Best-selling horror author Stephen King has decided to offer an alternative to the local Maine right-wing radio talk shows. He held a press conference in Bangor, ME Tuesday (Aug. 22) to announce his new left-leaning radio program.

King hired former Green Party vice presidential candidate Patricia LaMarche and former television reporter Don Cookson to host “The Pulse Morning Show.” LaMarche ran for VP in the 2004 election alongside David Cobb.

During the press conference, King said, “We’re a little to the left, but we’re right.”

THe new radio show will air on WZON-AM and WZON-FM beginning Sept. 12 at 6 a.m. EST.

When the creepy killer fog rolls over the country or the alien clowns attack, we fully expect it to be the only radio station left.
