Nationally syndicated talk show host and founder of Outkick.com Clay Travis has never shied away from offering strong opinions on controversial topics in the world of news and sports. Though he was on vacation in Cancun from his radio program, which is being hosted by Jonas Knox until Travis returns to the studio, that did not stop Travis from taking to twitter to criticize CNN’s Chris Cuomo and his reasoning for not covering his brother (New York Governor) Andrew Cuomo’s sex scandals.

Chris Cuomo offered an explanation to viewers as to why he can’t cover his brother during the opening of his show Cuomo Primetime Monday evening.

“You have always been straight with me, so let me be straight with you,” Cuomo said. “Obviously, I am aware of what is going on with my brother. And obviously, I cannot cover it because he is my brother (presumably due to conflict of interest). Now, of course, CNN has to cover it. They have covered it extensively, and they will continue to do so. I have always cared very deeply about these issues, and profoundly so. I just wanted to tell you that.”

Cuomo’s explanation did not hold water with Travis, however.

“Patron saint of the coronabros Andrew Cuomo, has now been accused of sexual harassment by a third woman, prompting Chris Cuomo to make an on-air explanation of why he isn’t covering this issue,” Travis wrote on Twitter. “As bad as this is for the Cuomos, it may be worse for CNN.”

According to a CNN press release though, the network is in good shape, claiming that January 2021 was the most watched month in the network’s history. That did not stop Travis, however, from going after Cuomo and claiming the situation was a disaster for CNN.

“CNN spent all of last year turning Andrew Cuomo into a COVID superhero via hits on his brother’s show despite all the facts showing he’d done the worst job of any elected official in America. Now Chris suddenly can’t cover him? Total disaster for CNN.”

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.

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.
