He was one of the first talk show hosts on the FM band at stations in New York City and, as alter ego Walter Sabo, programmed and consulted enormously successful stations throughout the country.

He and his colleagues introduced the format known as Adult Contemporary to NBC’s O&O FM’s.  He is the youngest Executive Vice President in the history of NBC and held executive positions at ABC, before becoming a top media consultant.  Sadly, he did not own the stations he created. As a result, he continues to work on the air promoting strange ideas and opinions.
