Larry Elder
Talk Show Host
Salem Radio Network
About the Show
 
America’s “truth detector” is now Larry Elder. After 20 years leading the way in Los Angeles on KABC, Larry joined Salem Media Group,  and in April 2016 SRN re-launched his nationally syndicated radio show.    Larry was originally syndicated by the ABC Radio Network from 2002 to 2007, before joining the Salem Radio Network.  Known as “the Sage from South Central” Larry is unafraid to take on liberals and the Black Lives Matter movement with common sense.

Larry graduated from Michigan University Law School and later practiced law,  before being discovered by SRN host Dennis Prager who recommended him as a host to the legendary George Green,  the General Manager at KABC.  The rest is history.

Larry says his philosophy is to entertain, inform, provoke and “to hopefully uplift.” His calling card is “we have a country to save,” and to him this means returning to the bedrock Constitutional principles of limited government and maximum personal responsibility. Larry added, “I see the Constitution as a contract that restrains the federal government, leaving everything else to the states and to the people.” As for those who need help, Larry says, “It’s the moral responsibility of the people, not the federal government, to assist. Compassion is our job, not the Feds.”

Larry is a New York Times best-selling author of four books, including his latest “A Lot Like Me: A Father and Son’s Journey to Reconciliation.” His national TV show “Moral Court” was syndicated across the country and was at one time top rated in New York, Los Angeles and Chicago.  He won a Los Angeles Emmy for “Best News Special” in 1999, and in 2015 was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

“I am thrilled and delighted to be joining the Salem Radio Network. What a great time to be on the radio, helping listeners make sense of one of the craziest election cycles we have ever seen,” added Larry. He says, “The question is not which party has my back, but which party can get government off our back–so that we might all realize our God given capabilities.”

Sebastian Gorka
Talk Show Host
Salem Radio Network
About the Show

Dr. Sebastian Gorka was named as the newest Talk Show Host on the Salem Radio Network Platform, on November 8th with his show AMERICA FIRST. His ascent to this new role could not have been more unusual, or more of a true “American Story.”

To find out how it began, you have to go back to the 1950s, to Communist controlled Hungary.

Hoping for freedom after the utter devastation of the Second War, the proud nation of Hungary was instead taken over by a Stalinist dictatorship subordinate to Moscow. One young man, who had suffered under the Nazis, decided to resist and so Paul Gorka created a secret Christian student organization to subvert the Communist stranglehold of his homeland. Paul was eventually betrayed by the British double-agent Kim Philby, arrested by the Secret Police, tortured and then given a life sentence for fighting for democracy and liberty.

After two years in solitary confinement, two years down a prison coal mine, and two years in the central political prison in Budapest, Paul was eventually liberated by the brave freedom fighters of the Hungarian Revolution of 1956. With the 17-year old daughter of a fellow political prisoner, Paul escaped across the minefields along the border of Western Hungary to a life of liberty in the UK, where Paul and Susan would be married and their son, Sebastian, was born.

With parents who had lived as children under fascism and then escaped Communist Hungary, Sebastian was raised to love freedom. And his love of talk-radio developed early. As a child he would listen late into the night to the shows of the London Broadcasting Company with a small transistor radio under his pillow. It was with this special family background, and growing up under the influence of the Conservative warrior Margaret Thatcher, that Sebastian learned how to fight totalitarian ideologies, be they Fascism, Communism, or Global Jihadism.

He would end up serving in the British Army reserve in a Military Intelligence unit, then after the fall of the Berlin Wall, in the first freely-elected Conservative administration in Hungary. The after the 9/11 attacks he became a professor on a Pentagon-funded counterterrorism program run out of Germany.

In 2008 he moved to America with his family where he continued to work for the Defense Department and become  a proud American citizen in 2012. He obtained his doctorate in Political Science from Corvinus University in Budapest and was a fellow at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government. In Washington, he served as Associate Dean for Congressional Affairs and Relations to the Special Operations Community at National Defense University and has also taught on the Masters program at Georgetown University.

Dr. Gorka has briefed the CIA, the DIA, the US Navy Seals, the Commandant of the Marine Corps, served as an expert for the DoJ during the Boston Bombing trial, and testified before Congress on the threat of Global Jihadism. He remains a guest instructor at the John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center and School, at Fort Bragg, the home of the Green Berets.

Gorka, who is the National Security Strategist for the Fox News Channel is a regular guest on the Sean Hannity show and the programs of the FOX Business Network. He writes for The Hill and has written two books for Regnery Publishing. His first “Defeating Jihad,” was a national best-seller and his latest, released in October, is called “Why We Fight…Defeating America’s Enemies with No Apologies.” Before launching his new SALEM show, “AMERICA FIRST with Sebastian Gorka,” he was an advisor to candidate Donald J. Trump and served on the staff of the White House in 2017 as Deputy Assistant to the President for Strategy.

Salem Radio Network named Gorka as a Talk Show Host in the 3pm to 6pm ET daypart, effective January 1st, 2019.

Dennis Prager
Talk Show Host
Salem Radio Network
About the Show
 
Dennis Prager is one of the most respected and influential thinkers, writers, and speakers in America.

Here are some reasons:

First, he is a nationally syndicated talk show host – heard across the country on nearly 400 affiliates, in addition to TuneIn.com, iHeartRadio.com, and the websites of his many radio stations. His show also has listeners around the world via the internet.

Second, he is the founder of Prager University (PragerU) – the most viewed conservative video site in the world, with one billion views a year, more than half by people under the age of 35.

Third, he is a Renaissance Man.

•    He is a New York Times bestselling author of nine books on subjects as varied as religion, happiness, morality, the left, Islamism, and America.
•    He is a life-long theologian. His most recent book, The Rational Bible, is the first volume of his five-volume commentary on the first five books of the Bible – rooted in his extensive knowledge of biblical Hebrew. It is currently the bestselling Bible commentary in America, and at publication was the #1 bestselling non-fiction book in the United States.
•    He periodically conducts symphony orchestras, including twice at the Walt Disney Concert Hall, where he most recently conducted the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.
•    He has travelled to more than 130 countries and has lectured on all the world’s continents.
•    An expert on communism, the Middle East, and the left, he did his graduate work at the Russian and Middle East Institutes of the Columbia University School of International Affairs. He taught Russian and Jewish history at Brooklyn College.
Dennis is known for his clarity. The motto of his show is, “I prefer clarity to agreement.”

He is deeply passionate about preserving America, the West, and the Judeo-Christian value system – yet he may well be the calmest voice in radio.

Most important, he has a personal bond with many of his millions of listeners, which is why over 500 listeners travel with him to Israel every other year, and thousands have travelled with him everywhere from Antarctica to West Africa to Vietnam and the Panama Canal on his sold-out listener cruises every year for the last quarter-century.

Finally, there are no hours on American radio like his weekly Happiness Hour, Ultimate Issues Hour, and Male-Female Hour.

In short, when Dennis Prager speaks, America listens.
