Spadea was a Guadagno critic before promoting her
NJ 101.5's Bill Spadea has assiduously promoted Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno since
establishing her as a regular on his radio show in 2016. But before taking over from Jim Gearhart in 2015, Spadea's sole media outlet was Fox's Chasing New Jersey. There he took an altogether different approach.
The Spadea-Guadagno "marriage" dates from December 2015, when the Lt. Governor invited the fledgling radio talk radio celebrity into her home for a Christmas interview -- a first for the rarely press available Guadagno. The relationship gelled and from that point on, the radio host and former candidate (Congress and State Assembly) became a kind of unofficial political advisor to Guadagno and her gubernatorial ambitions. Spadea created and promoted her weekly Diggin In With Kim broadcasts -- free exposure that would have cost upwards of a million dollars to purchase.
