The Problem With Coast To Coast AM and George Noory

30 Jun

June 30, 2016

I make fun of Coast to Coast AM with George Noory a lot. A LOT. In case you don’t know the show, here is their own description:

Coast to Coast AM airs on more than 600 stations in the U.S., as well as Canada, Mexico and Guam, and is heard by nearly three million weekly listeners. With hosts George Noory, George Knapp (weekend), and guest weekend hosts, it is the most listened to overnight radio program in North America. A media phenomenon, Coast to Coast AM deals with UFOs, strange occurrences, life after death, and other unexplained (and often inexplicable) phenomena. Coast to Coast AM is overnight talk radio with daytime ratings.

What that leaves out is that it is not nearly as popular or respected as it was under Art Bell, who created it. It also leaves out that under George Noory the show has become a joke. You’ll see why soon.

Art Bell was a critical questioner and listener. He had as guests experts in major scientific fields as well as those involved in fringe paranormal research. But no matter who he had on, he asked probing and intelligent questions and did not let anyone who made outrageous claims go unchallenged. George is just the opposite. Not only is he himself ill-informed  about most of the topics he addresses, he rarely asks follow up questions and never, ever challenges a guest about anything said. Even callers with ridiculous claims are given a “gosh, wow!” by George. Ghost of Hitler got off a UFO and had a picnic with Bigfoot on your front lawn while you danced with pixies and made sandwiches? “That sounds like some afternoon. Do you think they chose you intentionally or do you live in a UFO hot spot?”

The big issue is that George is totally uncritical and unquestioning. He is open to anything and will never, ever say a negative word about anything or anyone.

I debunked a UFO claim on their Facebook page the other day.

C2C crap

I’m not an expert on UFOs. I’m just a guy with an interest in things who has read some books. Surely the host of Coast to Coast AM with George Noory, a “media phenomemon” who has been delving into the mysteries of the paranormal for 13 years, would be more knowledgeable than me. Surely someone on his staff would do some research on an alleged UFO photo before posting it on their website. Surely they wouldn’t be powned by a noob like me, right?

Nah, that’s giving them too much credit. No one checks anything. No one bothers. They put anything out there no matter how fake or stupid. (And you should really see some of the stupid stuff on their page.) I saw that photo and immediately knew it was fake. I recognized that UFO from one of the most famous pictures in all of UFOlogy. It is lifted from one of the McMinnville, Oregon photos from 1950.

mcminnville01

Not just a similar object, but the same exact photo. Same lighting. Same silhouette. Same everything except that the doctored photo is so badly done it is a lot blurrier. (To be fair, some of that blurriness came when I enlarged it. Go to their page for the original.) I saw their post, recognized the photo, googled “UFO over farm house” and found that picture in under 20 seconds. The giveaway that it is the exact image is the way the light- and possibly the grain of the photo- makes the left top edge of the object appear to be pointed. Look closely in the Facebook post, it’s there too. I didn’t need any computer skills, I used my own two eyes!

And if you think that it looks like something hanging from a wire, that’s the common claim of debunkers.

That picture dates back to 1950. It is over 65 years old and has been reprinted in books all over the world since then, not to mention the internet. But did the “media phenomenon” recognize it? Nope, no one even bothered to look into it for a second.  It took me to discover that it was a doctored picture? Way to go George Noory.

      It is insulting, even to the guests. Noory often doesn’t even listen to what they say before moving on to another question, sometimes one the guest answered while Noory wasn’t paying attention.

          I’ve never given Beyond Belief a shot since it it beyond my belief that people think George has anything interesting to say. But George is never going away because he is a good company man. From what I’ve read online he has less power over the guests and the show in general than most people think. (But that doesn’t change how bad he is at his job.)

        He doesn’t want to be challenged because he really knows very little about the topics on the show. He does know about the bible, I’ll give him that, but that’s it. Yet when, some months back, he had a pair of guests whose views and interpretations of the bible disagreed with his, rather than discuss or debate them, he just went to commercial and came back without them, claiming they had to rush off. He had a lot to say after they were off the phone but little when he had them on.

    I cannot stand C2C anymore. The only time I listen is when there is a guest host. The bumper music with Art Bell was as much a part of the experience of listening to the show as the content. Noory is ridiculously boring. He talks incessantly about money (crypto currency), and maybe about three other topics over and over and over……. The bumper music sucks. I call it “old man music”. He thinks he is Sinatra. And one thing I hate so very much is that damn vitamin pusher once a month. Who the hell wants to listen to two hours of that crap? I hate infomercials! I found other things to listen to instead. It’s a damn shame what he did to Art Bell’s legacy.

