Ex-FEMA chief plans live broadcasts in New Orleans

Michael Brown will take his radio show on the road to mark the fifth anniversary of Katrina

Former FEMA Director Michael Brown is taking his Denver radio show on the road for live broadcasts from New Orleans in advance of Sunday’s fifth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.

Brown will broadcast his political talk show on Wednesday and Thursday evening. It airs on KOA-AM.

Brown headed the Federal Emergency Management Agency when Katrina hit. He became a target of the outrage over the government’s response when former President George W. Bush told him with the media present: “Brownie, you’re doing a heckuva job.”

Brown says in a new HBO documentary on Katrina by director Spike Lee that he winced when Bush said that because he had just finished telling the president why things weren’t working.
