Jake Shannon's new show "Mental Self-Defense Radio" will air every Monday thru Wednesday from 1 - 3 p.m. on K-TALK (KTKK 630AM).
According to K-TALK: Jake Shannon is the Gordon Ramsey of talk radio with a Simon Cowell attitude. Yet, he is reasonable and wants to hear from listeners that have opinions. He insists on facts to back an opinion and expects a reasonable ability to properly communicate them. He wants to help people by supplying armor from getting ripped off on all levels! "Mental Self-Defense Radio" is on during the heart of rightwing conservative talk radio, trying to teach rhetoric, civility, and self-reliance. This show will give Sean Hannity a run for his ratings in this market, which are broadcast at the same time in UT.
Jake Shannon is a hypnotist and owner of Salt Lake City Family Hypnosism and is the current Vice-Chairman of the Libertarian Party of Utah. He resides in Salt Lake City with his wife and two children.
