Three radio stations in Florida to play Trump speeches every hour until 2020 elections
The outlets' plan comes in the backdrop of the president promising $448 million in relief aid last week for Florida communities whose lives were destroyed after Category 5 Hurricane Michael last year
Three radio stations in Florida have promised to air President Trump's speeches every hour of the day until the 2020 race to the White House.
The outlets revealed their plan after the president promised $448 million in relief aid last week for Florida communities whose lives were destroyed after the terrifying Category 5 Hurricane Michael last year, according to a Fox News report.
Trump told a fiery crowd in Panama City Beach: "No games, no gimmicks, no delays. We’re just doing it."
According to Samuel Rogatinsky, a Fort Lauderdale-based attorney, three radio stations in Bay County, namely WRBA-FM, WKNK-FM, and WASJ-FM, said they will broadcast two-minute excerpts of the president's speeches every hour of the day until the end of the 2020 election.
Speaking to the Orlando Sentinel, Rogatinsky said, "We ran it by a bunch of listeners and people in the area, and nobody’s upset about it. It’s Republican territory. Nobody’s offended by it. It’s not an issue."
"Really, we just want to have inspirational type things because the community is so down," he added. "Nobody else is really promising or doing anything. They want to hear what he has to say."
According to the paper, Gulf Coast Media Inc., owned by Rogatinsky, purchased the three stations from Powell Broadcasting Company. The lawyer said Trump's visit to Bay County had heartened communities who for long felt like they were neglected. Now, the residents are completely on board with the radio stations' plan.
While Gulf Coast Media acknowledged its unconventional approach in a subsequent news release, it insisted that it took "this approach to show the community’s sincere appreciation for President Donald Trump’s work in Panama City and Bay County."
Speaking to MSN, Rogatinsky said that Gulf Media will offer to air other candidates’ speeches as well in order to comply with the Federal Communications Commission’s equal time guidelines.
