Fox News host Sean Hannity welcomed former lawmaker Anthony Weiner onto his show during the Monday broadcast of “Hannity.” 

Weiner is returning to the public eye after serving a prison sentence for sending sexually explicit photos of himself to a minor. Hannity asked Weiner if he’s changed and become a different person since serving his time for his crime. 

“I guess the first question that I have is you pled guilty, Anthony, to the sending obscene materials to a young girl, a 15-year-old girl,” Hannity said. “You pled guilty. You served jail time. Have you changed? Are you a different person?”

“Well, I think so,” Weiner said. “I don’t think anyone can go through that kind of experience, and I think this is probably true of people who have been through other types of adversity. I don’t think you go through that type of experience and don’t emerge changed.”

Hannity would cut Weiner off following the response to his question. “Wait a minute, that is an obscure answer, ‘I think so,’” Hannity said. “Either you know when your heart if you changed, or you know when your heart that you didn’t change.”

“Can you assure people, because you are going to now try and draw in an audience, and they’re going to want to know if you’ve changed or not? Have you changed?”

Weiner then went on to answer Hannity’s follow-up question. The former lawmaker made it known that he’s not looking to persuade anyone that he’s changed since being released from prison three years ago. 

“I am not out to persuade you or anyone else that I have changed. I mean, I am doing a radio show, and people can call in and then ask me questions. We did one this past Saturday where people had an opportunity to call in,” Weiner said.

“I’m not trying to make someone like me, or someone be persuaded of any particular outlook on me. We are going to be having some conversations about things going on in New York City and other places, and hopefully, people will tune in to the show, but I’m not terribly interested in trying to make them feel any differently about me.”

Weiner is co-hosting a weekend show on WABC with former New York City mayoral candidate Curtis Sliwa.

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.
