San Diego CA— For the 36th consecutive year, KOGO-AM News Radio 600, an iHeart Media San Diego station, will air “The Bethlehem Report” from 5 to 6 p.m., Thursday, Dec. 24.
According to Cliff Albert, KOGO news director, the special program will feature the story of the first Christmas as told in newscast style. Reporters will investigate reports of a star in the sky as an unusual astronomical event, rumors of a new king born in Bethlehem and visits from wise men from the East.
New this year will be Albert’s eight grandchildren, ages 14 to five months, participating in the broadcast with speaking roles. Some youngsters are on-the-scene reporters, others are reading lines from the “Wonders of Christmas” in the opening segment, while the five-month-old is crying as baby Jesus.
“The program does not directly mention Covid, but, to be honest, the pandemic has had an impact on me, as it has on many of us,” said Albert, who has worked in San Diego’s radio industry since 1979. “In putting a pause in our lives, the pandemic has made me realize, now more than ever, the importance and value of family. So, all my grandchildren will be taking part in this year’s presentation. They will be sharing why, even with the pandemic, it’s the most wonderful time of the year. It will be a new twist on a San Diego radio tradition that began in 1984. We hope our annual broadcast will be a blessing to all our listeners.”
The broadcast also will air on the radio station’s website, www.kogo.com.
