On Wednesday, rumors swirled that the New York City mayoral candidate and former congressman was confirmed for his own show, after the New York Daily News wrote a story alleging that he was being approached about a drive-time show focusing on local politics. WABC's operations manager, Tony Mascaro, has denied the claims, saying the station is "looking at a lot of people."
