ABC RADIO’s syndicated talk-show host MICHAEL BAISDEN will head an election results watching event in FLORIDA TUESDAY NOVEMBER 4th. He is scheduled to broadcast an extended version of his program with a live audience. BAISDEN initiated the JENA SIX MARCH in LOUISIANA last year and was recently featured on CNN’s special series “BLACK IN AMERICA.”
The event is expected to welcome more than 3,000 FLORIDA voters to THE GULFSTREAM PARK RACING & CASINO in MIAMI. BAISDEN will broadcast live from the event and extend his normal broadcast hours to offer listeners in-depth coverage of the presidential election results as they are announced.
An impressive array of guests is expected to participate including U.S. Congressman JAMES CLYBURN, FORREST WHITTAKER, SEAN “P. DIDDY” COMBS, JOHN LEGEND, GAYLE KING, ALFRE WOODARD, REGINA KING and ALICIA KEYS. They will join Baisden on the air during the show to offer their insights. Representatives of Senator BARRACK OBAMA’s FLORIDA campaign team will also be in attendance.
“This election presents American voters with the first African-American candidate and only the second female candidate to be represented on a major party ticket, which has driven the conversation with the audience on my show for months now,” said MICHAEL BAISDEN. “Our listeners realize this is a historic moment and we want to be able to stay right there with them as we learn who will be the country’s next president.”
