Top 10 KEEL Guests of 2020
This year has been quite different. The focus for many of our days has been the pandemic and the crisis that came with it on so many fronts.
We also had hurricanes hitting our state and many local controversies.
In checking back on our guest list for 2020, we have to thank so many people who have been readily available to share the latest news and information with our listening audience.
We did a little calculating and here are the top 10 guests of 2020 and the number of times they appeared on our show during this crazy year.
Dr. Martha Whyte who is Regional Director of the Office of Public Health for our area. She has been on the show at least 27 times this year. Early in the spring, she was giving us updates almost every other day. She was such a wealth of information as we continued to deal with new information about COVID-19. She was also our first in-studio guest once that was allowed again.
United States Senator Bill Cassidy appeared on our show 26 times. His primary focus was the federal response to Coronavirus, but he also made some appearances to push his reelection campaign.
Caddo Parish Sheriff Steve Prator popped up on the show 24 times this year. He also talked about the pandemic, but we also talked about crime in our region and he kept us up to date on storm preps as Shreveport was hit by Hurricane Laura.
Shreveport Councilwoman LeVette Fuller appeared on the show at least 21 times. She also guest hosted for Robert a few times. She kept us up to date on city hall business.
Lt. Governor Billy Nungesser made 19 appearances. He has a standing spot on the first Wednesday of the month, but he also popped in a few more times.
Local political analyst Scott Hughes made 18 appearances on our show. Most of our conversations focused on the election of 2020. But we also had a great conversation with him about the booming real estate market.
Police Chief Ben Raymond joined us 15 times this year. He has always been very available to talk about issues that concern the public. He has been dealing with a rash of violent crime this year and he kept us update.
Attorney General Jeff Landry joined us a dozen times during 2020. He briefed us on the many legal fights our state was involved in during this year.
Dr. G.E. Ghali stopped in at least 12 times to give us the latest COVID-19 news.
Shreveport Councilman Grayson Boucher also joined us 12 times to explain the latest business from city hall.
We thank them all and look forward to having each of them back with us during 2021.
