Len Berman & Michael Riedel in the Morning:
Pundits and campaign strategists are still sifting through the post-Election Day data to make sense of the 2023 results as a lead-in to the big day in 2024. One trend that seemed to become clear in the Tri-state area is that Nassau and Suffolk Counties are now a solid red oasis in deep blue New York. Former Nassau County Executive Laura Curran joined Len and Michael this week to offer her take on the post-Election Day fallout.
It’s not easy being a sensible Republican amidst a group of left-wingers, but that’s just the case for New York City Councilwoman Vickie Paladino. Len and Michael spoke with her about just what that’s like this week.
Legendary singer-songwriter Barry Manilow is having quite a 2023: his musical “Harmony” opened on Broadway this week, he’s got an NBC holiday special coming up next month, and after a successful residency at Radio City Music Hall earlier this year, he’s announced his return to the New York City venue in 2024. He joined Len and Michael in-studio this week to talk about it all.
Will electric vehicles ever catch on? Mark spoke with economist Steve Moore this week about how they’re not selling despite dealers slashing prices.
What’s behind all the anti-Semitic protests we’re seeing across the country? Pundit Bill O’Reilly joined Mark this week, and he says it’s because President Biden hasn’t gotten completely behind Israel.
Iconic New York City disc jockey Scott Shannon joined Mark again this week to discuss a big trend in radio this time of year: the format flip of many stations to playing nothing but holiday hits.
