David Foster Wallace takes on political talk radio in the Atlantic this month. Much of the article focuses on KFI’s John Ziegler, who just a couple weeks ago took over Phil Hendrie’s 7PM time-slot. From the description of the article on Ziegler’s website:
John Ziegler, his show, and his station is the subject of a 23 page cover story in the April edition of the prestigious magazine, the Atlantic Monthly. The lengthy article, written by high profile writer David Foster Wallace, is HIGHLY unusual and is based on about a month in which he spent hanging around the KFI studios to get a behind the scenes look at how talk radio is done.
Reportedly, Wallace will be on the show sometime this week, which, if he takes calls, has the makings of a great Red state/Blue state cultural encounter.
