Kevin Hardwick Ends Run on WBEN To Challenge Iannello

by on May 17, 2009

Bob McCarthy reports this morning

Canisius College political science Professor Kevin R. Hardwick is ready to trade his radio booth for a seat in the County Legislature.

Hardwick, host of WBEN’s “Hardline with Hardwick” politics and government show for the past four years, said this morning he will challenge incumbent Democrat Michele M. Iannello in District 10. As a result, this morning’s show on WBEN was his last.

“I’ve had a lot of media exposure and I’ve enjoyed it immensely,” he said prior to the broadcast. “But there’s a difference between the color commentary of a baseball game and being the guy on the field who can make a difference. The time has come where I’m ready to get back in the arena.”

The veteran political commentator said he felt he could not continue hosting a political program on the air while running for office.

Since I moved here last year, I have enjoyed listening to Kevin’s show, as well being a guest. I have joined him in-studio a number of times this past year, most recently last week. I will miss the show and miss those in-studio appearances, but I wish him the best of luck in his campaign, and look froward to doing what I can to help him.

    We need Hardwick on the county leg to raise our taxes just like he did in the city of Tonawanda.

    I respect Kevin and wish him the best in the race for leglistature. I offer my home for one of his signs. I see plenty of Iannellos signs around me but none of Kevin.
