After a long, excruciating battle with COVID-19, Chris McCarthy made his first appearance in-studio at WBSM in over six months this past Saturday, taking part in two hours of The Marcus Ferro Show.

It was a triumphant return. Chris brought the same energy that he would bring to his regular weekday program. For the first time in a long time, we are all treated to the trademark wit and unparalleled insight into SouthCoast politics that we had been used to hearing every day from 10 a.m. to noon. We were all also showered with calls from local elected leaders and faithful listeners who had missed his presence on on-air and wanted to express their support.

We talked about New Bedford elections, the withdrawal from Afghanistan, and looked ahead to the 2022 state election cycle. You can listen to the full conversation here.
