Valley Advocate: The Return of Rachel Maddow (More on her, from last june)By Marion Delgado at 12:41 AM
Valley Advocate: The Return of Rachel Maddow: "Maddow's prot�g�, Dwight, recently quit the Big Breakfast (see 'Where, Where the Hell is Bill?' June 17, 2004) after a dispute with WRSI Program Director Sean O'Mealy over salary and full-time status. Dwight, like Maddow, had brought a liberal-leaning angle to the FM station's morning show. Now Big Breakfast listeners might make the switch from FM to AM to listen to Maddow's show.
Unfiltered, which runs from 9 a.m. to noon, features 'a lot of news and politics and a good amount of culture: movies, art, music,' Maddow said. Of the three co-hosts, Maddow is the newsy one. Winstead, co-creator and former head writer of television's The Daily Show, handles the guests. And Chuck D? The outspoken former MC of rap group Public Enemy is the show's 'wild card,' according to Maddow, who finds herself adjusting to being an ensemble player. 'Comically enough, I'm the straight man of the three,' she said."
