WASHINGTON--Former Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.) will be hosting a nightly radio talk show on WIND-AM; Robert Feder has the scoop at TimeOutChicago.com.
I am 100 percent not surprised. The outspoken, provocative Walsh seems a natural for radio hosting on a station with a right-wing tilt. This is a big perch for him if he explores a statewide run in a comeback bid. He was defeated for re-election last November by Rep. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.)
From Feder, who formerly covered the radio and TV beat for the Chicago Sun-Times: "As first tipped here in January, Walsh has agreed to sign on as a Monday-through-Friday talk show host on WIND-AM (560), the Salem Communications conservative news/talk station. If all goes as planned, his show will air from 7 to 9pm, starting March 18."
Walsh today, according to a Tweet from him: "Joe Walsh @WalshFreedom
On my way to our states Capitol with the Mchenry County Sportsman's Association to support Gun Owners Lobby Day. Watch out Springfield!"
