Former President Donald Trump will join James “Bo Snerdley” Golden on Saturday as the former legendary call screener for the late conservative talk king Rush Limbaugh gains momentum and notoriety as part of WABC-New York’s Saturday morning line-up.
“It is truly an honor to have President Trump agree to appear on WABC TalkRadio 77 with me this Saturday,” Golden said in a statement to BizPac Review.
“Without question – President Trump has dominated political discourse in America the past six years – his presidential track record of accomplishment, while largely unreported on by the mainstream media – is unequaled by any modern president of either political party. I, along with the WABC audience look forward to hearing from this president, who remains the most popular leader among Republicans in the last century,” he added.
Trump and Golden, who recently appeared in May at the former president’s Mar-a-Lago resort and home, both celebrated the life of Limbaugh, who passed away in February at the age of 70 after a year-long battle with lung cancer. In accepting the “Lee Greenwood Patriot Award” on behalf of the legendary broadcaster, Golden also praised Trump, noting that “in January, one of the greatest presidents that the United States has ever had left office.” Trump honored Limbaugh the day of his passing, telling Fox News’s “Outnumbered” program that the radio great was a “fighter” and a “legend.”
In the weeks after Limbaugh’s death, Golden returned to his and his former boss’s flagship station in New York to launch his own weekly show, which, by any account, has been a success. His baritone voice and easy style combine with his knowledge of the American political landscape and superior life observation skills to deliver for listeners an enlightening, entertaining, and highly instructive format.
In addition to his increasingly popular 77-WABC show, Golden in May launched a highly rated Wednesday podcast carried on iHeart Radio that focuses exclusively on his decades-long friend, Limbaugh.
Golden is expected to announce on the show that he is writing a poignant book on Limbaugh’s life and career that will be released next year by a new publishing house focused on conservative writers, All Seasons Press.
“Rush Limbaugh’s incredible legacy is not going to be told by one person. He impacted the lives of tens of millions of people,” Golden told BPR. “The generosity of his being and his relentless pursuit of broadcast excellence are just a fraction of this larger-than-life incredible man.
“This book, at its best, will only be able to capture a glimpse of what a great man Rush truly was, and my only desire is that I can present a compelling behind-the-scenes look at the radio show, for his vast audience,” added Golden.
Louise Burke, the former president and publisher of Simon & Schuster’s Gallery Books Group, and Kate Hartson, formerly of Hachette Book Group’s Center Street imprint, teamed up to form the new publishing house as a means of publishing conservative voices who were increasingly being shut out from other major publishing companies thanks to left-wing cancel culture.
“I’m increasingly concerned and somewhat outraged about what’s going on in terms of free speech and free press,” Burke told The Wall Street Journal this week. “I’m concerned about the canceling of voices that traditionally were always allowed to publish and are meeting resistance from mainstream publishers, particularly former Trump administration members.”
Earlier this month on WABC, Golden ripped establishment Republicans as well as Democrats for predicting that Trump’s massive voter base will simply abandon him and his ‘America first’ agenda now that he’s out of office.
“The idea that Republicans should turn on President Trump is laughable. There’s another article I read I think in BizPac [Review] or Fox News about Liz Cheney continuing to make the case that ‘we’ll see whether the GOP will survive’ if she’s thrown out of office. Liz, you’re not that important,” Golden boomed.
“You never were that important. That’s your ego. And if it wasn’t for your daddy, you wouldn’t even be in office! Because you rode on his name, you didn’t ride on anything that you did,” he added, referencing former vice president and defense secretary Dick Cheney.
And last week, ‘Snerdley’ brought on conservative pundit and Fox News host Tammy Bruce, in which the two discussed Democrats’ increasingly left-wing agenda, which she believes is becoming an advantage for Republicans ahead of the 2022 elections and beyond, even if many in the party don’t “recognize it.” She also argued that conservative ideas and policies such as those espoused by Trump were eminently beneficial to all Americans and that more people began to recognize that during his term.
Bruce had Golden on as a guest during a stint hosting “Fox News Primetime” this month, a format featuring a rotating list of network personalities who take over hosting duties for a week at a time. Golden, who was Bruce’s first guest as she began her five-day segment, was the highest-rated among all guests for the week, she said.
