President Barack Obama was heard live on Citadel Media’s The Michael Baisden Show yesterday as he spoke on the importance of voting in the midterm elections as well as improvements for the country’s education system and the state of the economy. The president was a frequent guest of Baiden’s nationally syndicated radio program during his 2008 campaign and has continued to occasionally visit with the show’s listeners on a range of topics.
“I appreciate the president making time to share his vision for our nation’s direction and progress on our show,” said Baisden. “Our audience is keenly interested in the upcoming midterm elections and what impact they will have on a host of issues including job growth and most importantly, job creation. We always welcome the president’s thoughtful perspective and look forward to his visits.”
Baisden is nearing the end of his One Million Mentors tour, which has already held local mentoring forums designed to encourage adults to sign up as mentors in 73 markets since its launch in February. His final two appearances are scheduled for Oct. 20 in Seattle and Oct. 21 in Las Vegas.
