News Radio 600 KOGO in San Diego has hired former City Councilman Carl DeMaeio to co-host afternoons with Bob Sullivan. The DeMaio-Sullivan Report begins today from 1-4 p.m. The station says the show will combine investigative journalism with inside knowledge of politics and an eye on advancing solutions. While the show will focus primarily on local topics, it will also weigh in on national stories that have particular impact or relevance to San Diegans.
KOGO PD Brian Long said, ?We are thrilled to welcome Carl DeMaio to our lineup and I have no doubt that with his experience as a government watchdog and his inside knowledge of politics that this will be the most talked about show in San Diego.? DeMaio served four years on the San Diego City Council and is credited with helping reform city finances during one of the most turbulent times in the city?s history. At times both big business and big labor opposed his ideas, but in the end the vast majority of his prescriptions were adopted. DeMaio also garnered national media attention as a gay Republican willing to take on his own political party and challenge it to change.
