John Rothmann is a master political analyst and a Middle East expert. A presidential historian too with a great deal of insight and thousands of stored volumes of historical artifacts in his SF home.
He was on the old KGO, doing the overnight show for 16 years before being shown the door in the almost-year-old bloodbath. Rothmann is a now a political commentator for NewsTalk 910.
I'm delighted to announce that Rothmann will be a guest on my upcoming radio show a week from Sunday, (Nov. 25, from 9-9: 30 PM on KOMY); of course, we'll talk the election, but with the situation in the Middle East growing more tense by the day, we will also discuss that powder keg.
*Ronn Owens had successful surgery, according to his wife, Jan Black, who posted on Owen's Facebook page that he was doing OK and that he hopes to return home this week.
I'm hoping Owens makes a speedy recovery. I'm also hearing from insiders who tell me his immediate return to KGO is doubtful, due to his ailment. Complicating matters is Owens contract termination at the end of the year.
Owens told Ben Fong-Torres a few weeks ago that he'll be "working somewhere" after the new year. This latest medical malady could affect that scenario.
