James Golden: Rush Limbaugh and I Clicked, After that, I Never Left

New York talk radio host James Golden shared his feelings about the late Rush Limbaugh, the hatred that was directed towards the former radio host on the day of his death, and how social justice messages have impacted the NFL. 

Golden, aka “Bo Snerdley,” served as Limbaugh’s call screener and producer for 30 years. He recently sat down with RT America’s Steve Malzberg on “Eat the Press.”

Malzberg and Golden have known each other for 40 years and worked together at WABC; Golden now has a daily show there, it’s also where he first met and worked with Rush. Golden said Limbaugh’s original agreement with WABC was that the station would supply him with a call screener and an engineer. 

“There were two other scenarios, and no one remembers them because they didn’t last long, and I was rotated onto his show,” Golden said. “Rush, and I clicked, and once that happened, I never left.” 

Golden told Malzberg that he doesn’t pay much attention to what’s written on social media. The same goes for left-leaning pundits like MSNBC’s Joy Ried, who accused Golden of providing cover for Limbaugh “to be able to do that outright racist stuff.”

“I heard about the remark, other people were outraged about the remark, and this is the first time I’ve seen it,” Golden said, referring to the clip played by Malzberg. “I could care less what a little rated show on a very low rated station with a bitter, angry woman has to say about me.” 

Golden said he didn’t watch the Super Bowl and hasn’t watched it for years. 

“After this whole kneeling business started, I was out,” Golden said. “I am tired of seeing these very well-paid people who are living the American Dream bending on a knee complaining about America. And so that was it for me. And some of them would not be able to translate their skills into anything else but football.”

SiriusXM radio host Howard Stern told “Morning Joe’s” Joe Scarborough and Willie Geist in an extensive interview that MSNBC is the network for him regarding cable news consumption. 

Stern stated that he’s a major fan of “Morning Joe” and went the extra mile to say that he and co-host Joe Scarborough share the same political idealogy.

“I watch you guys every morning,” Stern said (h/t Mediaite). “I really enjoy the show. Oddly, I agree politically with almost everything Joe says. I don’t think there’s much difference there.”

The radio host thanked MSNBC for providing him with what he loves: 24/7 news. Additionally, Stern offered a shoutout to network host Symone Sanders and stated he’s no fan of Dateline repeats.

“By the way, I want to give a shoutout to MSNBC,” Stern added. “Thank God you don’t play the old Datelines anymore on the weekends. I like news. I watch this channel exclusively for news. I tune out on the weekend. 

“It’s like all news stuff. I’m watching old Datelines. I like when you guys are onI like news 24/7, and now I find I’m getting it. I get Symone on the weekend. Big fan of hers. Symone coming on strong. What can I tell you? I know the whole lineup.”

Charges against John DePetro have been dismissed as the radio host faced a trespassing charge related to an incident over the summer during a Monday court hearing.

DePetro was arrested in mid-August outside a home on Staples Avenue in Warwick.

Police searched the house several months earlier as part of an investigation into the disappearance of Charlotte Lester, who has been missing for six months.

“I respect our justice system and respect law enforcement, specifically the Warwick PD,” DePetro said on Twitter. “The search for Charlotte Lester continues as I resume efforts searching for answers into her disappearance and holding Mark Perkins accountable for his actions against myself and Ladybug.”

The man who lives there, Mark Perkins, was also arrested the following day after he allegedly charged at DePetro with a lawnmower while DePetro was live-streaming. 

Unlike DePetro, who had his charges dismissed, Perkins still faces an assault charge, according to court records.

Champlin Broadcasting Conservative Talk The Eagle 96.9 KQOB Enid/Oklahoma City and 1640 KZLS Enid will look a little different for its listeners as the station has rebranded.

Rather than calling itself The Eagle 96.9, the radio station will now be known as Freedom 96.9 (h/t Radio Insight). KZLS started simulcasting on KQOB at the beginning of this year after the 96.9 signal was leased to Citadel and Cumulus Media for nineteen years. 

The station features a syndicated lineup, including Hugh Hewitt, Brian Kilmeade, Dan Bongino, Mike Gallagher, Joe Pags, and Bill O’Reilly. Furthermore, with the rebrand possibly comes a new addition.

Freedom 96.9 is teasing the addition of Dana Loesch to the lineup as well to enhance the rebrand further as the station begins a new chapter as it provides news/talk to the residents.
