Longtime Philadelphia anchor, editor, and reporter Mark Abrams announced his retirement from KYW Newsradio Thursday. The multi-talented Abrams worked as journalist for several different companies in both the print and radio industries.  

Abrams’ career spanned 24 years. He came to KYW from WHUM in Reading, Pennsylvania. He also anchored at WPEN and WIP.  He served as reporter, columnist and desk editor for the Reading Eagle and Reading Times newspapers.

He covered the Archdiocese of Philadelphia and the Catholic community extensively for KYW, including the papal visit in Philadelphia in 2015. He covered the selections of two different popes, live from the Vatican, both in 2005 and 2013.

“Mark Abrams has long been a versatile part of the KYW Newsradio family,” said midday news anchor Michelle Durham. “I wish you the best of luck in retirement. Your family’s always been your priority, and I’m so thrilled that you will have an opportunity to spend more time with them.”

Morning drive sports reporter Dave Uram: “I think a perfect way to describe your role on KYW for nearly 24 years is versatile. Reporter, anchor, editor — you did it all, and you did it with professionalism, enthusiasm and leadership.”

Philadelphia radio host Chris Stigall said the media is to blame for misleading the public about the true state of America. Speaking on his show Monday on 990 The Answer, Stigall pushed back against pundits who claimed that Friday’s Jobs Report Showed economic growth. 

Stigall praised former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie for his comments to ABC’s George Stephanopoulos on “This Week.” Christie Said inflation is canceling anything that appears good because Americans can’t keep up with rising prices. 

Christie cited the rising cost of food and gas. Stigall reacted to Stephanopoulos, pushing back against Christie’s assertion that people are doing worse financially than they were two years ago.

 “There’s Stephanopoulos again. Isn’t it good that the president got more legislative things done,” Stigall said mockingly. “This is exactly what Jonathan Karl did last week, these Sunday show people.”

 Stigall inferred that the media is covering up for the Biden administration’s constant overspending, which many analysts believe has led to historical inflation. 

“All they do is pom-pom shake and cheerlead,” exclaimed Stigall. “This is Washingtonian c**p, beltway stuff. George, the people are hurting; it’s costing a fortune to live!”

Clay Travis and Buck Sexton claim that CNN’s Brian Stelter has changed his position on the legitimacy of the Hunter Biden laptop story. The duo analyzed how Stelter is shifting the narrative during their nationally syndicated radio show on Monday. 

Travis said he was shocked when he heard Stelter discuss the possibility that Hunter Biden may be under federal investigation. 

“Mr. Potato Head. Brian Stelter, he actually said on his show over the weekend,” said Travis. “You know what? There’s something to this Hunter Biden story.” I was stunned when I heard this,” Travis said via the show’s official website. 

Sexton said conservative media should get credit for breaking the Biden laptop story. 

“It’s always, “Oh, I guess they’re not total liars over there and a bunch of jerks,” Sexton said. “They actually got it right. They never give any credit. And we’re right on this stuff all the time.” 

“Stelter is part of a whole movement over at CNN toward. “People say, “Oh, they’re moving back toward the center,” or, “They’re moving back toward more of a journalistic enterprise.” The reality is that they’re moving back toward or they’re moving in the direction of what conservative media has been saying now all along, especially about everything with Biden,” he added.

SiriusXM’s Megyn Kelly revealed on Monday’s edition of “The Megyn Kelly Show” that she was about to appear in court as part of the Alex Jones defamation trial in support of the families of Sandy Hook victims.

Kelly stated that the parents of Jesse Lewis, a six-year-old boy murdered in the Sandy Hook shooting, asked the radio host to take the stand about a 2017 interview Kelly had conducted with Jones.

“I will tell you the truth,” Kelly said on her show. “I was not excited to do this and really wrestled with whether I could or should. This whole story, every iteration of it has been personally and professionally painful.”

“Did I really wanna leave my family, travel to Austin, Texas, take part in this insane trial with an out-of-control defendant, and subject myself to a hostile cross-examination, not to mention relive a difficult time in my career and a chapter of dealing with Alex Jones that frankly, I would rather forget? No.”

Kelly discussed the 2017 interview she conducted with Jones when she was with NBC News and stated that Sandy Hook would be a topic of discussion with the InfoWars host. Furthermore, she added that no one forced Jones to say any conspiracy theories. 

“The truth is, I told Alex Jones from the start, that Sandy hook would be part of this interview. That we would go over the controversies, but that I wanted to cover more about him than that. And that’s exactly what we did in the NBC news piece, which is one of the journalistic endeavors of which I am most proud in my career,” Kelly said.

“No one made him spew these conspiracy theories, but himself, he jumped willingly and recklessly into those defamatory claims,” she added. “This judgment is morally correct. And beyond past due.”

Finally, Kelly stated that she was happy to see Jones punished. 

“Alex Jones, yes, in his own way, a talented, compelling sometimes — sometimes on other issues weirdly correct, entertaining force in independent media, has hurt too many people, too many times,” Kelly said. “I am happy for Neil and Scarlett. I am relieved the jury punished Alex Jones.”
