A New Jersey radio host used a portion of his show Wednesday to raise awareness about the shocking number of drug overdose deaths that have occurred in his state since the pandemic began. 

New Jersey 101.5 FM’s Bill Spadea spoke to treatment specialist Daniel Regan, a recovery addict himself, who now helps other people get clean. 

“This problem is growing,” said Regan. “The statistics that just came out indicate that 90,000 people in the year 2020 died from drug addiction.” 

According to the New Jersey State Attorney General’s Office, 3046 residents suffered a fatal overdose last year. 

Regan said the crisis in New Jersey continues to get worse and that the pandemic was catastrophic for many addicts. He said many relapsed and fatally overdosed or ended up committing suicide. 

“We know the opposite of addiction is connection,” said Regan. “When we went into lockdown there was nothing for people to really connect to.” 

The radio station is partnering with Regan’s employer, CFC Recovery, to host a fundraiser at the stage in Seaside Heights on Saturday September 25 at Grant Avenue for the Rock the Farm Festival.

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.”