          I thought it was just me! I am so tired of Mr. Noory thinking he can sing, and worse than that, believing an audience wants to hear him sing. He’s like a goofy uncle at someone’s wedding reception. He seems to continually have ‘The Numbers Lady’ which annoys me to no end, and that doctor hawking his pill packages for more money than I can ever afford. I guess only rich folks are the audience with C2C. I no longer have my subscription because because I only enjoy listening to guest hosts and it’s just not worth it. I went with Dave Schrader; M.I.T.D. who is an excellent host!!! Mr. Noory will be in the middle of a very interesting point with a guest, when the break comes, and then he never follows up with it once back from break. That is SO annoying!!!! Many times he doesn’t seem to be listening to what he is being told. He had this really nice woman on talking about reincarnation involving what children tell us. He said to her “do you have much of a problem with the parents who don’t believe in reincarnation?” She had to remind him twice that parents who DON’T accept reincarnation AREN’T a part of the group… duh. Twice she had to mention that. I can’t sit through any more of this irritating stupidity. I LOVE Ian Punnit, George Knapp, Jimmy Church, ect., but I’m much too tired of George Noory to stay with C2C. Similar content on M.I.T.D. and with the same wonderful Interviewer/Host Dave Schrader. I subscribed and don’t have commercials either.

    Pushing so many remedies/books and George constantly interrupting the guests/dropping the callers and not following on the topic. Instead of giving a
    follow up insight to the guest, his follow up is “east from the rockies” next!
    After listening to Art for so many years, I still find myself tuning in to Coast every night hoping for a miracle to happen just to turn it off as soon as the onslaught of commercials start endlessly and that awful snorting commercial that almost tears up my ears in the middle of the night. All the magic that Art created..unfortunately, left with him when he left.

    Just listened to Ghost-to-Ghost. Used to be one of the best shows of the year, back in the day.
    Today, the first hour, which actually was the second hour because the first was news based, was some lady talking about haunting but it wasn’t really ghost stories.
    Then, we got an 90 minutes of calls — which I am not sure Noory even listened too — before Boring George read us an Edgar Allen Poe story I’ve never heard of, well I’ve heard of it on C2C because he reads it every year., to close out the final 30 minutes of the show.
    Always been a night person, worked the night shift in the newspaper industry for many years, and got hooked on C2C during Art’s glory days.
    Ever since then, it’s more and more become nothing more than background noise.
    The opening guest is usually hawking a “medicinal” remediy that will probably kill you more than help you.
    The first 10 minutes of every hour is news and commercials and you get 10 more minutes of that at the bottom of the hour along with an infomercial sandwiched somewhere in between.
    I don’t want to date a paranormal enthusiast and I definitely don’t want to go listen to George sing.
    The show is much better on the weekends with the guest hosts.
    Other than that, it’s nothing more than background noise.

      You’ve summed it up really well. When they shifted away from 4 hours shows with one guest, George said it was what the listeners wanted. The truth was clearly and obviously that George is incapable of doing a long-from interview with anyone, let alone anyone interesting. As for the first hour “medicinal” guests, that is clearly an infomercial and I am positive that money changes hands somewhere. That George is involved is painfully clear simply from the “Norrybeets” website. His name is in the address of the product he is selling! However, George may influence the choice of guests, but he does not own or run the show. Someone else higher than him has to be making money too or else the quacks would not be on week after week. I truly think the FCC needs to look into this. It is misleading, if not dishonest.

I understand there are some callers who have mental challenges, so George accommodates them. However, most of his guests are charlatans. Numerology??? Really??

      Hello Mr. Hoagland, by chance you wouldn’t be related to the Hoagland that was on Coast to Coast all the time would you? Anyway, I agree that the show has went off the rails with George Norry. The Coast to Coast Facebook page shows by its comments that people are very dissatisfied with the direction of the show has gone. Infomercials that they pass off as a show fake or paid callers. The only it is worth listening to is when they have the substitute host on, like Richard Serette, Jimmy Church, or George Knapp. I can’t Ian Punnet by the way. But you’re right, I agree, I’m going to be forwarding a link to this blog to a friend that I have at my local radio station. Thanks for your comment. Have a great day.

    First off I agree that George Noory is a terrible interviewer. Boring. Will ask one question and will literally cut the guests answer short with a completely unrelated question. Constantly.

    That being said, saying that you debunked that photo is a joke. You bring up the lighting on the object as proof, yet in the farmhouse picture the the left side is shaded, and in the nazi photo the objects right side is shaded. And if you say the image could of been “flipped” or “mirrored” then it negates your other point of proof which is the left side looking “pointy.” Noory talks to the right people, I just want to see someone else talk to the right people.

    So it looks like I have to be the conspiracy guy once again but, since it seems to me that the majority of C2C listeners have the same opinion about this idiot, and continue to voice those opinions to the radio station itself or on different social media websites, why havnt they done anything about it? I mean seriously it seems like everyone hates this guy and they love to talk about it too. So why not fire him? A possible theory I have is that whoever started/ran C2C and was in control of choosing the type of content and direction the show went, isn’t around anymore. And whoever took over did so with a purpose, or an agenda perhaps? This show gained a huge following with Art, and no doubt helped wake a lot of people up. My theory is whoever now controls the content and chooses the hosts of the show etc. is one of the “bad guys.” They don’t want to wake anymore people up so they have Noory butcher interviews looking half asleep, and while they’re at it they can also start to mislead all of the diehard followers the show gained during the “Art Bell era” by bringing on kooks. Just a thought. Deuces

    You are right on target. We all miss Art Bell. George is no more than a greedy clown. The show has become a parody. Add the minutes of show content against ad time. I’ll guess it’s rapidly approaching 50% as. Please prove me wrong . I stopped listening years ago. Further, Why on earth would these pathetic callers wait for hours on hold, for Maybe a 10 second comment. Mr. Noory ,Please retire with your millions & turn the show over to someone else. And , fewer commercials. You are Too greedy

      I couldn’t agree more and I no longer listen to it when he is on. I always check the internet to see who’s on and usually just listen on the weekends when he’s off.

