Authors Face ‘Testy’ Talk Radio Interviews
April 2, 2012

Former Senator Arlen Specter — who took an opportunity to switch from the Republican to Democratic Party during his final months in the U.S. Senate — has been making the rounds of Talk radio this past week to chat up Life Among The Cannibals, his recently released tell-all book about his 30+ years in the the political arena. But the longtime Senator from Pennsylvania has not exactly been getting a warm welcome at Talk radio, with conflicts and outbursts happening during interviews with a number of hosts including KTRH/Houston talker Michael Berry (who dismissed Specter as “arrogant” when they spoke); Talk Radio Network syndicated host and WGST/Atlanta personality Rusty Humphries (who openly mocked the ex-pol by introducing him as infamous Rock producer Phil Spector); and Genesis Communications Networks host Jason Lewis (who The Daily Caller reports called Specter “intolerant” after a rather testy exchange).

Meanwhile, a similar story comes out of WFAN/New York where Hank Haney — former coach to golfing legend Tiger Woods — took a barrage of hits from the station’s Boomer & Carton during a recent interview over his new tell-all book about Woods. At one point Craig Carton calls Haney “a horrible human being” and pegs him as “scum” for trading his insider stories and Woods’ trust for a book deal.
