Janecek, Lambert head to K-Talk
Local politicos Brian Lambert and Sarah Janecek are the latest additions to the programming lineup for Clear Channel Radio's new FM talk station, KTLK-FM (100.3). The pair will host a weekday show when the station launches next month.
"For a long time I've thought that a person who is right of center, moi, and a person who is left of center, Brian, would make a good talk radio team," says Janecek, co-publisher of the Politics in Minnesota news service. "To some extent people are burned out on the extreme left and the extreme right in radio."
Lambert is the former media critic at the Pioneer Press. He also worked briefly as a media adviser to Sen. Mark Dayton.
Janecek says that she believes the show will initially air from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays. But apparently the exact details are still being worked out.
Mick Anselmo, Clear Channel's regional vice president, is coy when asked about the show. "I can't confirm or deny," he says.
