John Batchelor Leaving WABC

Posted by Mike on September 1, 2006

Tonight (Friday) will be the final installment of the John Batchelor Show on WABC. Batchelor hosts one of the most informative programs in media. He began his show on September 12, 2001 and was supposed to remain on the air until Osama Bin Laden was captured or killed. Although he covered a wide range of topics, his Middle East coverage was particularly noteworthy. He was one of the first media personalities to pinpoint the fact that Iran was a threat to global security, often probing with precision into the details of Iranian culture and politics through his extensive network of sources on the ground.

WABC should not have let him get away. However, I’m confident his show will pop up somewhere soon.

    Since John Batchelor left the air waves I feel totally out good information about what is going on in the Mid-east. I listened to him every night from Boston.
