Politico reporter Carla Marinucci joined The Mark Thompson Show on KGO 810 Wednesday to discuss California gubernatorial candidate Larry Elder. 

Elder is one of 46 candidates vying to replace Gov. Gavin Newsom in the Sept 14 recall election. 

“Larry Elder has had a fanbase among conservative radio folks in Southern California for a long time,” said Marinucci. “But he’s never been elected to public office and he’s never been publicly vetted.” 

Marinucci said the voting public doesn’t know a lot about Elder including his finances or his personal life. 

“He hasn’t done a lot of sit-down interviews where he has outlined some of these issues,” said Marinucci. “We have had him numerous times to sit-down with Politico but no answer on that.” 

Last week, Barrett News Media reported that Larry Elder opted out of a debate hosted by his Salem Radio Network colleague Hugh Hewitt. 

“He is doing a Zoom press conference Friday, “Marinucci said. “But public events, no we are not seeing those.” 

Thursday, Elder spoke at a rally in San Jose where he promised to repeal COVID mandates.

New Jersey 101.5 Director of Content Anne Gress has departed the Townsquare Media-owned station.

Barrett News Media has learned that the station’s top programming boss has been let go as part of cost-cutting measures by the company.

Gress began programming New Jersey 101.5 in January 2018 after 14 years of leading CBS Radio’s classic hits station WOGL in Philadelphia. In 2020, she added programming duties at station WPST, a CHR station.

Her other prior stops include urban formatted Power 99 and smooth jazz WJJZ in Philadelphia, and Q105 in Tampa, among others.

Under her leadership, New Jersey 101.5 finished the Trenton spring ratings period with a 7.9 share in the 6+ demographic, 2nd overall among all local stations. The dominant talk brand featuring Bill Spadea, Deminski and Doyle, and Dennis and Judi also delivered a 5.2 share in the Middlesex-Summerset-Union market.

WBAP has announced that Carla Marion will join the station’s morning show in 2024.

In a post to X, the station announced that Marion will join longtime hosts Ernie Brown and Hal Jay in January.

Marion has a history in the Dallas radio market. She worked at all-news KRLD as a morning news anchor before being part of widespread CBS Radio layoffs in 2008 while on maternity leave. She subsequently joined WBAP as a news anchor and reporter in 2009 before departing the station in 2013.

She joins the Cumulus radio station after serving as a Communications and Media Specialist for the McKinney, TX Police Department.

In a post to Facebook, Marion shared that she was “extremely honored to have been asked to once again be part of this legendary team of broadcasters. I will absolutely miss everyone at the incredible McKinney Police Department who have been so supportive of me over these last six years. Y’all took a risk on hiring a civilian and I hope I represented you well. It was an honor to work among so many real life heroes.”

WBAP’s Morning News is heard from 5-9 AM each weekday morning on the Cumulus-owned station.

Megyn Kelly: Fox News Might Never Recover From Reputation Hit

Former Fox News host Megyn Kelly is set to co-moderate the fourth Republican presidential debate on NewsNation Wednesday. Ahead of the debate, Kelly has shared her opinions on credibility, and how Fox News has seen a hit in that department.

“That was a serious reputational wound that they took in connection with those [Dominion and Smartmatic false voter fraud] stories – up and down the line, in connection with all of those stories. They haven’t recovered from it,” Kelly told Semafor’s Max Tani. “Their audience isn’t what it used to be — in comparison to MSNBC and CNN, it’s fine. But their reputation in the industry hasn’t recovered. And I don’t know that it will.”

Kelly has been critical of her former employer in many aspects since she departed Fox News in 2017. She was a vocal critic of the network after it removed Tucker Carlson earlier this year.

As she prepares to moderate Wednesday’s event alongside NewsNation’s Elizabeth Vargas and Washington Free Beacon’s Eliana Johnson, Megyn Kelly was critical of moderators of the previous debate, especially NBC’s Kristen Welker.

“I know how to do it, and it’s frustrating for me to watch others do it and not have my own try at it,” she said. “They had this opportunity certainly at the last debate, and the one before that as well, but they just didn’t take it. Huge frustration of mine watching the earlier debates, especially the NBC one. This is not an interview. This is not a chance for Kristen Welker to ask a question of the candidate and hear whatever answers are interesting to her. No one cares. They can watch Meet the Press for that. We need to watch them debate each other so we can see what the differences are.”
