Tom Barberi is back on the air, sort of.
Barberi's "Voice of Reason" can be heard on the Internet at utahfm.org.
Barberi's show, which debuted March 3, airs live on Tuesdays from 9 a.m.-noon.
Utah Free Media ("UtahFM") is an all-volunteer driven, grass-roots Internet radio station. It broadcasts live daily from 9 a.m.-9 p.m.
Besides Barberi, it includes a host of original programming.
Barberi was last on the airwaves on KALL for a short-lived two-hour show early last year.
Prior to that, he did a radio show on KFMS (FM-97.9) from September 2005 to September 2006.
He first left KALL when his contract wasn't renewed in October 2004 after an almost 33-year career there.
Barberi is one of the greatest polarizers the Salt Lake radio market has ever had. Listeners either love him or hate him.
Whether you agree with Barberi or not, he has a true love for the medium.
He's also nationally known for his talk show talents. Talkers Talk magazine twice named him one of the "100 Most Important Radio Talk Show Hosts in America." He's also been inducted into the Utah Broadcasters Hall of Fame.
