This week our guest is my wonderful co-host Maria Sanchez! Maria has been on Radio and TV for many years in Los Angeles, had her own show 'The Maria Sanchez Show', served as the Executive Producer of a sitcom pilot for NBC Television, and is now with me on 'SHADOW POLITICS' for the past 3 years. She recently made a trip out to Washington, DC for business and we had a chance to finally meet in person. Maria is a liberal Republican and I am a liberal Democrat and yet we've proven we can respect each other's positions even when our positions are different - which I think serves to open a dialog with others.

Maria is a mother of four, graduated in June 2017 from Pepperdine University with a Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology, with an emphasis on Marriage & Family Therapy. She was also an intern at the Cancer Support Community, Westlake Village, from May 2016 until February 2018 and facilitated weekly support groups and met individually with folks for one on one counseling. Currently, she is pursuing a Ph.D. in 'Media Psychology' at Fielding Graduate University. Let's hear more about why she took the paths she did!

Guest Biography: 

A native Californian, Maria Sanchez graduated from the University of California, Davis where she earned a Bachelor of Science degree in the double major of Public Relations and Human Resources.  Ms. Sanchez also served as the Commencement Speaker at her graduation ceremonies.  After taking some time off, she decided to continue her education at Portland State University’s Master’s Program in Theatre Arts with an emphasis on Scriptwriting.

Ms. Sanchez began her professional broadcasting career as the producer for 103.5 FM KOST’s “Mark & Kim Show” at the time the longest running morning broadcasting team in LA radio history. While producing for the perennially popular Mark & Kim, she interviewed hundreds of guests covering numerous topics as the host of an uninterrupted half hour Public Affairs program.

Having found her calling as an interviewer, Ms. Sanchez transitioned from being the producer of the highly rated “Mark and Kim Show” to the most listened to talk radio station in America – KFI AM 640, Los Angeles.  During her stint at KFI, she was a permanent weekend host and often served as the substitute host for such talk radio favorites as Bill Handel, John & Ken, Phil Hendrie and Wayne Resnick.
 
Having gained invaluable professional experience in the largest market in the country, it was only a matter of time before she developed “The Maria Sanchez Show.” A topical, sometimes controversial, occasionally eclectic, always listener friendly, audience pleasing talk show heard on TALK 650 KSTE. It was not long before “The Maria Sanchez Show” was considered Sacramento’s must hear radio from 9am to noon, Monday through Friday.

With a desire to pursue opportunities in the television industry, the resourceful Ms. Sanchez returned to the metropolitan Los Angeles area and produced a sit-com pilot for NBC TELEVISION. Currently she can be seen moderating infomercials for a variety of products. During this time also co-created and anchored the debate oriented call-in participation show “Cross Talk” for the local NPR affiliate, KCLU 88.3 FM.

A civic minded mother of four, Ms. Sanchez is also a Founder of both the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza and Oaks Christian School, in addition to serving on the Board of Directors of My Friend’s Place, a resource center for at-risk youth in Hollywood.  Maria maintains a balance in her life by exercising, gardening, reading non-fiction, writing, traveling and interacting with her community both politically and philanthropically.

Shadow Politics

Shadow Politics is a grass roots talk show giving a voice to the voiceless. For more than 200 years the people of the Nation's Capital have ironically been excluded from the national political conversation. With no voting member of either house of Congress, Washingtonians have lacked the representation they need to be equal and to have their voices heard. Shadow Politics will provide a platform for them, as well as the millions of others nationwide who feel politically disenfranchised and disconnected, to be included in a national dialog .

We need to start a new conversation in America, one that is more inclusive and diverse and one that will lead our great nation forward to meet the challenges of the 21st century. At Shadow Politics, we hope to get this conversation started by bringing Americans together to talk about issues important to them. We look forward to having you be part of the discussion so call in and join the conversation. America is calling and we're listening… Shadow Politics is about America hearing what you have to say. It's your chance to talk to an elected official who has spent more than 30 years in Washington politics. We believe that if we start a dialog and others add their voices we will create a chorus. Even if those other politicians in Washington don't hear you — Senator Brown will. He's on a mission to listen to what America has to say and use it to start a productive dialog to make our democracy stronger and more inclusive. If we are all part of the solution we can solve any problem.
