Texas Speaker of the House Dade Phelan appeared on Dallas talk radio Monday to discuss what is being done to prevent House members from leaving their posts, as Texas Democrats have done.

Two weeks ago, 50 lawmakers staged a walkout and flew to DC to avoid voting on a new election bill. 

Phelan joined the Chris Salcedo Show on WBAP News Talk 820 AM and 99.5 FM to discuss a potential solution.

“It started out as a ploy for them,” Phelan said. “They (Democrats) get on a private jet, they fly to DC maskless, they contract COVID, and they give COVID to the staffers at the White House, in my opinion, it has been a disaster from day one.”

Phelan said state Republicans plan to hold a series of special sessions all year long to complete unfinished tasks which in this case is a controversial elections bill that would ban drive-thru voting and 24-hour voting. 

“I applaud the governor for his resilience,” said Phelan. “There is a lot to address in the special session and it’s the governor’s decision to keep bringing us back.”

Phelan said that he has never seen the Republicans as unified as they are right now in the legislature.

“I ran for office, I took an oath of office to defend the Constitution,” Phelan said. “When it’s time to do work, you show up and do the work.” 

The Chris Salcedo Show is heard on WBAP NewsTalk 820AM from 9 am – 11 am every weekday morning.

SiriusXM radio host Howard Stern told “Morning Joe’s” Joe Scarborough and Willie Geist in an extensive interview that MSNBC is the network for him regarding cable news consumption. 

Stern stated that he’s a major fan of “Morning Joe” and went the extra mile to say that he and co-host Joe Scarborough share the same political idealogy.

“I watch you guys every morning,” Stern said (h/t Mediaite). “I really enjoy the show. Oddly, I agree politically with almost everything Joe says. I don’t think there’s much difference there.”

The radio host thanked MSNBC for providing him with what he loves: 24/7 news. Additionally, Stern offered a shoutout to network host Symone Sanders and stated he’s no fan of Dateline repeats.

“By the way, I want to give a shoutout to MSNBC,” Stern added. “Thank God you don’t play the old Datelines anymore on the weekends. I like news. I watch this channel exclusively for news. I tune out on the weekend. 

“It’s like all news stuff. I’m watching old Datelines. I like when you guys are onI like news 24/7, and now I find I’m getting it. I get Symone on the weekend. Big fan of hers. Symone coming on strong. What can I tell you? I know the whole lineup.”

Charges against John DePetro have been dismissed as the radio host faced a trespassing charge related to an incident over the summer during a Monday court hearing.

DePetro was arrested in mid-August outside a home on Staples Avenue in Warwick.

Police searched the house several months earlier as part of an investigation into the disappearance of Charlotte Lester, who has been missing for six months.

“I respect our justice system and respect law enforcement, specifically the Warwick PD,” DePetro said on Twitter. “The search for Charlotte Lester continues as I resume efforts searching for answers into her disappearance and holding Mark Perkins accountable for his actions against myself and Ladybug.”

The man who lives there, Mark Perkins, was also arrested the following day after he allegedly charged at DePetro with a lawnmower while DePetro was live-streaming. 

Unlike DePetro, who had his charges dismissed, Perkins still faces an assault charge, according to court records.

Champlin Broadcasting Conservative Talk The Eagle 96.9 KQOB Enid/Oklahoma City and 1640 KZLS Enid will look a little different for its listeners as the station has rebranded.

Rather than calling itself The Eagle 96.9, the radio station will now be known as Freedom 96.9 (h/t Radio Insight). KZLS started simulcasting on KQOB at the beginning of this year after the 96.9 signal was leased to Citadel and Cumulus Media for nineteen years. 

The station features a syndicated lineup, including Hugh Hewitt, Brian Kilmeade, Dan Bongino, Mike Gallagher, Joe Pags, and Bill O’Reilly. Furthermore, with the rebrand possibly comes a new addition.

Freedom 96.9 is teasing the addition of Dana Loesch to the lineup as well to enhance the rebrand further as the station begins a new chapter as it provides news/talk to the residents.
