Springfield MO Radio: Dana Loesch Appearance Moved For Security
Conservative radio talk show host Dana Loesch had planned to do her live show in front of an audience at Bass Pro Shops in Springfield on May 19.
But concerns over her safety prompted a change of venue to the local KSGF 1260 AM / 104.1 FM, where she'll now broadcast live from the station's studio — without a public audience, according to the News-Leader.
The change was announced Tuesday on the KSGF "Mornings Live with Nick Reed" show. Loesch's syndicated radio show airs daily on KSGF from noon-3 p.m.
"Because of safety and security concerns, that are certainly warranted, it is just not possible to guarantee her safety and have her out in the open that way," Reed said, referring to the live show she planned to do in front of an audience at Bass Pro Shops. "Her show will be closed off for her safety."
He said Loesch still plans to do a "meet and greet" with people after she does her show at the KSGF studio.
KSGF Program Manager Kortni Tucker previously said people can win a chance to meet Loesch by registering for free tickets at various locations in Springfield. More information about Loesch's visit and how to register for tickets is available online at KSGF.com.
