Putting Your Money Where Your Heart Is

A few days before Christmas, I sent a note to my e-news subscribers to wish them a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. In the message I thanked them for their support of my WPHT 1210 Radio Show, supporting the advertisers who pay the bills and make the show possible and, most importantly, to wish them […]

Wonder Why Health Insurance Premiums Go Up? A Possible Answer.

The video says it all, so I’ll be brief. How many hospital emergency rooms are treating the typical thrill-seeking, adrenaline junkies like the one you see in this video?

My Taxpayer of the Year Award

As I write this, I am looking at my W-2 and 1099 tax forms for 2012. Every year I bring them to my tax preparer and as his calculator works overtime, I anxiously await the “damage.” During tax season, millions of Americans go through that same tax anxiety. But this year, the anxiety is going […]

I have encountered a lot of trolls online and in talk radio.

Is It Time to Strike Back Against Internet and Talk Radio Trolls?

I went into talk radio with my eyes wide open. It’s not a profession for the feint of heart. Every day my radio show on WPHT 1210-AM is three hours of lightning-rod, controversial topics.
