GEORGETOWN — Nonprofit organizations, political groups and government agencies will have a forum on KFOK Community Radio 95.1 FM starting Friday, July 6, when KFOK broadcaster Mark Nichol begins hosting “Uniting the Divide” at noon on Fridays.
On the one-hour program, which listeners can also hear by streaming the radio station online at kfok.org from any location, representatives of organizations and agencies will inform the Georgetown Divide community and beyond about programs, services and events and discuss issues of concern to the public.
Guests on the inaugural program will include Bob Dobrich, chairman of the El Dorado County Democratic Central Committee, Jamie Beutler of the El Dorado County Democratic women and Pamela Greer of the Divide Democrats, who will discuss current events such as the recent U.S. Supreme Court decision about the federal Affordable Health Care Act, as well as the goals of the new organizations Beutler and Greer represent.
Future editions of “Uniting the Divide” will feature spokespeople for groups affiliated with other political parties, as well as leaders of nonprofit organizations.
“KFOK broadcasters have discussed local, state and national issues and have invited representatives from groups and government on their programs,” said Nichol, who is also KFOK’s program directory and publicity coordinator. “But to my knowledge, there has not been a show dedicated solely to inviting spokespeople on the air to inform and enlighten people about the organizations they represent and what these groups offer.
“I’m also looking forward to having government officials spread the word about safety and the services that, with our taxes, we pay them to provide,” he added.
