Rudy Giuliani puts NYC home back on the market after his radio show was canceled

Rudy Giuliani’s upscale Manhattan residence has returned for sale shortly after the former New York City mayor found himself suspended from his radio show at WABC, The Post has learned.

The property, located at 45 E. 66th St., has reemerged with a notable price adjustment. It’s now listed for $5.7 million, representing a $400,000 reduction from its most recent ask.

Giuliani had previously withdrawn the three-bedroom, three-bathroom unit from the market in February despite initial efforts to sell it amid ongoing legal battles.

Originally listed for $6.5 million last summer, the property saw a price reduction after only three months, reflecting Giuliani’s hopes of securing a swift buyer, which did not materialize.

The unit, represented by Serena Boardman of Sotheby’s International Realty, has a wood-paneled library, a wood-paneled dining room, leaded glass windows, moldings and an eat-in kitchen. The well-lit unit also looks out to views of the surrounding neighborhood.

The decision to relist the property coincides with Giuliani’s recent public dispute with the management of WABC, where he had been hosting a radio show.

Over the weekend, Giuliani, 79, engaged in a war of words with station owner John Catsimatidis, criticizing the media mogul’s commitment to free speech and alleging bias towards President Biden and the Democratic Party.

Catsimatidis fired back, accusing Giuliani of insubordination and making unreasonable demands for increased airtime and compensation.

According to Catsimatidis, “Last Tuesday, May 7, Mayor Giuliani gave me an ultimatum. He texted me that I had to double his airtime and compensation by May 28,” he said in a statement Monday afternoon.

“I told him I wanted to sit down in person to discuss this. He repeated his demand on Wednesday, May 8.”

The rift between Giuliani and WABC management escalated when reports surfaced indicating Giuliani’s intention to revisit contentious topics, including allegations regarding the legitimacy of the Georgia election results, during his radio show.

Concerned about potential legal ramifications, Catsimatidis reminded Giuliani of station policy prohibiting such discussions, only to witness Giuliani disregard them on air.

Following Giuliani’s refusal to comply with company policy and his continued defiance, WABC suspended him from his generous $15,000-per-month position pending further discussions.

“I said to him, you’re suspended, let’s sit down and talk on Monday, and then he went berserk on us,” Catsimatidis told The Post Friday.

Catsimatidis expressed disappointment over Giuliani’s reaction, describing the suspension as a necessary measure to address the situation.

Despite Giuliani’s arguments that he has a right to free speech, Catsimatidis emphasized his right to protect the radio station — which employs nearly 100 workers — from frivolous lawsuits.

“Rudy has publicly accused me of suppressing his free speech, calling my decision ‘unconstitutional’ and a violation of the First Amendment. However, as a licensee of the FCC, the First Amendment grants me the rights and responsibilities to protect WABC,” the mogul added.
