Al Franken personal PR

Regardless of what you think of Al Franken, it is clear that as he prepares to launch his AM radio show today he has garnered a fair amount of support and has used a variety of media methods to get it.

From his days on Saturday Night Live, to his books, to now a radio show,
Franken has spanned the media map to get where he is today. The question is can his talk show survive in what has been a traditionally conservative environment? Certainly, Franken's opponents say it can't last and that no one will listen, but will a divided nation polarize enough during an election year to give Franken an audience?

Franken will air locally on WMNN until Starboard Communications takes ownership of the station later this year.

Stay tuned!
