Former Missouri lawmaker Brian Nieves brings his passion for conservative advocacy to the airwaves as the host of a new radio show.
Nieves launched his new program, “The Patriot Enclave”, on Real Talk 93.3 FM in August. Nieves, who hosted another radio show ten years ago, said he accepted the opportunity to return to the air when the station’s owners vowed to give him a “long, almost non-existent leash.” to express his opinion.
“The # 1 thing about the show is that it’s, at its core, a call to action. It’s about being the resistance and standing up to the stupid bullshit that’s going on in it. moment, “Nieves told the Missouri Times.” These are the things we want to cover every day: what it feels like to be the resistance, what do we do and where do you stand as what resistance? “
Nieves was a member of Missouri House from 2002 to 2010 before being elected to the State Senate, as majority whip in both houses.
Nieves is a Navy veteran and has traveled the world as a business speaker. He is also the COO of MGB-Surgery, LLC., A Carthage-based surgery practice.
Nieves said he was offered the job based on his previous radio experience and his tenure at the Statehouse. He praised the station – which also broadcasts “Echo Chamber with Sen. Bill Eigel” – noting that most of the programming is hosted by local curators.
“The programming is mostly made up of local activists who are tired of being censored,” Nieves said. “It’s a popular radio made in a professional manner. The station has a big footprint – it may be popular, but it has the power behind it. “
The Patriot Enclave with Brian Nieves airs Monday through Friday from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. CT.
