Radio legend Barry Farber drops by to show Mr. Media how the big boys do it!



Barry Farber landed his own radio show on WINS in New York in 1960, moving to the number one talk station in America, WOR, in 1962. His southern accent made him "easy to zero in on" and by the time Farber left WOR after fifteen years to accept the Conservative Party's nomination for Mayor in 1977, his show occupied more than 25% of the station's entire broadcast week. After losing that election to Ed Koch, Farber joined New York radio station WMCA where he remained for eleven years.

Today, "The Barry Farber Show" is heard Monday through Friday over CRN Digital Talk Radio and on Saturday afternoons on the Talk Radio Network.

Farber was included by TALKERS MAGAZINE among the top twelve radio talk hosts of all time. His peers named him "Talk Host of the Year" in 1991.

There's something about Farber's gentle southern manner that side-steps all hostility to his right-of-center views. A common listener's letter says some version of, "I dislike your political views, but not as much as I dislike missing your show!"
