Former Idaho GOP Sen. Larry Craig will be on KBOI-670 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Monday, filling in for conservative host Nate Shelman.
Craig will be joined by Wayne Hoffman, executive director of the Idaho Freedom Foundation, and formerly an Statesman political reporter and spokesman for former U.S. Rep. Bill Sali, R-Idaho.
Shelman, who will be vacationing, said Craig will field phone calls and focus on politics, elections and the economy.
Shelman said he doesn’t expect Craig to take questions about his 2007 conviction for misdemeanor disorderly conduct in connection with a sex sting in a men’s room at the Minneapolis airport.
“It’s an understood agreement,” Shelman said. “I don’t think he wants to relive it.”
Craig has phoned in to speak with Shelman since retiring in 2009, but Monday's three hours in the Boise studio will be his first extended appearance.
Both major 1st District Congress candidates will guest host next week: Democratic U.S. Rep. Walt Minnick is on for three hours Wednesday; Republican state Rep. Raul Labrador will appear Thursday.
