Candidates will answer questions from staff members of The Daily Tribune News and WBHF radio AM 1450. Dana Fowle, I-Team Investigative Reporter with WAGA TV Fox 5 in Atlanta, will serve as moderator for the event.
A second WBHF Political Forum will take place Tuesday, July 6, at 6 p.m. at The Grand Theatre with candidates for Bartow County School Board. The Daily Tribune News will provide a panelist for that event as well.
"The political forums are one of the most important community events that we do," said WBHF Station Manager Matt Santini. "We are thrilled to continue our partnership with The Daily Tribune News for this event."
"When local media outlets can have a healthy and respectful competition and can work together on events like this, the community wins. Adding Fox 5 and Dana Fowle to the event will add another level of credibility and interest," he added.
"We are again partnering with WBHF to help give voters information on candidates by questions and answers on specific issues," said Joe Hiett, managing editor of The Daily Tribune News. "We will run articles after each of the two forums, centering on the candidates' responses."
In addition to the panelist's questions, WBHF is soliciting questions from the public for consideration. Questions can be submitted via the station's Facebook page or by email at news@WBHFradio.org
The public is encouraged to attend this free event at The Grand Theatre, but the event also will be broadcast live on AM 1450 WBHF and replayed at multiple times before the primary election.
