Last week, OnMilwaukee reported that Sherwin Hughes left his post at WNOV where he was the host of longtime political talk show, "The Forum." Today Resistance Radio, WRRD 1510 AM, announced the station would host Hughes' new show of the same name.
The Forum, which launches Monday, Aug. 13, will air Monday through Friday mornings from 8 to 11 a.m.
During the program, Hughes will foster conversations with guests and callers and talk predominantly about politics.
"Sherwin will be an immediate asset to this radio station. He is smart and insightful, and he makes great radio," says Mike Crute, CEO of WRRD. "Resistance Radio will continue to offer the most political talk line-up in Wisconsin."
WRRD is located at the Resistance Radio studios at 1224 E. Brady St. on Milwaukee’s East Side.
"Lebron is going to the Lakers and Sherwin is going to WRRD," says Hughes.
Molly Snyder grew up on Milwaukee's East Side and today, she lives in the Walker's Point neighborhood with her partner and two sons.
As a full time senior writer, editorial manager and self-described experience junkie, Molly has written thousands of articles about Milwaukee (and a few about New Orleans, Detroit, Indianapolis, Boston and various vacation spots in Wisconsin) that range in subject from where to get the best cup of coffee to an in-depth profile on the survivors of the iconic Norman apartment building that burned down in the '90s.
She also once got a colonic just to report on it, but that's enough on that.
Always told she had a "radio voice," Molly found herself as a regular contributor on FM102, 97WMYX and 1130WISN with her childhood radio favorite, Gene Mueller.
Molly's poetry, essays and articles appeared in many publications including USA Today, The Writer, The Sun Magazine and more. She has a collection of poetry, "Topless," and is slowly writing a memoir.
In 2009, Molly won a Milwaukee Press Club Award. She served as the Narrator / writer-in-residence at the Pfister Hotel from 2013-2014. She is also a story slam-winning storyteller who has performed with The Moth, Ex Fabula and Risk!
When she's not writing, interviewing or mom-ing, Molly teaches tarot card classes, gardens, sits in bars drinking Miller products and dreams of being in a punk band again.
