John Kennedy O’Connor has some news for you

(AUDIO) John Kennedy O’Connor is Holding Up

Update your brains, TV news fans. A new butt has arrived to occupy the anchor’s chair in the Redwood News studio on Humboldt Hill. 

On today’s edition of Humboldt Holding Up, we speak with John Kennedy O’Connor, a London-born veteran broadcaster who now lends his gravitas to Humboldt’s longest-running television news operation. Perhaps you caught his pre-election interview with now-outgoing Auditor-Controller Karen Paz Dominguez. If not, sample his steady-handed interview approach below.

Pretty good, no? Click the audio player above or click on over to Apple Podcasts to hear O’Connor speak with the Outpost’s Andrew Goff and Stephanie McGeary about his decision to take the opportunity to become a Humboldt newsman. But also be prepared for LoCO to pursue its curiosity about the Eurovision Song Contest, the high-stakes European songwriting competition that O’Connor has served as a presenter for and has also written books about. You have been warned!
