Russ is a finalist in the search for America's Next Great Progressive Talk Star

Today Blend co-blogger “Radical” Russ Belville passed through the fire once more and it’s down to the last eight contestants in the national contest to find the next big progressive radio talk show star!

Smooth-talking, absolutely smashing Russ was on at 10:40 AM Eastern today, broadcasting from AM 620 KPOJ in Portland, Oregon. He was given five minutes to convince the judges (including Ed Schultz) that he has the mojo to win. He talked about Pastor Ted, the e-voting debacle, and he had a great rant about our rights and responsibilities as citizens to get out and vote.

You can hear the program over at On the site’s message board, he garnered great reviews (here and here).

Woohoo, Russ! The group whittles down to four contestants next week.
