Normally a radio host will have one “featured guest” during their time slot. Such was not the case for nationally syndicated host Todd Starnes. Thursday evening, an All-Star lineup of conservative voices from the world of media and politics appeared on The Todd Starnes Show, including Mike Huckabee, Ted Cruz, and many others. ]

Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene was also scheduled to appear, but could not, so Starnes filled that segment questioning whether the Coastal Pipeline shutdown was politically motivated.

Collectively, Cruz and Huckabee hit on many major conservative talking points such as criticizing the main stream media, President Joe Biden as well as liberal members of Congress, while also offering opinions on rising tensions in the Middle East.

“The media desperately wants to fan the flames of a Civil War among Republicans over Liz Cheney,” first guest Cruz said. “To be honest, Republicans are more unified now than they were just a few days ago. The only hope  the Democrats have in 2022 is to create this notion of a Civil War when there is none. We are on a path to take the House and Senate.”

Second guest, former Arkansas governor and host of the TV program Mike Huckabee Today, Mike  Huckabee, changed course to talk about tensions in the Middle East between Israel and Hamas.

“Hamas is firing rockets at Israel trying to kill women and children,” Huckabee said, When Israel defends itself, Hamas places children in front of their soldiers so they can claim that Israel is killing children. No civilized people do that. But you got Senators and other liberals on Capitol Hill acting like the press secretary for Hamas. There was no uprising when Trump was in office because they were afraid of him, but Biden gets in and he is so soft. He sends 200 million dollars to Iran to build better streets and schools, but Iran is sending that money to Hamas to try and wipe Israel off the face of the Earth. It’s a disastrous policy by Biden. It’s taken just three months for all the progress Donald Trump made to literally go up in smoke under Joe Biden.”

In the final hour, looking for a segment to fill, Starnes pivoted to the gas shortage in the Eastern United States.

“I had heard some listeners’ opinions that this shutdown was caused by Biden to push an agenda and I didn’t think so,” Starnes said. “But then I hear Press Secretary Jen Psaki say, ‘if we all drove electric cars, this wouldn’t be a problem’. That gives me pause. I wonder if this will accelerate the move to electric cars which is something The Biden Administration wants. We will just have to wait and see.”

SiriusXM radio host Howard Stern told “Morning Joe’s” Joe Scarborough and Willie Geist in an extensive interview that MSNBC is the network for him regarding cable news consumption. 

Stern stated that he’s a major fan of “Morning Joe” and went the extra mile to say that he and co-host Joe Scarborough share the same political idealogy.

“I watch you guys every morning,” Stern said (h/t Mediaite). “I really enjoy the show. Oddly, I agree politically with almost everything Joe says. I don’t think there’s much difference there.”

The radio host thanked MSNBC for providing him with what he loves: 24/7 news. Additionally, Stern offered a shoutout to network host Symone Sanders and stated he’s no fan of Dateline repeats.

“By the way, I want to give a shoutout to MSNBC,” Stern added. “Thank God you don’t play the old Datelines anymore on the weekends. I like news. I watch this channel exclusively for news. I tune out on the weekend. 

“It’s like all news stuff. I’m watching old Datelines. I like when you guys are onI like news 24/7, and now I find I’m getting it. I get Symone on the weekend. Big fan of hers. Symone coming on strong. What can I tell you? I know the whole lineup.”

Charges against John DePetro have been dismissed as the radio host faced a trespassing charge related to an incident over the summer during a Monday court hearing.

DePetro was arrested in mid-August outside a home on Staples Avenue in Warwick.

Police searched the house several months earlier as part of an investigation into the disappearance of Charlotte Lester, who has been missing for six months.

“I respect our justice system and respect law enforcement, specifically the Warwick PD,” DePetro said on Twitter. “The search for Charlotte Lester continues as I resume efforts searching for answers into her disappearance and holding Mark Perkins accountable for his actions against myself and Ladybug.”

The man who lives there, Mark Perkins, was also arrested the following day after he allegedly charged at DePetro with a lawnmower while DePetro was live-streaming. 

Unlike DePetro, who had his charges dismissed, Perkins still faces an assault charge, according to court records.

The station features a syndicated lineup, including Hugh Hewitt, Brian Kilmeade, Dan Bongino, Mike Gallagher, Joe Pags, and Bill O’Reilly. Furthermore, with the rebrand possibly comes a new addition.
