Bob Grant dead; conservative NYC talk radio legend was 84
« on: January 02, 2014, 04:33:36 PM »
Mr Grant was one of the pioneers of Conservative talk radio. I never heard him but know of him by reputation. RIP, Bob.

Bob Grant, the fiery, gravel-voiced avatar of conservative talk radio in New York and whose influence stretched wide and deep in television, has died. WABC Radio -- where he worked, and famously was fired from -- has announced his death, while other sites are now confirming.

In addition, Ron Kuby and Curtis Sliwa -- about as opposite a pair to Grant as could be imagined -- have been eulogizing Grant on air for the past half-hour or so. (Yes, the world of talk radio changes -- Kuby and Sliwa are back, as of today). Grant, who was 84, reportedly died Dec. 31.

He had been in ill health for months. Here's his obit.[linked]
