Re: “Sunday open line

Just wanted those reading this blog to watch for my book =BROADCAST JOURNEY= Although my broadcast career began in South Dakota and continued in North Dakota, Kansas, Arkansas, Texas, Ohio and Oklahoma - Arkansas is one of my important stops. More than 2 dozen radio stations - 2 television stations resulted in lawsuits, arrests being fired from all but about three. =BROADCAST JOURNEY= will take you behind the scenes with Carl Connerton's fight with elected officials who meant well but treated their office as their own private company. Eldorado at KDMS in the 1970's as well as Russellville and my ten years covering then, Gov. Bill Clinton. Stand-by for some real prospective of how the system worked back then, the threats not only myself but Paul Meachem who hired me and Sonny West in Eldorado who paid to defend the Freedom of Informations act at KDEMS and Ron Rye in Dardenelle who also hired me then, fired me 8 days later. I won all cases. But what went on behind the lawsuits will be an education for all interested in working in the press.
