Al Malmberg and “The World of Aviation” are back on the air and available anytime via a weekly podcast on www.thunderbirdaviation.com.
Al Malmberg, a Twin Cities radio personality for KSTP Radio, and former host of “The World of Aviation” on WCCO 830 AM, interviews guests each month, while adding his personal adventures flying with Thunderbird Aviation at Flying Cloud and Crystal airports.
“The World of Aviation,” a Minnesota institution, originally took to the air on WCCO TV in 1952. Sherm Booen, a 1995 Minnesota Aviation Hall of Fame inductee and 2002 Minnesota Broadcasters Hall of Fame inductee, created, hosted and produced the television program. The show ran for 28 years, until Booen’s retirement in 1982. Thunderbird Aviation, together with Al Malmberg, resurrected the program in 2004 to help promote general aviation in the Twin Cities.
“We are excited to once again be able to reconnect Al’s listeners to The World of Aviation. Thunderbird Aviation is committed to general aviation and the people that are part of this great industry, and I believe that having this program on the air will bring more people into aviation and accurately tell the unique stories of the people that make our aviation community great,” commented Nancy Grazzini-Olson, president of Thunderbird Aviation.
