KITCHEN CABINET

THE TALK AMERICA RADIO KITCHEN CABINET

The term "Kitchen Cabinet" refers to any group of trusted friends and associates, particularly in reference to a President's or presidential candidate's closest unofficial advisers.

Many past Presidents have created Kitchen Cabinets, but at Talk America Radio, we decided to model our Kitchen Cabinet after that of President Ronald Reagan, by surrounding ourselves with great people!

The members of the Talk America Radio Executive Team are privileged to surround ourselves with great people that we proudly refer to as "The Talk America Radio Kitchen Cabinet".
