The Tulis Report, a staple among radio news hounds for a decade, is shifting to 96.9 FM under the NoogaRadio brand.

The Chattanooga show covers “local economy and free markets — in Chattanooga and beyond,” says Tulis. 

“I will keep fighting to keep public officials accountable to the constitution and to black-letter law, and to keep Christians more in tune with the liberties ordained in the scriptures,” he said.

Tulis blogs at TNtrafficticket.us, and calls himself “the smartest guy with a bow tie in Chattanooga, the blogger with the biggest pen.”

Devoting much time to studying and writing about law, Tulis is doing his own legal work in a 375-day-old lawsuit against Gov. Bill Lee and health department administrator Becky Barnes, whom he says are in violation of the key law regulating state response to epidemics, thus making Lee’s state of emergency without legal basis. He is defending his petition for a writ of mandamus in the court of appeals in Knoxville.

The lawsuit is “fodder for the show,” Tulis said, “with the listener knowing my moves in advance and getting a deeper understanding about law — my continual point being, ‘We are under occupation, because cops, judges and governors ignore black-letter law and hold you in contempt.’ It’s time for the people to rouse themselves, and throw off oppressors, whether in the state or in the ministry-industrial complex.”

Tulis, father of four home educated children, has been active in pro-life and homeschooling circles. He worked 24 years as a copy editor at the Chattanooga Times Free Press, and handled the business section of the newspaper when the Times and the Free Press merged and were bought by Wehco Media in Little Rock, Ark.

The show got its start at 1420 AM Copperhead Radio in Soddy-Daisy. It was aired from a studio in Hixson, and gained listeners with a switch to 92.7 FM, the studio shifting to East Ridge.

On 96.9 FM, Tulis will expand his show to three hours, starting at 3 p.m. Tulis also does a religious Sunday show 6-10 a.m., Gristmill Broadcast, also making the move to 96.9, returning Oct. 24.
