GHB Talk WIST-A/NEW ORLEANS adds TALK RADIO NETWORK's MANCOW MULLER for mornings, taking over from KAARE JOHNSON, who is running for the ORLEANS PARISH City Council. JOHNSON continues as co-host of the new CHARLES GRANT TUESDAY 4-5p CT show, co-hosted by GRANT, the SAINTS' defensive end, live from SHULA'S restaurant at the J.W. MARRIOTT.
"With our local host KAARE JOHNSON throwing his hat into the ring for City Council member at-large in ORLEANS PARISH, WIST 690 felt it was the right time to introduce MANCOW to NEW ORLEANS," said GM DAN FRAZIER. "Everyone supports KAARE in his attempt to bring truth to local government, and we know New Orleanians will really identify with MANCOW."
The station is also simulcasting crosstown PBS affiliate WYES-TV's special "RESHAPING NEW ORLEANS" on SEPTEMBER 20th at 7-8p CT, followed by a one-hour call-in show hosted by WIST's ERIC ASHER and SHANE WARNER. The special will be hosted by FOX affiliate WVUE-TV (FOX 8) anchor JOHN SNELL.
