“I am very excited to launch this new platform for the message that resonated so well with supporters and young voters of New Mexico’s Third Congressional District during the recent primary election,” states Kokesh.
Don Davis, owner of Vanguard Media and KIVA 1550 AM, a reputable 30-year veteran of radio broadcast and ownership in New Mexico, brings Kokesh to a diverse line-up that features nationally syndicated and locally produced radio programming.
“Vanguard Media and KIVA are excited about our new station line-up that includes Adam Kokesh and the fresh, intelligent and young perspective he brings to our listeners. We look forward to this relationship that will also attract new listeners to the 1550 AM dial.” States Davis.
The Adam Kokesh Radio Show will initially air on Saturday afternoons and move to a Monday through Friday broadcast starting July 26, 2010.
While Kokesh’s airing is local, his radio show will also feature a national perspective as one of the youngest spokespersons of the Republican Libertarian national movement that is sweeping across the country and attracting thousands of traditional and young voters wanting a more accountable and responsible government.
Kokesh, a former Marine and veteran of the Iraq War, has garnered a tremendous countrywide support for his protest against the Iraq War after his homecoming and his support for better treatment and health care for returning soldiers. Kokesh’s You Tube channel videos have received over 250,000 viewers and his following is includes tens of thousands through his website and social networking sites.
“The topics of the radio show will be current and interactive,” states Kokesh. “I look forward to presenting a platform that will be engaging, thought provocative and encourage a call to action.”
