Stephen King Launches ‘Provocative’ Radio Program

Horror writer Stephen King will launch a “deliberately skewed, left-leaning morning show” on two Bangor, Maine radio stations owned by King and his wife, WZON 103.1 FM and 620 AM. Regular hosts will be former gubernatorial candidate and journalist Pat LaMarche and Don Cookson, a former reporter and communications director for Maine’s Secretary of State.

“We wanted to shake things up a little bit in the market,” King said. “We’re a little to the left, but we’re right…. We’re going to be provocative.” The station is expanding news coverage while other stations are cutting original programming.

The Pulse Morning Show will premiere on Sept 12, 2011, weekdays during the 6:00 – 10:00 A.M. slot and on