        Regular callers to radio shows are usually people who work in the back office, like sales staff or secretaries. It’s part of life at a radio station.

      I agree Keith, i’ve clocked the show on my Audacity, Show#1 at 1hour 03min. on average.
      Show#2 is clocked at 1hour 08min.
      That’s after i remove all the useless banter that Noory proudly exerts, (the intro & outro to each segment).
      I can easily delete a further 10 minutes by cutting out the ass kissing by the same callers, “Joe from Cali. love yah, blah blah” etc.
      As well as editing out pointless stuff that has nothing to do with the topic.
      If i’m up for it i’ll delete a further 10min. by removing a lot of extranuous talk from the guest along with silent gaps that may last from 1/2 to 1.5+ seconds long depending on the cadence of the speaker.
      It’s tedious & time consuming but well worth it. LOL!
      John B. Wells was the best.
      I like Lisa Garr too. More authentic & far less fake than gee-golly-willykers Mr.Knob-head.

    Noory lives in the 1950s & 60s with his “gee-goLLy-wiLLykers” routine.
    He continually asks guests, “aren’t people all good?, we must be WE ARE good”;…sigh!
    Noory only knows that because that’s the world he came from, the Leave it to Beaver world. I’ll second everyone above who has said that he never follows up with questions to an interesting topic. Even before coming on this site i wondered why he does that “continually”.
    John B. WeLLs really is the true host for this show. His astute questions an very minimal intrusions is what made him a favorite.
    According to Noory Alex Jones is a good friend of his and they hang out together when ever at restaurants. This shows me how naive Noory is. Jones has been known to backstab people for the smallest things. So many of his ex-mployees are speaking out against him. And oh yeah bomb-bomb Iran seems to be his thinking now with his some of his anti-Iran guests.
    Not to disparage the man because he does do good shows as well, the problem lies in consistency and not being so double sided.
    Thank-you for this blog and to all the comments.

      I never made that 1950s era connection but you are so right.

      I’d like to post here when I get frustrated with Coast to Coast and George Norry and whoever his handler is or the puppet master as I would like to put it. On the CTC Facebook page, myself and others had been blocked from commenting not for any nasty comments but just for voicing our concerns and disagreements for the direction of the show. They never seem to pay attention or don’t care how the show has been ruined by the increasing ads, the infomercials that they pass off as a show, they insult our intelligence, and I;m sorry to say there aren’t many options for ones like us and they know it. I appreciate your post and I agree wholeheartedly with your opinion. Good points and thanks.

    George is just an extremely limited person. No intellect, curiosity or ability to follow a conversation. He’s turned the show into a shillfest!! Fake dating sites and overpriced “supplements.” I simply cannot listen anymore. It ia a shame what Premiere Radio condones!! The only host worth listening to is George Knapp. I feel sorry for any guest who’s interviewed by anyone else…

    I’ve had an epiphany!!! George is Inspector Clouseau!!! Watch any of those movies and tell me differently!!! He even looks like him!!! And we, like the hapless chief inspector, are left wanting to kill him because of his stupidity. Mystery solved!!!!

    I’ve been a C2C listener for several years. Just caught the tail end of Art Bell before Ramona died + he went off. To the present .. listening to George Noory the past couple of yrs approx.has become almost unbearable. Why do I still listen ? Mostly for the guest hosts (Richard Syrett’s my favorite) + for the occasional good topics. Just to give one small example of his dumb questions, etc getting worse – the other night the topic was on the Bible + prophecy. I cannot remember the exact details but the guest was speaking about a judgment God gave in the Old Testament that caused a great catastrophe. In my opinion, Anyone with sny Catholic or Protestant background at all (he made clear he was raised Roman Catholic) Or -Any imagination at all could understand what happened + why from a religious standpoint, but Mr. Noory in that Incredulous ‘shocked’ childlike voice says ” WHY?
    Would God Do That ???!!!” I was embarrassed for him..+ he is almost always saying things like this. Or, interrupting guests constantly, pretending to be interested in a topic + not convincing at all. But my last ‘beef’ that REALLY drives me up a wall about him is that, it is bad enough the huge amount of commercial breaks the show now has, (about 10 mins program to 20 mins + ads) But -Mr. Noory is doing an Increasing + disturbing amount of commercials himself !! Does this man Not make enough money?? Besides that..It is Sooo far removed from what the ORIGINAL COAST was all about !! It was Once a cutting edge, bucking the establishment program about ‘Alternative’ subjects. Now he is revealing himself as a self-centered, materialistic , inept host. PLEASE bring back a REAL C2C Host !!

      I used to think the Bible was the only thing George had even a bit of knowledge about but lately I’ve changed my mind.
