WFJX FOX Radio 910 AM and 104.3 FM is bringing Salem Media Network’s national radio hosts Mike Gallagher and Dr. Sebastian Gorka to broadcast live and in-person from the studios of WFJX for the first time in Roanoke’s history on Monday, March 2, and Tuesday, March 3. The community is invited to meet Gallagher and Gorka at the Vinton War Memorial on the evening of March 2.
“I am happy to confirm the appearance of our two superstars Mike Gallagher and Dr. Sebastian Gorka in Roanoke for the Super Tuesday rally,” said Phil Boyce, Senior Vice President/Spoken Word Format, Salem Media Group and Salem Networks.
Gallagher will broadcast from Roanoke on both Monday and Tuesday from 9 a.m. until noon, while Gorka will be live on-air Monday only from 3 to 6 p.m.
After the Monday broadcasts, FOX Radio 910 WJFX will present a “Don’t Forget to Vote—Election Reception” at the Vinton War Memorial from 7 to 9 p.m. Both Gallagher and Gorka will be speaking at the event.
Gallagher will be available for a “Meet-n-Greet” on Monday at 1 p.m. as well with a book signing.
The receptions are open to the public; admission is free. Refreshments are being provided by local businesses.
March 3 is described as “Super Tuesday” for many states across the country holding election primaries. Virginia is considered a political battleground state for the 2020 Presidential general election.
The Democratic Party is the only party holding a Presidential Primary in Virginia in 2020. The Republican Party chose to select delegates to their national convention at a state convention. Because Virginia doesn’t require voters to state their party when registering, any registered Virginia voter can cast a ballot in the Democratic Presidential Primary.
Gallagher can be heard from 9 a.m. to noon each weekday on the local FOX station, while Gorka broadcasts weekdays from 3 to 6 p.m.
