott’s bill prohibits an abortion once a heartbeat is detected. The governor tweeted that the bill ensures “the life of every unborn child with a heartbeat will be saved from the ravages of abortion.”

The caller told Salcedo that she was not raised by her mother for the first four years and that she was raised by another family.

“My father petitioned the court to have me brought back,” she told Salcedo. “My mother would sit five plates for dinner, and she would refer to it as all five of us are going somewhere. Abortion is murder, it is murder, and the mothers will always remember it.”

Salcedo thanked the woman for having the courage to share her experience with his audience.

“I’m just honored that you chose this program to call into and share such a personal gut-wrenching story that needs to be told.” 

You can listen to Chris Salcedo on WBAP NewsTalk 820 AM every weekday from 9 a – 11 am.

SiriusXM host Joe Madison and WABC77 host Greg Kelly have feuded recently over an unlikely subject: Washington D.C. museums.

Kelly recently discussed schools sending their eight grade students to Washington D.C. and the museums they visit. He then said there isn’t much worth seeing inside the African-American Museum, and your time would be better spent at the Air and Space Museum, which Madison took issue with.

“You know Greg Kelly? What an asshole,” Madison said in the clip. “Give me a damn break. I’ve been there. It’s divisive. ‘Go to the Air and Space Museum’. I’ve been there. It’s cool. You can touch a moon rock. But this is divisive. Excuse me, SiriusXM and Pandora, by the way, have an exhibit there. They have an exhibit there.”

“Does that make you want to go to the African-American Museum?”, Kelly asked. “To see some radio station’s sponsorship? That they bought off the mob? That they did some philanthropic virtue signaling? I don’t really care about that.”

He then played a clip of Madison saying you can see Chuck Berry’s Cadillac at the museum, which Kelly mocked. He then played another clip of Madison making a plea for a discussion between the pair.

“Let me tell you something, Greg Kelly,” Madison said. “If you had any brains whatsoever, damn you, call me, damn it! Call me! But you don’t have the courage to call me.”

“So I called him, and all he did was yell, and scream, and curse,” Kelly said. “He yelled. He screamed. And he cursed. What a missed opportunity for him.”

A report from Sara Fischer of Axios claims Audacy has hired bankers to explore a sale of Cadence13, one of its two podcast studios.

The company faces potential delisting by the New York Stock Exchange if its price remains at under $1 per share. The NYSE gave Audacy notice that it had six months to increase its price or face the delisting. Shares closed Friday at an all-time low of 39 cents.

Audacy purchased a stake in Cadence13, then called DGital Media, in 2017. It then purchased the remaining shares of the company in 2019, placing its valuation at approaching $50 million.

Fischer reporters Audacy would seek to sell Cadence13 at nearly double that $50 million valuation.

Cadence13 has recently launched several new podcasts, including shows by Stephen A. Smith and former NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s Dirty Mo Media.

In addition to Cadence13, Audacy also owns two other podcast studios, 2400Sports and Pineapple Street Studios.

An Audacy spokesperson told Axios “we don’t comment on rumors of this nature”.
