Sid Rosenberg: I Reconciled With Mark Levin After Hamas Attacks in Israel

Earlier this year, 77WABC morning host Sid Rosenberg was locked in what he described as a “silly feud” with Mark Levin. The pair have subsequently mended fences, with Rosenberg revealing what led to the reconciliation.

The two traded barbs publicly after Rosenberg supported 77WABC owner John Catsimatidis and his decision to air a one-hour interview with former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D), which cut into an hour of Levin’s program on the New York news/talk station. Rosenberg alleged Levin used “an adjective that was really not very nice for no reason” to describe the New York hosts, which he took issue with.

During Sid and Friends in the Morning on Monday, Sid Rosenberg revealed that he and Levin are on good terms once again, with the Hamas terrorist attacks in Israel on October 7th being the catalyst for the pair setting aside their differences.

“Eight days after what happened in Israel unprovoked I reached out to Mark Levin,” Rosenberg said. “I shouldn’t say unprovoked. I was watching Fox News, and on Sunday mornings they’ve got Pete Hegseth and this girl, Rachel Campos — who’s pretty — but she sounded so stupid when they were interviewing Levin that day, eight days after the original attacks. And Levin just took her to pieces, and I thought explained the Iran situation, the whole Middle East, exactly why Israel should do exactly what they’re doing now, which is don’t pay attention to Joe Biden and the rest of these assholes and just wipe these mothereffers out.”

Rosenberg then shared that he sent Levin’s producer an email asking if he’d be interested in squashing the growing tensions between the two.

“I said, ‘Hey, man, Levin’s been talking about me, I’ve been talking about him. But eight days after these attacks, the big Jewish voices in this country — Mark Levin, Sid Rosenberg, Ben Shapiro — we need to be together. We need to be one. So do you think that Levin would be up to having a discussion this afternoon?’ And about five minutes later, I got an email back with Levin’s cell phone number saying ‘Call him at three’, and I did.

“And we had this great conversation. Levin said, ‘You’re a big man. I should have done this. You did it. I’m glad you did. I respect you. You’re a great talent and great show’. And now he’s been on the show two or three times since.”

Civic Media has plotted a pair of new midday shows on its 12 talk stations throughout Wisconsin.

Matenaer On Air — featuring Jane Matenaer and comedian Greg Bach will air on the network from 10 AM to Noon. Matenaer joined the outlet in 2022 after previously working as a news anchor and producer at WTMJ. She began hosting the daypart after Kristin Brey joined WTMJ in January.

“I’m so proud to be a part of Civic Media and our mission of keeping hometown radio alive. It is a joy to be able to break down the news of the day, along with finding the lighter side of issues Wisconsinites care about,” Matenaer said. “From childcare to clean water to animal rescue organizations and many more, it continues to be the honor of my life to be welcomed into people’s lives each and every day.”

Additionally, The Todd Allbaugh Show will be heard from 12-2 PM. Allbaugh joined the Civic Media network when the company purchased WRCO in 2022.

“It’s an amazing privilege to work for a statewide network and have conversations with our listeners,” Allbaugh said. “As we take our show across Wisconsin, I’m reminded there’s more that unites than divides us, and I’m excited to tell those stories.”

Finally, Maggie Daun is moving up in the lineup, taking her show from 6-7 PM and moving to 2-4 PM.

“I am beyond thrilled to start in my new mid-day time slot,” said Daun. “This is a crucial time for politics in our state, and I am excited to continue sharing my knowledge, having conversations with our listeners about holding our government accountable at all levels, and pushing for the efficiency and effectiveness needed so that it helps all of the communities it is meant to serve.”

Syndicated host Tony Katz is taking his program to Israel for a series of special broadcasts from the Middle East.

Tony Katz Today will be live from Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Akko, and other areas attacked by Hamas last October.

“The narrative is dominated by bigots who blame Israel for everything while never admitting that Hamas is a terrorist organization that brutally attacked innocent men, women and children. So many in media and in elected office never admit that Hamas raped and murdered women and set babies on fire,” said Katz.

“Also, the media rarely discusses the pressures on the Israeli people. Businesses struggle because the owners and the employees are on the front lines. Hospitals are working with skeleton crews. Food rots in the fields because the workers are fighting for Israel’s future. That story needs to be told. And I’m going to do just that; honestly and directly.”

Katz will air conversations with top Israeli politicians, as well as soldiers, hospital workers, business owners, and farmers from the Jewish state.

Tony Katz Today originates from 93 WIBC in Indianapolis and is heard throughout the Midwest on affiliate stations.
