Joy Browne Is Back


Dr. Joy Browne is getting back with some of the old gang. Salem's New York City NewsTalker, AM 970 The Answer, has hired Brown for the 1a.m. to 4a.m. shift. She begins August 12. Browne is the fourth former WOR talker to join The Answer. John Gambling, Mike Gallagher, and Lou Dobbs are the others. And she's back with former WOR General Manager Jerry Crowley as well. 

AM 970 The Answer VP and General Manager Jerry Crowley said he's delighted to land another one of his former stars who worked for him when he ran WOR for many years. "Joy's was consistently one of the most talked about shows on WOR. Her voice was prematurely silenced across the street, as was John Gambling, and it is my pleasure to allow her many fans to find her again."

Browne said, "I am beyond thrilled to be back on the air in New York; and working with John Gambling and Jerry Crowley and Lou Dobbs again makes it feel like coming home. We have been besieged by listeners who wanted to know where I went and how to find me, and now they will know."
