Dick Antoine hosts KZNG’s live morning show, “Talk of the Town,” which primarily targets listeners 40 and older. He interviews community leaders, such as the mayor, city manager, governor and state senators, as well as other local newsmakers. Antoine says he is interested in receiving story ideas and news releases about politics, health care, the economy, and other issues relevant to his audience. “I’m not interested in books per se or off-the-wall kind of stuff,” he adds.
Contact him via email. He often reads emails on his mobile phone and notes, “One paragraph would be fine.” Follow-up calls are discouraged; he will respond if interested. Antoine prefers to set his schedule about two weeks in advance. “Normally I can get someone on for 15 to 20 minutes within a week to two weeks’ time,” he says.
“Talk of the Town” airs weekdays from 7 to 9 a.m. on KZNG-AM out of Hot Springs, Ark.
