Jason Lewis goes national but will be heard locally

100.3 KTLK-FM host Jason Lewis, a.k.a. "Minnesota's Mr. Right" is movin' on up: his afternoon drive time show will be nationally syndicated beginning on Monday.

Reportedly, Lewis's show will continue to be heard in the Twin Cities in KTLK-FM, but from 5-8 pm instead of its current 4-7 pm, to enable a coast-to-coast live broadcast. This will give Lewis a daily national audience beyond his recent guest-host stints for Rush Limbaugh.

Lewis has long provided Twin Cities conservatives with a kindred spirit, liberals with a nemesis, and elected officials like Governor Tim Pawlenty, former Rep. Jim Ramstad (MN-3), and state Rep. Tom Rukavina (DFL-Virginia) — affectionately referred to by Lewis as "Tommy the Commie" — with a severe headache. We hope that his new gig will still allow enough time for him to appear at his signature, annual Tax Cut Coalition rally on April 15 at the Minnesota State Capitol.
