My 30-year radio career included nine years at Federal News Radio (2006-2015) and four years at C-SPAN Radio (1999-2001, 2002-2004). I guest-hosted three nationally-syndicated radio shows, including The John Batchelor Show, The Jim Bohannon Show, and The Michael Smerconish Show. I continue to appear regularly on The John Batchelor Show, and others, to provide information about the workings of the federal government business space.
