As CDNews radio expands its lineup, we wondered, what does it take to make a successful, entertaining show? Well, I remembered an interview I did a few years ago with some great advice for broadcasters. Here is radio broadcast talent Chris Baker, formerly of KTLK FM in Minneapolis with advice for the new broadcast enthusiast. His interview is both enlightening and entertaining. Watch the never before seen interview here.

Breitbart TV Editor-in-Chief and Blog Talk legend Larry O’Connor successfully made the transition from one of the highest rated Internet radio shows to terrestrial radio recently. So, we wondered if that was a future possibility for some of our favorites, like our own Kira Davis for example. Time will tell, so tune in and listen! Conservatives and libertarians are not alone as long as we have great Internet Radio hosts like those on CDNews Radio, available on Blog Talk Radio.

Baker announced he will host the new afternoon drive time for Omaha, Nebraska radio station, 1110 KFAB. His first day as host will be February 11, 2013.

Larry O’Connor can be heard on FM 105.9 WMAL in Washington DC.

Allen West – "Media is trying to put me against Cain"

Early Wednesday morning Rep. Allen West was asked to comment on the latest Herman Cain scandal while being interviewed on the WMAL Morning Majority  radio show.  “Beyond reassessing his campaign, he probably needs to understand that he is a distracter for what’s going on right now and we should move on,” Rep. West said. “That would be my advice to him.”

West’s comments immediately went viral and became the subject of ire for many conservatives who felt West had betrayed Cain and fallen prey to the liberal media’s game of Republican bashing.  Several hours later West released this statement via his Facebook account:

“The media is trying to put me against Herman Cain. I guess its good for them to see two black men against each other. The facts are I am not telling Cain to step down. That is his decision and his only. What I said is the media focus on these incidents and “alleged affairs” are a distraction, and we as a country need to move on from this subject and get the focus on what the GOP contenders can seriously do for this country.”

With Republican and conservative voters already extremely sensitive about the primary race and the state of GOP unity in general, West and other politicians will be treading lightly in the coming weeks.
