DeMaio will use radio show to continue his dialogue with loyal audience he built with daily show on NewsRadio 600 KOGO

San Diego — Radio was good to Carl DeMaio and his reform movement. Over four years, Carl DeMaio built his weekday DeMaio Report radio show on AM-600 into a ratings powerhouse in the southern California market. Now Carl DeMaio is back on the airwaves with daily editorials on the news of the day and an on-demand podcast at now and on other major platforms including iHeartradio, iTunes, Spotify, Spreaker, Amazon Alexa, and the Google Play store over the next few days.

“I’ve made the decision to go back on the air because my loyal listeners say they miss our dialogue each day and because I believe Republican candidates need to speak directly to voters without the bias and distortion of the liberal news media,” said DeMaio.

When DeMaio announced his campaign for US Congress, Federal Communications Commission equal time regulations required that he step down from his job hosting the DeMaio Report. In this new format, DeMaio is paying for the airtime for his daily editorials and will produce his on-demand podcast using campaign funds. DeMaio says the investment is well worth it.

“I believe in the power of news radio to inform and activate activists,” noted DeMaio. “I will be the first Member of Congress to produce a regular talk show – bringing voters inside the depths of the Washington Swamp to expose what is really going on and what activists can do to help drain that swamp,” said DeMaio.

DeMaio has long been known for trying new things in campaigning and says Republicans need to break-the-mold of stale campaigns of the past. In his own campaign for Congress in California’s 50th District, Carl DeMaio broke records for a Republican congressional candidate by raising over $450,000 from grassroots donors in the first 72 hours, with an astounding $250,000 of that coming in the first 24 hours along. More than 5,000 donors contributed just an average of $88.89 each. Showing sustainability, more than 300 grassroots donors contributed twice during the 72 hour period.

  1. Just my 2 cents. Carl and his very organized and effective army of 600,000+ could turn our state RED before November 2020.. Who else could do it? Certainly not the Republican org. This org. just seemed to watch our city, county,. state turn BLUE. This group needs a new strategy and ground game but the one Tony unveiled at the 1st meeting in 2019 did not impress me.

    I do believe that East County Republicans and Independents want a person who has a proven record of hardcore conservative principles based on the constitution rather than a Republican moderate who will appeal to moderates but who conservative voters will have to vote for. Capeesh?
