Actor Larry Manetti and Nancy Manetti Return to National Radio.

LOS ANGELES – CRN Digital Talk Radio announced today that the “Magnum, P.I.” star and his wife will host “The Lounge with Larry and Nancy Manetti.”

The one-hour talk show premieres on Tuesday, June 6 on the network’s CRN 1 channel.


“The Lounge with Larry and Nancy Manetti” will also be available for download and air on the Genesis Communications Network (GCN). Listeners are encouraged to check local listings or visit for show dates and times.

Mike Garey will co-host and produce. Courtney Kadera serves as executive producer.


“The Lounge” is a franchise of daily entertainment-themed radio programs originating on CRN Digital Talk Radio. Hosts rotate daily and include actor Robert Conrad; actor and NFL legend Fred Dryer; and radio personalities Michael Horn and Erik Hines.

The Manettis hosted “The PM Show with Larry and Nancy Manetti” on CRN Digital Talk Radio from 2011-2016. The program frequently featured weekly guests from the Manettis’ circle of Hollywood friends.

“The Lounge with Larry and Nancy Manetti” will showcase a format different from its “PM Show” predecessor.  A heavier emphasis will be placed on show business stories and discussions about other topics. Cooking tips and other tidbits from Nancy Manetti will also become show staples.

“We are ecstatic to have Larry and Nancy Manetti back as part of CRN’s ‘Lounge’ series,” said CRN Digital Talk Radio CEO and President, Michael J. Horn. “Larry’s stories and humor will dazzle the audience.


“His inside look at the entertainment business makes for a fascinating show,” Horn added. “Nancy’s infectious energy and personality make them a fun, inviting couple to which people enjoy listening.”

Larry Manetti is perhaps most famous for his starring turn alongside Tom Selleck in the long running hit “Magnum, P.I.”  He portrayed “Orville ‘Rick’ Wright,” a playboy who managed an exclusive club – and also happened to be a weaponry expert.


He was series regular on “Baa Baa Black Sheep” (also known as “Black Sheep Squadron”) – which also starred fellow CRN personality Robert Conrad. Manetti has recurred in more than a dozen other television series, including his most recent turn as “Nicky ‘The Kid’ Demarco” on the CBS hit “Hawaii Five-0.”

Manetti is the author of “Aloha Magnum,” the first-ever book about “Magnum, P.I.” The tome also chronicles Manetti’s experience as a restaurateur, his work with Frank Sinatra – and how he “annoyed Elvis Presley and helped launch Michelle Pfeiffer’s career.”


Nancy Manetti has acted in over two dozen television series. She recurred on “Magnum, P.I.” and “Buck Rogers in the 25th Century.”


CRN Digital Talk Radio is an eight channel radio conglomerate producing and syndicating original programming to over 23 million homes nationwide through cable television providers and millions more on terrestrial radio, its mobile device app, plus several third party radio apps, and the web.

CRN also airs programs from other talk radio companies such as Salem Radio Network, Talk Radio Network, Radio America, Fox News Radio and several others.
