Sean Hannity is at the top of the talk radio game. Last week, the Fox News star who also hosts a popular nationally syndicated radio show, topped the annual “Talkers Heavy Hundred” published by Talkers.com. 

Hannity’s show is distributed by Premiere Networks and is the second most-listened-to-commercial radio show with about 15 million listeners per week.

Talkers said the total number of listeners that a particular show garners is not the only criteria that judges look for. The website shows are measured by “courage, effort, impact, longevity, potential, ratings, recognition, revenue, service, talent and uniqueness.”

“We acknowledge that it is as much as art as science, and that the results are arguable,” the magazine added.

The annual list is considered to be a subjective power ranking of the nation’s top hosts.

Dan Bongino: CDC Appears Confused Over Mask Mandate

Bongino’s heated comments came during his nationally syndicated radio show Tuesday as he questioned why the government agency keeps backtracking on its stance on masks and vaccinated people.

Right-wing radio host Dan Bongino criticized a decision by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that reverses the course on vaccinated Americans having to wear a mask indoors.

Bongino’s heated comments came during his nationally syndicated radio show Tuesday as he questioned why the government agency keeps backtracking on its stance on masks and vaccinated people.

“The CDC appears confused yet again,” Bongino said. “First, they said no masks, then they said masks, then they said mandate masks, then they said two masks, and then there were people in the mainstream media that were asking how many masks can we safely wear.”

CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said new data shows the delta variant behaves “uniquely differently” from its predecessors and could make vaccinated people infectious.

“If these things work, the face diapers, then why didn’t they work?”
Walensky used the new mandate as an opportunity to encourage people to get vaccinated while reiterating that the new guidance affects K-12 schools who must now wear a mask indoors, including teachers, staff, students, and visitors, regardless of vaccination status.

“You are sticking kids in these face diapers, and you have yet to produce a shred of damn evidence that these things work,” Bongino exclaimed.

Radio personality Dr. Sebastian Gorka inked a multi-year extension with Salem Radio Network. The America First host began his stint at the network nearly two years ago.

The Hungarian native served as Deputy Assistant to the President in the administration of U.S. President Donald Trump.

“Despite an incredibly hard 18 months for America, conservative talk radio is stronger than it has ever been,” Gorka said. “I am so grateful to Salem, my superb team, and our amazing listeners for their loyalty and enduring love of country.”

Gorka has briefed the Central Intelligence Agency, the Defense Intelligence Agency, the U.S. Navy Seals, and the Commandant of the Marine Corps. He also served as an expert for the Department of Justice during the Boston Bombing trial and testified before Congress on the threat of Global Jihadism.

“Dr. Gorka has proven to be a natural on the radio. His insight into current events, his courageous stands on the issues, and his unique sense of humor have blended together to make this one of the best shows in the Salem lineup,” said Salem senior vice president for spoken-word Phil Boyce.

Former 77 WABC host turned politician, Curtis Sliwa, wants the city to cover expenses for anyone who saves a cat or a dog from being euthanized at a city shelter.

The Republican mayoral nominee told the New York Post that he wants to give people a $1,000 “Pet Snap Card” that they could use for food, supplies, and related expenses at local stores.

“This Pet SNAP Card will help promote and facilitate adoptions throughout New York City by easing the financial expenses of pets,” he told the paper. “It works in the same way as the traditional SNAP program except it can only be used toward pet expenses, food, supplies, vet care, etc.”

Sliwa told voters that he wants to get rid of any animal shelter that kills pets.

“I will continue to make it one of the key campaign planks,” he said during a press conference. “Part of our mandate is that when I become mayor, there will be no-kill shelters in the city of New York.”

Sliwa will face off against Democratic mayoral nominee Eric Adams in November.
