Giuliani Suspended by WABC and Radio Show Canceled

Rudolph W. Giuliani’s Show Cancelled on WABC Radio

Rudolph W. Giuliani, former New York City mayor and key figure in former President Donald J. Trump’s attempts to challenge the 2020 election results, faced a sudden suspension and cancellation of his talk show on WABC radio. The station cited violations of their policy regarding discussions around the discredited claims of the 2020 presidential election.

Violation of Policy

John Catsimatidis, the billionaire owner of WABC, made the decision to suspend Mr. Giuliani after repeated warnings to avoid the election-related topic. Despite the warnings, Mr. Giuliani persisted in discussing the matter on air, leading to his suspension and show cancellation.

Financial and Legal Ramifications

The removal of Mr. Giuliani from WABC, one of his primary sources of income, adds to his mounting legal and financial troubles. Facing criminal charges in Georgia and Arizona for his role in contesting the election results, Mr. Giuliani has also been the target of various lawsuits and creditors.

Free Speech Dispute

In a statement, Mr. Giuliani criticized WABC’s policies as a violation of free speech. He argued that he was unaware of any specific policy restricting his discussions on the 2020 election on air, and claimed that the policy was not consistently enforced.

Concerns Over Legal Implications

Mr. Catsimatidis, the station owner, expressed concerns about potential legal ramifications associated with discussing election fraud claims on air. Following a memo issued by WABC in January 2021, cautioning against invalidating election results, Mr. Giuliani’s continued focus on the topic raised red flags.

Decisive Action

Mr. Catsimatidis emphasized that the decision to suspend Mr. Giuliani was difficult but necessary to uphold the station’s policies. He clarified that personal opinions on the election outcome, including his own, were not appropriate topics for discussion on WABC.
