Apparently having The Advocate, The Times-Picayune, the Gannett newspapers, and the rest of the Louisiana media in his pocket wasn’t enough for Edwards. Now Governor Honor Code is kicking off a statewide radio show next week on the Louisiana Radio Network. He will also livestream it on the governor’s official website.
Gov. John Bel Edwards wants your questions – and he’ll take them live on the radio.
The Democratic governor’s office announced Thursday that Edwards will launch a monthly call-in radio show called “Ask the Governor.”
The show will broadcast around the state. It will kick off next week, on Tuesday at 2 p.m., and will air the third week of each month. The call-in number is 877-217-5757 FREE.
The radio program will not be the first for a Louisiana governor. Republican former Gov. Mike Foster at one point had a weekly call-in show.
The Louisiana Radio Network will broadcast Edwards’ show on stations in Baton Rouge, Lafayette, Shreveport, Monroe, Thibodaux, Alexandria, Slidell, New Iberia, Golden Meadow, Ruston and Amite.
“Ask the Governor” will also air online at www.gov.louisiana.gov and at www.la.radionetwork.com .
Instead of having Bob Mann, Lamar White, and the rest of his willing enablers in the Louisiana media spin for John Bel, he will spin himself directly to the Louisiana people. During the show, Edwards will try and blame Bobby Jindal for everything from ingrown toenails to the state budget, call for raising taxes, and try to pretend he is somekind of a conservative Democrat.
The John Bel Edwards show actually even be entertaining once you realize that it is entirely fiction.
In fact, we wish John Bel Edwards luck in his new radio career. We wish that Edwards would devote himself to perfecting his radio skills. The more time Edwards spends on radio is less time he can spend harming the state. Besides, after 2019, Edwards will need a new career anyway after he is evicted from the Governor’s Mansion.
