NARN, The All-State Edition

The Northern Alliance Radio Network will be on the air today, with our six-hour-long broadcast schedule starting at 11 am CT. The first two hours features Power Line's John Hinderaker and Chad and Brian from Fraters Libertas. Mitch and I hit the airwaves for the second shift from 1-3 pm CT, and King Banaian and Michael Broadkorb have The Final Word from 3-5. If you're in the Twin Cities, you can hear us on AM 1280 The Patriot, or on the station's Internet stream if you're outside of the broadcast area.

Today, all three NARN shows have great guests. Volume I has the Washington Post's film critic Stephen Hunter talking about the summer offerings. Mitch and I have Eric Black, the longtime Star-Tribune editor who took their buyout and moved to the more openly partisan Minnesota Monitor. My NARN colleagues and I considered Eric one of the best people at the Strib and were stunned to hear of his departure, so expect lots of questions regarding the ongoing turmoil at the Strib.

However, King and Michael have topped us all in The Final Word, as they will have Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty on at 3:30 pm CT today. Pawlenty's name keeps appearing on lists of potential VP candidates for the Republican ticket, and he has spent the last session making an even better case for that than before. Listen while King and Michael talk with him about his efforts to hold the line on spending and taxes with a DFL-controlled legislature.
