The Northern Alliance of Blogs has a very exciting announcement -- we will be starting our own radio talk show in the Twin Cities on March 6th!
Thanks to our good friend and Lord High Commissioner, Hugh Hewitt, an opportunity arose for us to create a live show for our local Salem Communications Network affiliate, AM 1280 The Patriot. Up until recently, AM 1280 The Patriot had mostly repeats of their weekly shows airing all day Saturday and Sunday, but while Hugh was out here for The Patriot Forum, he suggested that we could create live programming in order to boost their audience. The station was delighted to meet with us, and today Mitch Berg (from Shot In The Dark) and I met with station management to finalize the arrangements.
Starting on March 6th, we will have a three-hour live show aired in the Twin Cities. Eventually, if we don't stink, we hope that AM 1280 The Patriot will have other options for broadcast such as live internet streaming, but for now we're tickled to be on the air in our local area. As the show develops, we will be updating everyone on the arrangements and news.
UPDATE: Dang! Mitch scooped me. Fastest blogger in the West, he is.

Don't think of it as a "scoop". Think of it as "Team Coverage".

Huge! Can't wait to stream it on the net. In the meantime, I'd love to hear some of it, if there's any other way.
I've been on the radio for nearly a decade now, but never in a talk show format. I bet it'd be a blast.

Hmmm thinking of the mischief that could be wrought. J/k.

Though there is no southern Alliance,
I sure hope to find a way of tapping your show down here in Tucson, Az.
