'Radio Chick' Gold Set for 5/8 Talk Radio Talkback

Talk Radio, recently nominated by the Outer Critics Circle, Drama League and Drama Desk for Outstanding Revival of a Play, will continue its acclaimed and controversial series of post-show talkbacks when 92.3 FreeFM's "Radio Chick," Leslie Gold, appears onstage at the Longacre Theater along with members of the cast following the 8pm show on May 8th. The series has previously featured WOR's Dr. Joy Browne, David Richardson, and Bob Grant, and WABC's Ron Kuby, Phil Boyce, Warner Wolf, and George Weber.

Leslie Gold, known affectionately as the "RadioChick", "speaks to men like no other woman. With a style that is an equal balance of smart, funny and sexy she and her crew have created a show that is a certified hit. Since January 2006, she has anchored CBS Radio's Free FM expansion in the Afternoon Drive spot from the flagship station 92.3 WXRK in NYC. At WNEW, the Radiochick rapidly took the show from 17th to 3rd among men. Hosting the morning show at Q104.3, she was the only woman headlining a morning drive radio show in New York. In little more than a year she delivered the highest morning show ratings in the station's history. After hosting successful radio and TV shows in the New York market, she extended her reach nationally on Sirius Satellite Radio, creating one of the most popular and exciting shows on the service," state press notes.

Eric Bogosian's Talk Radio began its current run at the Longacre Theatre on Thursday, February 15, 2007. The acclaimed production has been nominated for Outstanding Revival by the Drama Desk, the Outer Critics Circle and the Drama League. Liev Schreiber, who portrays controversial talk host Barry Champlain, has also been nominated for his performance by the Drama Desk, Outer Critics and Drama League.

Co-starring with Schreiber, under the direction of Tony Award winner Robert Falls, are Stephanie March, Peter Hermann, Michael Laurence and Sebastian Stan, with an ensemble featuring Christine Pedi, Christy Pusz, Barbara Rosenblat, Adam Seitz, Marc Thompson, Kit Williamson, and Cornell Womack. Talk Radio's design team includes Drama Desk nominated sound designer Richard Woodbury along with Mark Wendland, Laura Bauer and Christopher Akerlind.
