New York, N.Y. – November 11, 2013 – WOR 710 AM, New York's News Talk Station, announced today that longtime morning show host, John Gambling, will retire from his morning show. The John Gambling Show's final broadcast will be on December 20, 2013.
Gambling's impressive radio career has spanned over 40 years, with 35 in New York City. His radio legacy began as a third generation host of The Gambling family's long-running morning radio show in New York – he first joined his father as co-host of Rambling with Gambling in 1985 and took over as the sole host in 1991 after he retired. Gambling has been hosting WOR's morning show since 2008.
"I have done and accomplished so much – my radio career has given me the privilege to entertain and inform millions of New Yorkers," said Gambling. "Each day, to watch the greatest city on earth from behind the microphone has been a thrill and I've been blessed with an audience that has been loyal and engaging. To say it has been exciting doesn’t come close to the joy I have had."
"John Gambling is a New York City radio icon and we are grateful for his time and commitment to WOR and our loyal listeners over the years," said Joe Puglise, President and Market Manager, Clear Channel New York. "His presence in morning radio will be missed throughout the industry, especially by the New Yorkers he informed and entertained for years."
WOR has begun the search for a new morning show that will be announced soon.
