January 2, 2008 at 2:48 PM (PT)
AMERICAN GENERAL MEDIA Talk KERN-A/BAKERSFIELD adds a SATURDAY show for CALIFORNIA State Senator and frequent KERN guest ROY ASHBURN. ASHBURN will handle 4-6p PT SATURDAYS beginning JANUARY 5th.
"I'm looking forward to allowing the listeners be the star of the show as we talk about the issues whether they be local issues right down to the neighborhoods in BAKERSFIELD and KERN COUNTY or issues that affect the State or Nation," said ASHBURN, who has filled in for local hosts INGA BARKS and SCOTT COX on the station.
Interim PD COREY COSTELLOE added, "This is a great chance for the listeners of KERN to hear from guests especially on the Democrat side that wouldn't normally grant interviews to KERN's regular hosts. Sen. ASHBURN is a great representative for our county and I think he'll be a great host as his personality translates on the air."
