Episode 14 – Jeff Messer – Failing at Radio Freedom

Listen to this episode

Jeff Messer just lost his job. For the past 4-1/2 years, he has been the voice of progressive talk radio in Asheville and beyond. In a flash, all of that was taken away from him. There was no warning, no explanation given. He just showed up on Monday to do his show, and it never aired. That’s just showbiz, kid.

Jeff is trusted, beloved, and respected by people on both sides of the political aisle. Hundreds of people have made known their disfavor. I was happy to get him on LTF to talk about it.

    A prime example of how negativity does not work in the community of Asheville is that local Beer Blog Guy who is always trying to stir things up. I forgot his name but he’s easy to find. I’ve heard people reference that he makes their skin crawl. Maybe I’ll remember his name and you can interview him. I had to block him from my phone from texting me. You know how I am about those texts.
    Anyway your interview voice is clear and understandable. Positivity.
