Catsimatidis’ reach extends to two talk radio shows

John Catsimatidis’ Sunday morning radio show has now expanded into two programs on AM dial 970. The segment from 8:30 a.m. to 9 a.m. generally includes local, city and state political developments. From 9 a.m. to10 a.m. national and international issues will be stressed. In only a short time the listening audience’s request for a larger program has come to fruition. Catsimatidis’ political trail has grown as he has had numerous guests on his program from both major political parties and also from conservative and liberal backgrounds. Comment.
