Veteran broadcaster Ralph Benmergui debuts a new documentary series God Bless America on VisionTV beginning Monday, 19 January 2009, running for six weeks; he discusses it and the state of religion in American politics and culture with Joseph Planta.
Text of introduction by Joseph Planta:
I am Planta: On the Line. This is THECOMMENTARY.CA.
Religion and its place in American life, culture and politics has long fascinated me, as it has my guest now, that he was compelled to travel the United States and discuss those at the forefront of the culture wars. Veteran and award winning broadcaster Ralph Benmergui joins me now, and his six-part documentary series God Bless America airs Mondays beginning January 19th on VisionTV. It’s a great program and timely what with the inauguration of Barack Obama. After a noted 20-year career with the CBC, Ralph Benmergui currently hosts Benmergui In the Morning on Toronto’s JAZZ.FM91. Please welcome to the Planta: On the Line program, Ralph Benmergui; Good morning, Mr. Benmergui.
