Voice of San Diego posed the obvious question when KOGO radio show host Carl DeMaio pulled papers to run for the 50th Congressional District:
State Senator Joel Anderson weighs in to us: “It would be inappropriate for KOGO to continue Carl’s radio show without offering equal time to the other candidates.” DeMaio responded: “I am not a candidate at this time and have until Friday to decide whether to submit my papers.”
However, legal sources tell SD Rostra that might not be the case and are calling on KOGO to do the right thing. The station also has to stay clear of any problems with the FCC.
Admin correction: The original post above noted that KOGO’s Cliff Albert was being call on to address the DeMaio issue. As the news director, Albert oversees the news staff and news programming. The talk show hosts report to KOGO Program Director Brian Long.
