John Batchelor is almost synonymous with WABC-AM in New York. John Batchelor had his local show in New York when 9/11 happened, and went on to be nationally syndicated on ABC radio. Ultimately that became Westwood One / Cumulus media.
Cumulus has sold WABC to a local investor, and John left and is now on the CBS podcast Network, which by itself is odd since CBS sold out its radio interest to Entercom. This happened in March 2021, and I’ve just gotten around to noticing it. John Batchelor is 73 years old.
