On my way to work and back home, I often listen to one of the Las Vegas right-wing talk radio stations, KXNT. Yeah, I guess I'm something of a glutton for punishment, but it's a short trip and it lets me speak honestly about what "the other side" is up to.
KXNT has recently rebranded themselves, gotten new music bumpers, and a new logo, all to reinforce their new slogan, News Radio 840 KXNT. They follow that with the motto, Voices You Know. News You Trust. This strikes me as odd, because KXNT is not a news radio station, it is a talk radio station. Their prime attractions are Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Mark Levin. The news they do offer is from CBS News--which is decidedly not trusted by arch conservatives. I should not be surprised that they'd use Frank Luntz-ian branding, I suppose.
Coinciding with their new image, KXNT is hosting one of Sean Hannity's "Freedom Concerts" in May. The concert is being held at The Orleans Arena, otherwise known as the place music goes to die. Acts like The Turtles, and The Righteous
So who is playing the splendiferous "concert?" Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, the local "talent" from the station and "special musical guest" Lee Greenwood. Woo hoo! Where do I sign up? Honestly, is this the best they could do? And while the concert is for charity, and it is possible that they are doing some good, I am inherently suspicious of any charity headed by Ollie North.
