I joked the other day with John Rothmann: "You're too smart to be on the radio." I was kidding of course but the more I thought about it, maybe I was on to something.
I get a fair amount of criticism that Rothmann only knows foreign affairs, the Middle East and presidential politics --huh?
We're in the early stages of the 2016 Election. The Iowa Caucuses are in January. Hillary Clinton stories are already invading the Sunday talk shows. So, yeah, if you love politics, you're in heaven.
Enter Rothmann. Maybe, maybe not.
Rothmann should be the obvious selection for "Talk 910"'s newly available 10 AM-1 PM time slot. I mean, the choice is too obvious. Anyone else is a slap in the face to a Bay Area audience looking for intelligent radio.
Rothmann brings an aura to the radio that is addictive if you listen long enough. When I first began to listen to him I thought he was a little too regal but when I heard his interviews; when I became riveted to his historical audio recordings; his political acumen (He worked for Dick Nixon and served as an aide to Senator Milton Marks); then it became appointment radio to listen to Rothmann.
Screw all the one-trick pony stuff. Rothmann knows his stuff. More importantly, this is going to be a monumental election. If the minions at "Talk 910" have any credibility, they owe it to their audience to hire Rothmann.
