“Iowa Talking Points” broke new ground last Friday with its first remote telecast. The broadcast was produced for live video stream, video, audio-on-demand playback, and radio rebroadcast by News/Talk 1540 KXEL and Mudd Advertising.

Jeff Stein, the program director and News/Talk 1540 KXEL host, hosted the telecast. Based in Iowa City, the event aired before the formal event and exceeded its anticipated 90-minute time slot.

Seven presidential candidates, including Gov. Ron DeSantis, Amb. Nikki Haley, Vivek Ramaswamy, Sen. Tim Scott, Gov. Doug Burgum, Gov. Asa Hutchinson, and Ryan Binkley, took turns speaking.

“There are very few opportunities to have access to this many candidates at one time,” Stein said in a press release obtained by Barrett News Media. “Engaging with them in this way gives our audience the best information free from sound bites and media filters.”

The program included interviews with Iowa’s U.S. Senators Chuck Grassley and Joni Ernst, State Attorney General Brenna Bird, and event host Rep. Miller-Meeks.

“While this was the team’s first live remote, with the number of additional events coming up before the Jan. 15 Iowa caucus, I’m sure we’ll take advantage of similar opportunities as they come up,” Stein said.

Mark Simone: Karl Rove Hasn’t Won Anything in 30 Years, So Why Is He on Fox News?

“And Rove, ‘he’s the architect!’. This guy hasn’t won anything in 30 years. And the only thing he ever did win — back in the 90s he won a bunch of races in Texas.”

As the first Presidential primaries approach, Republican challengers to Donald Trump continue to be pitched around the cable news landscape. Fox News analyst Karl Rove has been a proponent of former Gov. Nikki Haley (R-SC) and current Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL). 710 WOR host Mark Simone wonders why Rove’s opinion matters, and why he’s on Fox News to begin with.

During The Mark Simone Show Monday, Simone questioned why Rove is still viewed as a visionary of Republican politics when his record doesn’t stack up to the moniker.

“You hear Rove all over the place talking about Nikki Haley and Ron DeSantis. Forget it. And Rove, ‘he’s the architect!’. This guy hasn’t won anything in 30 years. And the only thing he ever did win — back in the 90s he won a bunch of races in Texas. He won an attorney general’s race in Texas (and) a state assembly race in Texas,” argued Simone.

“He helped Bush in Texas — George W. Bush — and he was always part of the Bush team and was always there in 2000. I don’t know that you can consider 2000 a great victory. It was pretty much a draw. Bush couldn’t beat Gore with enough votes to win. Remember, it had to go to the court to win, the Supreme Court.”

Rove has served as a political analyst and contributor at Fox News since exiting the Bush White House in 2008. He is also a columnist for The Wall Street Journal.
