TRAVEL WITH KAL
Every weekday morning
around 9:10 am on the
Bob Muscatell Show
Kal's career started in law, where he had a general practice in New Britain from 1962 to 1978. He then started a travel agency which became one of the largest in Connecticut; Connecticut Travel Services. As a travel agent he bought advertising time on WLIS/WMRD, so it was a natural place for him to start when he wanted to get into broadcasting, after he sold the agency. His experience and the contacts he made as a travel agent have made him highly respected and recognized, and have given him the ability to now tap the top people in the travel industry. He does 260 shows a year, bringing you over 7500 travel interviews since 1998.
Kal loves to talk with people, he loves to travel, and the whole world knows it. But "Travel with Kal" isn't about him, it's about the people he interviews - Kal wants them to talk, and he wants you to learn.
Kal loves to talk travel and welcomes your questions. He would even be happy to help resolve any travel problems you may have, and will offer you his knowledge of great vacation bargains.
Where's Kals favorite vacation destination? Well, Aloha! He's been to Hawaii about sixty times, more than any other place, so that says something!
Kal London and his Show, "Travel with Kal," heard exclusively on WLIS/WMRD has been named the 2012 Tourism Ambassador Winner for the State of Connecticut from the Connecticut Conference on Tourism. Kal received his award at the Annual Conference, held May 17th in Hartford. Also honored were various State Attractions, Hotels, and Restaurants; Kal (and WLIS/WMRD) the only Broadcasters to receive the prestigious award for the year.
