Award-winning journalist Geraldo Rivera is slated to broadcast his national radio show from Plantation Wednesday during a job fair targeting veterans, former law enforcement members and South Florida residents.

“It’s one thing to talk to the talk and another to walk the walk,” Rivera said Tuesday after broadcasting from the WFTL, AM 850 studios in Pompano Beach. “We found that if you provide a venue where prospective employers can come with jobs available and invite the public, veterans specifically … there’s a real opportunity for you to get a job or a better job.”

The “Putting America Back to Work” job fair is being hosted by radio station WFTL at the Sheraton Suites Plantation hotel at 311 N. University Dr. in Plantation.

The job fair is expected to bring in more than 30 companies offering about 5,000 jobs. It’ll be from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Rivera will broadcast “Geraldo Live” from 9 a.m. to noon, talking about jobs and 9/11. He said he plans to put as many job seekers as possible on the show to talk about their job aspirations or about Sept. 11.
