10th Anniversary of Snohomish County’s DUI Show on KRKO Tonight

Maury Eskenazi has been hosting the “DUI Show” on KRKO 1380AM / 95.3FM for ten years. It began as a spin off from his long-airing show with Shannon O’Kelley, Health Matters.

“This year, it’s going to be structured a little bit differently,” says Maury.

What’s traditionally been a two-hour segment has been shortened this year, due to the KRKO format change from all-talk to music, but will still focus on the impacts of a DUI on families and victims, the nuts and bolts (and costs) of being charged with a DUI, and what that looks like on a legal level as well.

Getting a DUI is complicated: “I honestly had no idea, until I started hosting the show. The sheer cost associated with a DUI arrest is staggering.” Getting a DUI, if you’re lucky, begins with being pulled over, a field sobriety test and a Breathalyzer, a likely ride to jail, and what is then an expensive and lengthy process, both legal and civil, as you fight to find a newer, wiser normalcy.

If you’re not so lucky, someone, or more than one person, will die as a result of being in the wrong place, at the wrong time, while you were driving under the influence and crossed their path.

The show will only focus on the impacts of drinking and driving, not other substances.
