Geraldo Rivera's Radio Show No Longer Nationally Syndicated


Geraldo Rivera's radio show is getting a little shake-up in 2014, and with that the program is losing its national syndication.

The radio talk show host's show "Geraldo" will air exclusively in New York City starting on January 1, 2014 on 77 WABC and on the Internet. Previously, the show had also aired on KABC-AM in Los Angeles and across 40 different stations since August 2012.

Cumulus Media Networks announced in a press release that "Geraldo" will relaunch in the new year as a local talk show focused on topics concerning New York City. The show will air from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. on WABC-AM.

“For the last four decades, in war and peace I’ve been chasing the news around the world," Geraldo said in the press release. "But there’s a universe of stories right here in my hometown."

Interestingly enough, this is not the first cancellation Rivera has faced as of late. The move to cancel Rivera's national syndication comes just two months after Rivera's invitation to speak at Duquesne University for the 50th anniversary of JFK's assassination was rescinded following a shirtless 'selfie' that he tweeted of himself in July.
