America’s Got a New Commander in Chief! (But Is Change Indeed on the Horizon?)

The promise of a better America.

Obama: The promise of a new nation.

Barack Obama has done it – gone and won the White House in what may prove to be the most significant presid- ential race of the past century.

But now that the mud has dried and the senator from Illinois stands be- fore us promising change, where do we the people stand?

That’s the million billion trillion-dollar question America’s top blog talkers are vowing to answer – or pass out trying.

Last month, Kevin Ross – an African-American Republican from Los Angeles – and David McLaughlin – a white Democrat from outside Atlanta – took top honors in FOX News Radio’s Battle of the Blog Talkers.

Now, the odder-than-odd odd couple is teaming up for an unpreced- ented event.

Tonight they’ll host a marathon special that’ll give scores of voters the opportunity to weigh in on whether Obama is equipped to lead our nation out of the quagmire of financial-market implosion, rising unem- ployment, escalating street crime, prohibitively expensive health care, still-unapprehended terrorist leaders, a protracted Iraqi War and other blights the Bush administration failed to tame.

Kicking off at 6 p.m. and running live until 12 a.m. ET, BlogTalkRadio’s Exit Poll ’08 will feature pundits from both sides the political spectrum, including:

Farai Chideya, host of National Public Radio’s News & Notes, Val Zavala, anchor of Los Angeles PBS affiliate KCET-TV’s Life & Times Tonight, Lee Bailey, publisher of the Electronic Urban Report, Rev. Leonard Jackson, special advisor to L.A. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, Julie Vanderpost, chairperson for California Republican Women for McCain, Wendy Davis, national field & training director for 21st Century Democrats, and Martha Mitchell Zoller, host of The Martha Zoller Show on WDUN-AM in Gainesville, Ga.

Also joining Kevin and David will be fellow BlogTalkRadio hosts – and fellow Battle of the Blog Talkers contestants – Chad Everson and Andrea Shea King.

But in the spirit of a new beginning, no pundit’s voice will be more important than yours: Kevin and David will do their damndest to get as many callers on the air as possible.

“Even if it means…” notes David.

“Breaking in on each other mid-sentence and…” add Kevin.

“It’ll be my pleasure,” says David.

Marathon Special to Take America’s Post-Election Pulse: Real Change – or Just More of the Same?

One of the longest White House races in U.S. history draws to a close tomorrow.

But come the day after, when the mud has dried, the votes have been counted and a president-elect stands before us promising change, where will we the people stand?

That’s what Kevin Ross and David McLaughlin are bent on finding out. And who better for the job than America’s best blog talkers?exitpoll-home-page1

BlogTalkRadio Hosts Go Big-Time—on FOX—for Election Showdown

Way back in 2004, when John Kerry was challenging George W. Bush for the highest office in the land, few Americans had ever heard the word blog—let alone spent much of their free time devouring the most passionate and incisive among them.

What a difference an embattled administration makes.fox-btr-bbt-300x250

Today, blogging is not only the New Journalism, it’s a major force in shaping our nation’s political opinions.

So it should come as no surprise that FOX News Radio has selected eight of BlogTalkRadio’s most passionate and incisive hosts to voice their opinions about Election 2008 in the mainstream.

Beginning Monday, Oct. 6 at 2 p.m. ET, four hosts from our Heading Left Channel and four from Heading Right will square off during a weeklong, one-on-one tournament that will determine the best blog talker from each side of the political spectrum.

In Round 1, Spencer will moderate a debate between two Heading Left hosts, who will each have five minutes of uninterrupted time to respond to the same topic. Listeners then vote (via mobile-text message and online poll) for their favorite blog talker, who in turn moves onto Round 3. Meanwhile, two Heading Right hosts square off in Round 2, with the most popular moving onto Round 4. And in Round 5, the Heading Left and Heading Right victors go head to head.

After each round, the topics will be opened to discussion with Spencer, as well as with listeners calling into the show.

Then, throughout the week of Oct. 20, live from 8 to 9 a.m. EDT, the Heading Left and Heading Right victors will join Spencer in co-hosting a special FOX News Radio Election 2008 series.
