Fort Worth-bred Janine Turner launches radio show

Posted 9:33am on Tuesday, Mar. 19, 2013

Fort Worth-bred actress Janine Turner is best-known for playing pilot Maggie O'Connell on Northern Exposure (although some of us still remember when she played Demi Moore's sister on General Hospital), but she's also one of show-biz's conservative voices, one that you could hear in DFW from May 2011 to December 2012 on KLIF/570 AM (another familiar TV face, former KXAS/Channel 5 reporter Grant Stinchfield, now holds down Turner's former Saturday-night slot).

Not one to be slowed down, Turner has announced a new show, beginning Monday, as in March 18. The two-hour, Monday-Friday "The Janine Turner Show: All American Common Sense" kicks off at 5 p.m. Central.

"I invite you to join me in examining the issues of the day without 'the blame game'!," says Turner in a release, adding that her show will emphasize solutions instead of problems.

Turner's opening-week guests include Bill O'Reilly, CNBC's Larry Kudlow, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, Ambassador John Bolton, Senator Ted Cruz and Darren Burrows, who played the laconic Ed on Northern Exposure.

Right now, the show doesn't have a "terrestrial" DFW radio affiliate, but of course you can listen live via Turner's website, linked above. Or you can listen on Sirius XM 166 if you have satellite radio. Or you can listen to KPRC/950 AM, Turner's Houston affiliate, via iHeartRadio on your computer or on the iHeartRadio smartphone app.

Turner will take listener calls at 1-855-9JANINE (1-855-952-6463). You can follow her on Twitter, or on Facebook.
