Talk About Working Blue! Progressive Liberal's Schtick Has Trump-Loving Wrestling Fans Seeing Red

TV, radio, print, and social media are all abuzz over a professional wrestler who’s using his left-leaning political beliefs to rile up fans in a predominantly red part of the country.  For a different kind of Kentucky Adventure 91.3 WUKY’s Samantha Lederman goes one on one with Dan Richards, AKA “The Progressive Liberal.”

Watch the Progressive Liberal taunting his audience from the ring.

And the crowd reacts...

Listeners might remember Lederman and her English accent from when she was a morning news anchor on WUKY from 1999 to 2001.
