Iowa Talk Host Simon Conway Gets Trump in Studio


Iowa talk radio personality Simon Conway – who’s heard on flagship station WHO-AM, Des Moines as well as iHeartMedia’s WMT-AM, Cedar Rapids, and WOC-AM, Quad Cities – hosted former President Donald Trump live in the WHO studios on Wednesday (5/31). Conway tells TALKERS that it’s one thing to get a former president on the air, it’s another to have Trump in studio for a 30-minute interview. He says, “I spent hours on Memorial Day in our building with Secret Service. Then on Tuesday there was more planning with the advance team and finally yesterday we had to figure out how to keep our stations on the air while they ran dogs through our building. This is the second time I have interviewed President Trump in studio. Iowa has a unique role in the election of presidents, and I am proud that I get to play a part in that.”
