Saturday Morning Live for Aug. 5, 2017


Guest Host Jim McKinney will be discuss with Brett Bonner, of Saturna Capital (former KGMI new and media host) and Al Korelin, a natioally syndicated radio host whose focus is on the economy and politics, on tomorrow’s SML program at 8:00 AM.

Topic de jure will be:

  • The news media and insights on their the impact to our communities.
  • Evolution – From print papers, to radio, TV, Cable, Internet, and now social media.
  • Impact – How does it influence and direct our lives?
  • Advertising – Do dollars ($$$) drive news content?
  • Selective news – Catering to a specific clientele.
  • Professional journalism versus profit motives.

Can local media (Herald, KGMI etc…) survive Facebook and media monopolies?

    I remember singing a happy birthday to Brett Bonner years ago on air using my Marilyn Monroe breathy version. On a different note, the Wall Street journal at times appears heavily invested in the D.C. Swamp.

  2. Great Show this morning (8/5/17) – more of it please!

  3. It was good to hear Bret Bonner on the show. AlwayS enjoyed him when he was employed there
