hugh hewitt 6am - 9am

So it’s no easy task to wake up an entire nation, but Hugh Hewitt is a broadcast pro who does it with ease. He is America’s true East Coast-West Coast man, doing the show most of the time from inside the Beltway of Washington DC, but other times from his studio in Southern California, where Hugh is a professor of law at Chapman University’s Fowler School of Law, teaching Constitutional Law.

When he’s inside the Beltway, Hugh will often appear on the panel many Sundays on the NBC’s Meet The Press. You’ll also see him popping up on MSNBC giving much needed conservative opinions. Hugh received national exposure when he was selected by CNN as one of the panelists for four of the 2016 debate stage for President of the United States. Hugh is the author of 14 books, including his most recent “The Fourth Way” outlining what America must do now that we have elected Donald Trump to the presidency. Now heard on around 400 affiliates, Hugh is one of the fastest growing shows on the Salem Radio Network. He is also a contributing columnist for The Washington Post and all his writing appears at Townhall.com


Hugh began his radio career on KFI in Los Angeles in 1990, and spent a decade as co-host of the nightly news and public affairs show on PBS’ Los Angeles affiliate KCET before launching his nationally syndicated show on 8 original stations on July 10, 2000. He moved to mornings in April 2016 and never missed a beat. Hugh and his wife, “The Fetching Mrs. Hewitt” as Hugh calls her on the air, live in northern VA. He is a graduate of Harvard College and the University of Michigan Law School, and spent six years in the Reagan Administration, including stints in the White House Counsel’s office and as Special Assistant to two Attorneys General. Hugh has also served on The California Arts Council, the South Coast Air Quality District and The Orange County Children and Families Commission.

sEBASTIAN GORKA 3pm - 6pm

America's 'truth detector'

Dr. Sebastian Gorka began his show, AMERICA FIRST, on New Years Day, 2019. His ascent to this 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 counter-terrorism 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.

In 2020, President Donald Trump named Gorka to the National Security Education Board. This board provides strategic consultation and was established by congressional act in 1991.


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 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 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.

LARRY ELDER 6pm - 9pm

America's 'truth detector'

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.”

Also... Eric Metaxas, Ron Hutchcraft, Pastor Shane Idleman, Lou Dobbs, and more!
