Conservative blogger Peter Ingemi, aka Da Tech Guy, debuts his news and interview show on WRCN-AM 830 in Worcester, Massachusetts, at 5 pm today, Nov. 20. Peter is determined to cover stories of importance to conservatives, especially the ones that the mainstream media bury. You can listen and participate online if you are not in range of the station’s broadcast signal — click the station’s link for information on how to do that. You also can call the show live at 508-438-0965. The show’s e-mail address is datechguyondaradio at gmail dot com. Dear Stacy McCain is one of Da Tech Guy’s first guests and has the back story.
Next Saturday Peter’s show goes to its regular time slot of 9 pm. However, the shows slated for 12/4 and 12/11 will be pre-empted by UMASS Basketball games, so those shows will be at 5 pm. The shows will be live, except for the Christmas show, which will be taped.
Peter identifies his target market as being comprised of the following:
1. Political Junkies: Since the show will be one is a block of 4-5 radio shows that will be building on each other so people interested in local and state issues already listening will be led into the new show as part of the block. Unless pre-empted by College Basketball it is scheduled as the 4th show in the sequence.
2. Tea Party/Conservative Activists in the area: I am well known in local tea party and Republican circles having covered and/or interviewed the major players on multiple occasions They have a natural interest in the show and have been following the show Conservatively Speaking where I started as a guest and rose to 3rd banana.
3. Bloggers and blog readers: as bloggers come onto the show their reader notified that they will be on will be attracted to the show to hear the people they read and of course attracted to the chance to call in and perhaps say a word to the blogger they have only known via video or text.
4. [Politicians and advocacy groups who need to be] Talking to New Hampshire: A 50,000 watt political show that covers New Hampshire during the 2011/2012 primary/ election season would seem to be the thing to follow. Especially if you are part of an advocacy group that wants to prepare the ground via ads or commentary.
Peter is not being paid by the radio station to do the show. However, he gets to keep the money he makes by selling advertising time and his rates are very reasonable.
