Alice Stewart to begin new local talk show

Alice Stewart, the former TV newswoman who went on to political stints with Mike Huckabee, Secretary of State Mark Martin, Rick Santorum and Michele Bachmann and now does political consulting, is heading to local airwaves.

Starting Monday, KHTE 96.5 The Voice will broadcast the Alice Stewart Show from 6 a.m. to 8 a.m. Monday through Friday. She'll provide both local and national perspectives to kick start a day to be devoted to wingn....., er, conservative syndicated political viewpoints. Think Mike Huckabee, Glenn Beck and Dennis Miller.

This will be another point on the dial for that devoted audience that Rush Limbaugh has milked so well and perhaps a little competition for Dave Elswick over at KARN. I had coffee the other day with Stewart about the coming show. She and I have tussled politically a time or three. She says she's interested in opening up the show to some contrary voices now and again, maybe even a leftwing wacko like myself. That's contrary to the sort of message control that Limbaugh, Elswick, the RPA and others follow, so give her points for that. Bob Steel tells me he never had a better show than the day the gun nuts stormed his morning show phones to berate me for providing access to the public record of concealed carry permit holders. Cage match radio.

From the release:

“I’m thrilled to have an opportunity to sit down with the newsmakers and elected officials in the Natural State and talk about the issues that affect people across the state,” Stewart said. “I look forward to engaging in respectful talk with guests from all political perspectives. Together we will put a face and a voice on events making headlines.”

...Capital City Broadcasting recently switched KHTE from pop-music to a talk and news format. They also transformed 93.3 KKSP-FM from news talk format to all sports, Sports 93.3 The Source, which is also broadcast out of Little Rock.
Their lineup includes shows hosted by former Razorback basketball player Pat Bradley, Bo Mattingly, Wess Moore, Mike Irwin, and Michael Smith.
