Bennet will be on the Jim Bohannon Show tonight to talk about China and Cyber Security on the eve of the President’s summit with China’s President Xi Jinping and the 1989 anniversary of Tiananmen Square massacre.
THE JIM BOHANNON SHOW
Jim Bohannon talks to special guests and his loyal callers about a spectrum of topics ranging from current events and politics to entertainment and pop culture. Jim is on the air with the newsmakers who are on the scene.
ABOUT THE HOST
During the 1980s he was a fill-in for Larry King when King had his popular nighttime national radio program. He also does much work with the Smithsonian Associates. He was inducted into the National Radio Hall of Fame in 2003.
Bohannon took over as permanent host during Larry King’s late night time slot on January 29, 1993, when King moved his radio show to the afternoon. His radio program is called the Jim Bohannon Show, which is heard on over 300 affiliate radio stations nationwide and is produced by Dial Global (successor to Westwood One, itself the successor to the Mutual Broadcasting System, Larry King’s original radio network). He broadcasts from Washington, D.C., whereWFED (as successor to the now defunct Washington Post Radio) is considered his flagship station today.
The show airs Monday through Friday from 10:00 PM to 1:00 AM Eastern Time (02:00 to 05:00 UTC during daylight saving time, 03:00 to 06:00 UTC during standard time). Each segment of the show features guests for interviews and calls from listeners. His show usually deals with politics and popular culture. In the event that Bohannon is not hosting that night’s show, a substitute host (chosen by Dial Global) takes his place. Substitute hosts have historically varied in nature and political views greatly; past substitute hosts include conservative talk host and comedian Dennis Miller, progressive talk host Leslie Marshall, and comedienne Joan Rivers.
