Some radio stations are going all in on Trump.
Three stations in the Panama City area announced they will air two-minute clips of speeches by President Trump every hour until Election Day in 2020.
A station in Connecticut, WDRC, has Trumped the Florida stations by rebranding itself as ‘Trump 103.3.’ The station plans to air conservative talk shows from Mike Gallagher, Bill O’Reilly, and Ben Shapiro.
This is a great way to pump up Trump fans.
However, under FCC rules, stations must allow airtime to any candidate running for office. So they are required to offer Democrats airtime for advertisements.
I hope Democrats are invited on the station regardless of FCC rules because it’ll just be fun to hear “And joining us now on Trump 103.3, it’s Bernie Sanders.”
