I wrote some time ago on my personal blog that I’d all but stopped listening to talk radio; though I still listen to the morning news on WSB. It’s become too reactionary for me and dishonest on certain issues in some cases. While driving home last weekend, I can’t remember when specifically, I caught part of this lady (I didn’t catch her name at the time) on the radio discussing a couple of issues that caught my attention. Her approach was interesting and I completely agreed with her.
A friend who was listening to her tonight texted me and asked me what I knew about her. So I tuned in to hear what she was saying on my ride home from Atlanta. A breath of fresh air, especially from a station that broadcasts the pseudo-libertarian, Neal Boortz. Anyway, her name is Monica Perez; here’s a little information on her:
Monica Perez has an undergraduate degree in economics from Harvard University, a law degree from Stanford Law School and a masters in business administration from Stanford University’s Graduate School of Business. She recently passed the third and final exam to become a Chartered Financial Analyst. Monica has worked as a commercial banker and an investment banker. As an anarcho-capitalist (i.e., extreme libertarian), Monica is a proponent of Austrian economics and an unyielding devotee of personal liberty.
The show is aptly named The Monica Perez Show. WSB doesn’t have any information on it on their site — I’m assuming the show is only on Saturday evenings, but hopefully she’ll be a permanent addition to the station.
