Doc Thompson Goes Nationwide: Stripping away more than cloths on the air for America’s benefit
One of the things that people most ask me when I’m out and about talking, is what will happen to Doc Thompson—what’s next for him? They ask me because Doc and I made a lot of waves in Cincinnati when he was on 700 WLW and people enjoyed the playful way that he dealt with very serious topics. Being a conservative talk show host with a lot of Marconi awards behind his many years of radio experience, Doc is one of those unusual people who have never let the cynicism of life catch up to him. He has a quality that traditional Americans find refreshing, so when he recently left his radio jobs in Cincinnati and Richmond Virginia to fulfill a position in Detroit on 1270 AM people became concerned. Then they nearly panicked when they learned that CBS radio was moving around their programming schedules, and that they might not get to hear Doc on the radio yet again.
In reality the opposite is true. Doc Thompson is actually expanding—he’s about to go into syndication all over the nation which is a deal he has been working on for a long time. The website that announces his next big step can be seen at the link below along with affiliate information for radio stations who want to bring his unique brand of radio to their airwaves.
Out of all the Doc Thompson broadcasts I’ve used here at the OW, the most popular, is his radio bit called “The Answer is C,” which was hilarious radio while at the same time making his point about why our society is in so much trouble presently. CLICK HERE to revisit that monumental broadcast.
Doc often fills in for Glenn Beck’s radio show when needed, so a national audience has already had a taste of what Doc has to offer. But it was after the Thanksgiving 2012 broadcast on the Glenn Beck Program that Doc really showed how important his unique radio style could be in a nation that has never been so divided without being in open war. It is Doc’s ability to tackle very serious issues with genuine humor that sets him apart from everyone else. CLICK HERE TO LISTEN to the entire broadcast from the Glenn Beck Show.
So don’t worry about not being able to hear Doc on the radio. The truth is that Doc will be available more often and to a much wider audience. So if you’d like to hear Doc and your local radio affiliate isn’t yet carrying him, send them an email asking them to become an affiliate. They’ll appreciate the tip since it will instantly help their ratings, and you will have helped your community by bringing a real treasure in Doc Thompson to their radio airwaves. Doc’s personal story reminds me a lot of the Howard Stern narrative shown in the movie Private Parts. Doc has a long history of taking chances and jumping from job to job until he found just the right producer and home to build his unique brand. But unlike Stern who became a household name by having women strip off their clothes on the air to shock audiences into listening, Doc does the opposite, he strips away the truth of Americas contemporary problems in ways that are equally enticing, shocking—but always in good taste.
