OTB on NRA Radio

Cam Edwards has invited me to be on his radio program at around 4:20 Eastern this afternoon to discuss the issue of bloggers being given media credentials. Now, all I have to do is formulate a position on the issue.

Update: It’s over. Dean Esmay was on as well. Apparently, both blogging and talk radio are incestuous as every caller is a regular commenter on OTB as well! I apparently need to get a better telephone, as I could barely hear Dean or the callers, making responding to them a bit of a challenge.

  1. Absolutely not! I am completely against forming a position on this!

  2. Paul says:

    huh- I’d book you in an instant as a guest… but not on this issue… go figure.

    James: Good luck! FYI, I haven’t heard anything new back from the RNC beyond the initial “we’ll look into it” response I got from them…


  4. Eric Scheie says:

    Just finished listening to the show. You did a great job, and I hope to hear you again.

  5. Dean Esmay says:

    James was great. I felt like a jerk. It was fun though. 🙂

    I need to get to bed!

  6. Paul says:

    It was not your phone, that is typical in most talk studios.

    On the broadcast, Dean was much lower than you… Or maybe you just have a big mouth. 😉


    You did spend some time in Alabama huh 😉

  7. Jeff G says:

    I missed it. Did John Stevens win?

  8. jen says:

    Dang, I missed it too. Caring for a 1 year old didn’t allow for it.

    I’m sure you sounded great.

  9. Kevin says:

    You didn’t get to do an in studio visit? He’s local now.

  12. New Milestone Established
    I’m currently listening to Dean and James on NRA Radio. It would seem the new standard in blogging success has been established: being invited as a guest on a radio program. Question for Dean: Which was a bigger thrill…radio or…

    Radio Daze
    Dean Esmay got bit by the radio bug. He and James Joyner did about 30 minutes with Cam Edwards on his radio show. Now Dean says, “Radio’s fun. I want my own show!” I’ve thought for a while that blogs…

  15. Renaissance of a loophole?
    Since it’s recent launch, NRA Live is not only doing well, they’ve expanded. The show can now be heard on Sirius Radio. Plus, if you don’t have the Sirius equipment, there’s a special offer for NRA members. I’d be an…
