For those of you wondering what has happened to Mark Williams, the ousted conservative talk radio host on KFBK (1530 AM), he is not destitute and hanging out under the Tower Bridge. Nor is he guarding the border with the Minutemen.
So what is Williams (pictured) doing?
He answers the question with an e-mail.
"For an out-of-work bum, my cup is filling up with loose change like crazy," he writes. "Got three national TV appearances this week: Today on Court TV (the Catherine Crier Show) on a 9/11 panel with Curtis Sliwa and Bill Press;
(Tuesday) on MSNBC with Tucker Carlson on "Tucker"; Wednesday on Fox News Channel (I do this segment every Wednesday at 7:20 AM Pacific).
"On the radio side, I have racked up nearly 200 hours of radio talk shows (done from a studio in our Lincoln home) since mid-June. By way of comparison if I was still at KFBK, I would have done around 170-180 hours of shows in that same period of time, not taking into account a two-week vacation that I had scheduled and never got to take. Plus, all but around 20 hours have been either individual major-market radio stations or network shows (two weeks on Westwood One radio hosting the nationally broadcast Jay Severin Show). Stations in Atlanta, San Francisco, LA, Washington DC and San Diego have all used me.
"That stray 20 hours was in Kansas City, which offered a dream local talk job but I had to turn it down...Holly (his wife) and I couldn't get past the geography issue."
