State Your Case is hosted by longtime area political commentator George Korda. He brings compelling discussions and guests to the NewsTalk 98.7’s Sunday afternoon listeners.
George is the only area political analyst and commentator who appears in print, on television, and on the radio. Korda’s work in political commentary includes serving as political analyst for WATE-TV; he writing a column for the Knoxville News Sentinel’s website; and writing a regular column on local politics for Cityview Magazine. He has hosted public affairs radio shows locally since 1997.
“It’s an honor to be host of a show on Newstalk 98.7 and to work with the station’s great staff. We’ll hit topics hard and ask people to call in and state their opinions. I don’t care whether they agree or disagree with me: the point is to air out thoughts, ideas and criticism that people want to share.”
Korda began his communications career as a military journalist, serving at Fort Benning, Georgia, and with the Office of the Chief of Public Affairs, United States Army, Europe. He wrote for Stars & Stripes, various military and civilian publications, and worked as a radio reporter for Armed Forces Network, Europe. In his post-military career he was a newspaper reporter in Florida; a spokesman for Tennessee state government; campaign press secretary and communications director; the City of Knoxville’s Public Affairs Director; and a public relations practitioner.
He and his wife, Marcia, live in Knoxville and jointly own their own public relations company, Korda Communications, Inc.
