As if a new show on a newly rebranded station is not exciting enough, I’m pleased to reveal that our time together will involve a little more than 7-10 a.m. locally on the new 660 AM The Answer (KSKY) in Dallas-Ft. Worth.
On Fridays starting next week, I will begin my day a little earlier, filling the Bill Bennett Morning in America time period 5 to 8 am Central on the Salem Radio Network. At eight, I will scurry from the second-floor network studios to my usual first-floor location for two local hours.
(If all of this works out well, maybe I can get them to spring for some kind of Batcave pole to slide down).
After listening to the thoughtful, provocative show Bill has done for eight years, it is a great honor to fill the Friday slot which has been filled by a variety of hosts over the years, including Rick Santorum, former RNC Chair Michael Steele, and most recently Bill’s talented colleague and former producer Seth Leibsohn.
They have all done a great job. I hope to bring whatever gifts I have into that time slot and take the nation into the weekend with the best I can offer.
I spoke to Bill today, and to his producer Chris Beach and to Operations Director Claude Jennings. All were more than gracious, and enthused to begin a new relationship. My gratitude cup has been overflowing for a while now, and more just poured out.
As we head into the weekend, I am poised and ready to spring into action 7 am Monday on the new AM 660 The Answer (KSKY) for everyone in my Dallas-Ft. Worth listener family. Now I have 5 am CT Fridays to look forward to, and I hope you look forward to it as well.
I have never been more mindful of the blessings from God that I do not deserve, and the blessings of support from the public that I will do my utmost to deserve in every way.
Have a great weekend, everybody, I may weigh in over the weekend with some thoughts about where we’ve been and where we’re going.
Wherever you’re going, be safe, be thankful and be mindful of how lucky we all are as Americans.
Talk to you Monday morning!
