New York City Broadcaster Patty Steele’s podcast where she interviews her 26-year old son about his heroin addiction and his journey to recovery will air on WCBS-FM, WNEW-FM and 94.7 The Block this Sunday at 6AM.

Steele co-hosts Scott Shannon in the Morning with Patty Steele on WCBS-FM in New York. She won a 2022 Gracie Award from the Alliance for Women in Media Foundation for the podcast.

Steele interviews her 26-year-old son Jake about his heroin addiction and his journey to recovery.  As a mother of three, Steele reveals her struggle through the ordeal that simultaneously occurred with her breast cancer diagnosis.  With five years of sobriety under his belt, Jake and his mom decided it was time to make their story public with the hope of helping others.

Steele said, “It’s important that we take the stigma away from addiction issues and talk openly about what is truly affecting our children. I’m so grateful that Jake and I are in such a good place that we’re able to share our journey.”

Audacy SVP/Programming Jim Ryan states, “I cannot imagine what Patty and her son went through, and believe it is a story that families need to hear.   I’m hoping by airing it on our stations we can spread the word to a greater audience and encourage people to download and listen to the podcast.   It is rare to hear such a raw, emotional story as this.”

Director of News and Programming 1010 WINS and 1010 Ben Mevorach comments, “Patty’s conversation with her son is heartbreaking, inspiring, life-affirming, and compelling. It is one of the most important podcasts to come along in a very long time. What makes it so powerful is its authenticity. You can feel the pain and unrelenting love for her son on this very personal journey. Patty is brave beyond words to share and explore all that has happened and because her story could be any parent’s story, every parent will find a part of themselves in it.”
