Armstrong & Getty is a morning drive radio show and television show airing in California and Hawaii on several Clear Channel radio stations. The call-in format talk show is a mixture of political commentary, observations on local, national, and international news as well as reflections on social issues presented with humor.

The show[edit]

Armstrong & Getty airs live on KSTE in Sacramento, CA. The show won Best of Sacramento twenty four years in a row.[1]

Doug Stephan incident[edit]

On July 28, 2010, Armstrong and Getty were tipped off by a listener that a fellow radio talk show host, Doug Stephan, had been stealing audio material from the Armstrong and Getty show, editing the audio, and using it in his show in an attempt to portray it as if he were speaking to their caller.[2][3]

During that same broadcast, the hosts were able to speak to Douglas Stephan, himself, regarding the plagiarism that appeared evident upon comparison of the duo's show content and Douglas Stephan's "callers" some days later. Stephen never admitted to the allegations, but apologized, saying that the calls were misplaced and accidentally played on his Good Day show.[4]

Notable facts[edit]

In September 2008, both Armstrong and Getty were named to Sacramento Magazine's 100 Most Powerful and Influential list.[5]

The duo emcees for various events in Northern California, participating in The Great Debate to "Get Out the 2006 Vote",[6] and opening for a few of political commentator Michael Savage's live shows.

Comments regarding Sacramento[edit]

In August, 2000, on their daytime show Armstrong and Getty discussed a Time magazine article on diversity.[7][8] At the time, the Mayor Heather Fargo of Sacramento was allegedly "mad to hear the show denigrating that distinction (regarding Time's honoring Sacramento)" and attempted to rally support in opposition of the comments.[7]
