Lightning Round: Month of July!

Lightning here with your stats for the month of July! In talk radio, news is ever changing and we always have something new to talk about (especially in this current presidency with Trump). We've decided to keep track of how much POTUS Trump dominates the news cycle or talk radio topics. It's more for our own general interest but we thought we'd let the listeners get a recap with what happened in the headlines last month because we know better than anyone how quickly news comes and goes and then we forget about it.
