FAIRBANKS, Alaska -- A Fairbanks radio talk show host who took his politics to the borough assembly is moving south, but not out of the state.
The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner (http://bit.ly/1A1LsPv) reports Michael Dukes, host of The Michael Dukes Show, is leaving Fairbanks for KBYR-radio in Anchorage.
The station broadcasts to Anchorage and the Matanuska-Susitna area.
Dukes hosted his conservative talk show on KFAR for 12 years. He describes himself as a firm Libertarian.
He was elected to the Fairbanks North Star Borough Assembly in 2010.
Dukes grew up in Fairbanks. He says leaving will be difficult but the move is a chance to reach a larger audience.
He says he will finish his assembly term and begin his new talk show after the November election.
