The spreading VPO media empire

Got a new gig. Pays just as well as this one, but it should be fun.

Every Monday morning at about 7:35, I’ll be talking politics and government on WKVT Radio, 100.3 FM and 1490 AM in Brattleboro. WKVT has a local morning show from 6-9 weekdays hosted by Chris Lenois. It’s always fun to talk politics; I’m also hoping this will give me a bit of a window on the concerns of southeastern Vermont, a place I seldom get to visit.

And this Monday only, for central Vermont listeners, I’ll be a guest on WDEV’s “Open Mike” with Mike Smith sometime during the 9:00 hour. (Will update when I know more.) You may recall that I’ve been critical of Mike in the past, and particularly slammed WDEV for replacing a real journalist, Mark Johnson, with a longtime Republican functionary. Well, they hired him, it’s their business, and I’ve said my piece.

Despite my occasional unkind words, Mike occasionally has me on to talk politics, which is the kind of politeness across the trenches that you often find in Vermont.

Anyway, happy to do it. Tune in if you can.

    I don’t listen to DEV during those hours anymore. The guy is terrible. There must be someone more competent in Vermont to do that 2 hr slot.

    Sure your wit, wisdom and prescient insightful analysis will be welcome down here. The FM doiesn’t have a very far reach, it hosts Coast2coastlive from 1am-5am, one of my all-time faves. Your addictive and wildly hilarious blog has readers from many walks who if not commenting at least read.
