Gary Bischoff and Art Richter, co-hosts of Radio Free Kingston announce that Billiam VanRoestenberg will be a regular host of the program. Radio Free Kingston is a weekly radio show that airs on WKNY, 1490 on the AM dial every Sunday from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. The show started in July 2005 on Friday evenings and moved to Sunday afternoons shortly after.
Radio Free Kingston is a progressive talk show that counters a lot of the right wing propaganda that dominates talk radio today. Listeners are free to call the show and add to the discussion. The show discusses topics of interest locally and nationally.
The aim of the show is to entertain and educate listeners on a variety of topics. Most shows have local guests in the studio.
Billiam VanRoestenberg is a farmer living in Highland, NY. VanRoestenberg is active on the local political scene, and was a candidate for Ulster County Legislature in 2005.
"The addition of VanRoestenberg brings a fresh new voice to our radio program. During the weeks leading up to the election, I was not able to be on the show because of FCC regulations. We asked Billiam to 'pinch hit' for me, and he did such a great job that we invited him to be a regular host of the program. We plan to alternate and have two hosts in the studio each week. I am pleased to be working with Billiam who has proven to be a very polished, professional co-host."
