Tyler Media Group announced Thursday that former Republican Party chairman, political consultant and lobbyist Chad Alexander is slated to debut his own political talk show on KOKC 1520AM on November 9th.
“We are very excited that Chad is joining the Tyler Media family,” said Kevin Christopher, Tyler Media Operations Director. “Chad has a wealth of experience in Oklahoma and national politics, as well as tremendous insight in to the creation of public policy and how those laws affect Oklahoma families and business. He will be a unique voice in the local talk radio market, and I’m looking forward to hearing what he has to say.”
Alexander said he is honored to have the opportunity to share his views and insights.
“For the last few decades, I have shared my opinions and insights almost exclusively with a long list of personal clients, but now I will be free to discuss these views publicly,” said Alexander. “There’s something liberating in that. I won’t have to hold back.”
Alexander has represented a long list of corporate and political clients over the past 20 years, including Newt Gingrich and the University of Oklahoma. He served as campaign manager to J.C. Watts, Jr. In his early 20′s and was elected to chair the Oklahoma Republican Party at the record-breaking age of 27. Additionally, he served as a state political director to two Republican Presidential campaigns, and as a general consultant to numerous state legislators. Currently, Alexander is on the board of the Oklahoma City Metro Alliance, which assists individuals who are recovering from substance abuse issues.
Alexander checked himself into rehab last year after police arrested him on suspicion of cocaine possession; they found cocaine in his vehicle after a traffic stop in northwest Oklahoma City.
The Chad Alexander Show debuts November 9 and will air from 4-6pm Monday through Friday on KOKC 1520AM. KOKC is also home to Mitchell In The Morning, hosted by Scott Mitchell weekdays 6a-9a.
