I’m excited to announce that I will be hosting election night coverage on KPFT (Houston) 90.1 FM from 7 PM to (at least) 10 PM CST. I will be joined by a panel of knowledgable and entertaining Houston personalities, and guests will include interesting and noteworthy personages.
You can listen and participate live from anywhere around the country by going to KPFT.org and clicking on “Listen Live“.
Currently scheduled guests tentatively include:
- Lane Lewis: Chair of the Harris County Democratic Party
- Gilberto Hinojosa: Chair of the Texas Democratic Party
- Brad Friedman: Founder of The Brad Blog, an acknowledged expert on voting rules, systems, and suppression around the United States.
- Robert Hooks: Actor, producer, and civil rights activist.
- Amanda K. Wolfe: Activist for better mass transit in Houston, and greater transparency and accountability for how Metro’s dollars are spent.
One of the aspects of this show to which I am most looking forward is taking calls from listeners in Houston and around the country in order to hear about their election experiences. Whether you voted in Houston or Hastings-on-Hudson. Whether you voted on election day, or early voted, or absentee voted, we’ll want to hear from you. Was it easy or hard? Was the ballot easily understandable or almost unintelligible? Did you feel welcome at the polls, or were you bothered by poll watchers?
I hope you’ll be listening and participating.
