Anchorage Assembly member, Amy Demboski, will be hosting a new afternoon radio show from 4 PM to 6 PM, Monday through Friday, on KVNT 1020 AM and 92.5 FM in Anchorage and Mat-Su.
Demboski joins daily morning talk show host Tom Anderson, a former state legislator, who hosts the 6 AM to 9 AM show on KVNT, as well as national hosts Mike Gallagher, Michael Medved, Lars Larson and Jim Bohannon. KVNT is owned by CBI Media Group.
"The Valley and Anchorage are starving for true conservatives on talk radio in the afternoon," said Demboski. "I can peel the curtain back and get down to business in coverage when policymakers don't walk the walk. It's all about accountability and transparency,” she added.
“We’re pleased to have Amy join our KVNT family,” said Tom Steigleman, General Manager of CBI Media Group. “The fact that we’ll now have a former state lawmaker and sitting local lawmaker overviewing daily news at both rush hours, and highlighting Mat-Su and Anchorage politics, is encouraging.”
Demboski graduated from Chugiak High School in 1994, earning a bachelor’s degree in justice and history from UAA, and a master’s in business administration with an emphasis in finance from Columbia Southern University. Her husband Ben is a captain in the Anchorage Fire Department and they have two children: Kennedy and Riley. Demboski has worked in the healthcare industry, with a focus on business development and management. She served as the president of the Chugiak Community Council, chair of the Municipal Budget Advisory Commission, and member of the Chugiak-Eagle River Parks & Recreation Board of Supervisors.
“What an amazing talent,” said KVNT morning host, Tom Anderson. “Amy’s show will be popular and its perfect timing as longtime radio show icon Glen Biegel retires and the rush hour in the afternoon needs a sound, rational voice to keep listeners engaged from Anchorage to the Valley.”
“Amy has the intellect and policymaking experience to shed light on the problems and solutions weaving through local, state and national politics,” noted Steigleman. “The Valley is the second largest community in the state, so Amy definitely complements our local programming.”
Demboski’s show will broadcast live and online via 1020KVNT.com and social media portals.
The show launches in April 20th.
