Pundit Review was a blog before there was even a word ‘blog’. The site started in December 1999 by Kevin Whalen as an outlet for a political junkie and over time has morphed into a hybrid blog-radio show. For more than seven years, Pundit Review has broadcast a weekly show on Boston’s 50,000-watt talk station WRKO.

Pundit Review Radio is where the old media meets the new. Each week Kevin, and until August 2008, Gregg Jackson, gave voice to the work of the most influential leaders in the new media/citizen journalist revolution. This unique show continues bring the best of the blogs to your radio every Sunday evening from 6-8pm EST on AM680 WRKO, Boston’s Talk Station.

The Pundit Review Radio podcast was a Weblog Awards finalist in 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008.
