With next month’s inauguration of hoops-shooting Barack Obama comes a new era in American history.
And with it, a new chapter in talk-radio history – one in which conservative-dominated dials must adapt to our nation’s voracious appetite for change.
But by that time, BlogTalkRadio will be ready. Because tonight at 8 p.m. ET we’re getting a jump on the changing of the guard with the launch of Game On!.
John: Brash Beantown wag.
Shomari: Wicked D.C. wit.
Hosted by Kevin Ross – an African-American Republican from Los Angeles – and David McLaughlin – a white Democrat from outside Atlanta – the hour-long show features a spirited West Coast- East Coast, conservative-liberal, black-white take on the week’s most provocative political issues.
Kevin and David began making waves in October by taking top honors in FOX News Radio’s Battle of the Blog Talkers, a tournament to select America’s best blog talkers from each side of the political spectrum. Their prize? A weeklong gig co-hosting FOX Across America with Spencer Hughes.
Regular Game On! commentators include Boston-based John Breneman of the Boston Herald, and Washington, D.C.-based Shomari McKenzie of WKXN Radio in Montgomery, Ala. – who’ll be weighing in with “Satirical Soapbox” reports. These devilish diatribes tip their hats to Andy Rooney while kicking things up a notch.
Chad: Change THIS.
Also, Princeton, Minn.-based Chad Everson of BlogTalkRadio’s Grizzly Groundswell – a Battle of the Blog Talkers finalist – focuses on issues concerning middle America, with his conserv- ative-as-ever “Grizzly Growl” reports.
Plus, newsmaker guests from inside and out of the Beltway.
And last but not least, live listener chats, calls and (dare we say) confrontations.
