Syndicated radio host Erick Erickson discussed LIV Golf Tuesday calling it a power play by the Saudi Arabians and comparing it to the current state of news media where prominent voices tend to go where the people are. 

Erickson said his radio show is “uncancellable” based on his influence on Substack and the fact that if his advertisers were ever scared away, he would use his subscriber money to pay for his syndication costs. 

According to his website, Erickson is syndicated on at least 20 radio stations across the country. 

Erickson said LIV has managed to capture an influential audience much like some of the national TV shows that air on the weekend. He mentioned “Meet the Press,” “Face the Nation,” and ABC’s “World News Tonight” as shows with targeted audiences.  

“Those Sunday shows don’t have a lot of eyeballs, but they have a lot of influence in Washington D.C,” Erickson said. “You are not the target audience for those programs, Washington D.C. is.”

Erickson said LIV Golf reminds him of his days at RedState, a conservative website owned by Salem Media. 

“We were not the largest website, we were not even the largest blog out there on the right, but we were the most influential,” said Erickson. 

Erickson said LIV Golf has something in common with the radio and television industry in that the audience may not be large for certain outlets but they can be influential.

“LIV is funded by the Saudis because they are trying to capture the eyeballs of the who’s who of America,” Erickson added.

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.

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.
