Emil Franzi is a long-time Tucsonan. He also has worked for a number of political campaigns–some successful, some not successful. His campaign work has been in California, Illinois, and Arizona. His knowledge of local, state and national politics is unparalleled. Emil’s politics is somewhere to the right of Genghis Khan about which he is not ashamed. Emil keeps his favorite “lefty” Tom in check. Emil is also the publisher of the Southern Arizona News-Examiner.com–a full-service news website that includes stories from both right and left as well as history of the Old West.
Tom Danehy is a life-long Democrat. Tom has never voted Republican even if the Republican was a better candidate than the Democrat! The one Democrat he admits to not voting for was Rodney Glassman of Tucson who ran for U. S. Senate. Tom keeps his favorite “righty” Emil on track in the political discussions. Tom also writes a weekly column for the Tucson Weekly and finds the time to coach girl’s basketball along with track and field for Greenfields Country Day School. He’s coached elsewhere but was fired because he won too many games. Really!
Jonathan Hoffman keeps both Tom and Emil in check from a Libertarian perspective. Hoffman is a former Tucson city council candidate and pursues a number of interests. His favorite past time is bicycling and he frequently comes to the station on two-wheels.
