BONNEVILLE Talk KTAR-F/PHOENIX says that it managed a first at the IOWA CAUCUS, broadcasting live from inside an actual election night caucus. 8:30-noon host DARRELL ANKARLO did the play-by-play for over two hours from inside the caucus, using the same COMREX Access Portable that he used to broadcast his crossing of the U.S.-MEXICO border live last year.
"What we did was unbelievable. No one has ever been able to hear one of these caucus meetings unfold live on the radio," said ANKARLO. "It gave our listeners a front seat to the very raw political process so they could see how bizarre this thing really is."
