KWTX-A Hosts Local Debates

CLEAR CHANNEL Talk KWTX-A ("The Talk of WACO") was a proud partner in hosting and broadcasting a series of local debates that focused on two of the upcoming elections in WACO, TX. On WEDNESDAY, MARCH 7th, approximately 450 people packed the auditorium at the local UNIVERSITY HIGH SCHOOL to hear from candidates running in the GOP primary for MCLENNAN COUNTRY Sheriff and Texas House of Representatives, District 56.
The event was moderated by KWTX morning host SHANE WARNER. "To have this many people show up in the middle of the week to hear some local politicians talk about local issues is quite an accomplishment," WARNER said. "We were hoping for a good turnout but the interest from the community was beyond anything we could have imagined -- and this was just for a primary election! As the only local talk show in the WACO market, I felt this was the kind of event that only News/Talk 1230 and Talk radio could pull off. This illustrates the power of local talk radio to help inform the community about what's going on in their own backyard and bring voters and listeners access they otherwise wouldn't have."
