I hear WLIB has some time available.
Seriously, I agree with you that Cramer is a character and is an interesting listen for the topic; few others could do so well for a financial format that appeals to a more mature demographic.
The contention could be made however that WFNY is paying the midmorning show NY size salaries only to have them cut down to three hours thanks to Mr. Gillette and Mr. Cramer. Maybe they should farm them out to a nearby FreeFM, or have one of the shows from WJFK or Live 105.7 in Baltimore fed to NY and send the duo back to the Bay Area. Just a thought.
