Michael Brown, the oft-maligned director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency in the Bush administration, has a new gig: a talk radio host in Denver.
Brown shouldered a good portion of
the blame of the previous administration's mishandling of Hurricane
Katrina, which devastated the Gulf Coast in 2005.
His name was made famous when President George W. Bush told him "You're doing a heck of a job, Brownie."
Brown told a Denver news blog that he had three good advisers during the
aftermath of his time at FEMA; his wife, his lawyer, and his pastor.
But now, Brown may have a chance to
put a different spin on his name. Radio station KOA in Denver has hired
him to host a public affairs program.
The airtime schedule has yet to be released, but a producer said Brown will offer in insider's view of the political process.
