The media world is still discussing the confrontation between Chris Rock and Will Smith, where the “King Richard” actor slapped the comedian for cracking a joke about his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith.

SiriusXM host Howard Stern stated that the incident proves that Smith and former President Donald Trump are the same but didn’t discuss the similarities between the two men.

“The first thing I said was, ‘What the f— is going on because where’s security?’” Stern said. “This is a live television event. Not one person came out because he’s Will Smith. This is how Trump gets away with shit.”

“Will Smith and Trump are the same guy. What you saw on TV was a guy who’s got real issues. You don’t hit people over speech, certainly not at the Academy Awards. And Will Smith’s gotta contain himself.”

Stern then turned his attention to Smith’s peers in Hollywood, calling out those who applauded him when the performer delivered a speech minutes later while accepting the best actor trophy minutes later after the incident with Rock.

“Here’s Hollywood that’s so outraged by every little thing. Not one person got up and said, ‘Hold on. We got an out-of-control situation here,’” Stern said. “How this guy was allowed to sit there for the rest of the awards. And he’s laughing it up and having a good time with his wife.”

“What he did was he just assaulted Chris Rock. He took matters into his own hands. It’s like saying, ‘Well, I’ll shoot you because you insulted my wife.’”

“The talk radio format is saturated with conservative voices, with the industry having little to no room for a reasoned response from a liberal/progressive perspective,” says Roberts.

Ron Roberts is joining AmericaOne Radio in Atlanta.

The Ron Show will air weeknights at 5:00 PM on the city’s progressive outlet. Roberts says he’s happy to offer a counter to the conservative domination of talk radio.

“The talk radio format is saturated with conservative voices, with the industry having little to no room for a reasoned response from a liberal/progressive perspective,” says Roberts. “My aim is to bring some balance to the dialogue by adding my voice to the fray. I’m a lifelong southern liberal, and know, from my travels throughout the southeast, that there are a lot more of us out there being drowned out by all the shouting from the other side. My goal is to provide a platform for them, and to rationally spell out how our nation’s problems are solvable with substantive ideas and conversation, instead of demonization and division. Make no mistake, though; I’m not holding back punches and I’ll call out bullshit when I see it, too. The future of this country, democracy in general, and the world on the whole, are all on the line.” 

Roberts, a 25-year radio veteran, will make his first entry into talk when his show premieres today.

Launched in 2020, AmericaOne in Atlanta airs several left-leaning shows. The station bills itself as bringing “a Progressive voice to the overly crowded radio landscape.

Mike Gallagher spent his Monday radio show broadcasting from various locations around southwest Florida after Hurricane Ian ravaged areas of the region last week.

Gallagher has partnered with Food For The Poor, a non-profit relief organization, to bring flood relief and hurricane emergency kits to areas affected by the Category 4 storm.

“This is what radio does best: opening the hearts and wallets of listeners to help fellow Americans they will likely never meet,” Gallagher said. He spent a portion of his show broadcasting from a car dealership in Venice, Florida, which saw several automobiles damaged by falling trees, power lines, and debris.

A Tampa resident, Gallagher was forced to relocate his show to New York last week to remain on the air as Hurricane Ian barreled down on the Florida coast.
