“I could not be more excited to combine the skills I have obtained from my many talented colleagues at FM NewsTalk 97.1 with the unique knowledge I have of national and local politics and public policy, gained by serving at one of the highest levels of government, to create a brand-new cutting edge weekly radio product. Many in the 97.1 audiences have asked me ‘when would this day come?’ so I am so pleased to tell them, the wait is over!” Tim is no stranger to professional broadcasting, regularly guest-hosting FM NewsTalk 97.1’s Allman in the Morning, The Marc Cox Show and The Randy Tobler Show, and as a frequent contributor to The Dave Glover Show, providing political insight and commentary.

“We are thrilled to be able to add former Speaker Tim Jones to our program line-up. He has been our #1 fill in guy for some time now so the audience already knows and loves him”, said FM NewsTalk 97.1 Program Director Jeff Allen.
