With Barry Richard taking a three-day weekend, WBSM was fortunate to "lock down" a great fill-in host.

Bristol County Sheriff Thomas Hodgson hosted the show in Barry's absence, taking on the callers on various issues such as President Trump, the opioid epidemic, illegal immigration and more.

The sheriff also gave some insight into his regular job and how the Bristol County Sheriff's Office functions, and how he runs the jails that are under his supervision.

Watch the video above of all three hours of Sheriff Hodgson's first shift as a talk show host on WBSM, and let us know on our Facebook page if you'd like to see and hear more of him on the station.
