John R Gambling
Rambling with Gambling was a news and talk radio program that aired from 1925 through 2013, almost uninterrupted, with one name change toward the end of its run. It was hosted by three generations of people named John Gambling throughout its entire 88+ year run.
The program was on WOR (AM), except for a 9-year switch to WABC (AM) from 2000 to 2008, when it was renamed The John Gambling Show. On its return to WOR in 2008, it kept the newer name.
John B. Gambling started the show in March 1925. His son, John A. Gambling became host in 1959. He brought his son, John R. Gambling, to the show as co-host from 1985 until his retirement in 1991. John R. Gambling has been solo host since that time.
At the time, it was the longest continually-running radio broadcast in America, a position now held by the Grand Ole Opry. After a brief hiatus, WABC hired Gambling. WOR owned the rights to the name Rambling with Gambling, so the revived show was renamed The John Gambling Show.
