Conservative Review's Editor-in-Chief has some big news today. He has reached a lifetime deal with his radio syndicator to bring listeners his eponymous radio show for years to come. Here's the press release:
The Mark Levin Show -- which not only covers the most critical events of the day, but delves into history, economics, philosophy, and the constitution -- continues to be an enormous ratings and revenue winner for Westwood One and for the more than 300 stations that broadcast the show, including
WABC-AM/New York; KRLA-AM/Los Angeles; WLS-AM/Chicago; KSFO-AM/San Francisco; WBAP-AM/Dallas; KTRH-AM/Houston; WMAL-AM/Washington, DC; WJR-AM/Detroit; and WNTP-AM/Philadelphia.
Levin said, “I could not be more pleased to extend my radio partnership with Cumulus/Westwood One.
For the next nine years -- an unprecedented long-term relationship in the broadcasting industry -- I am committed to continuing to bring the best possible program, both substantive and entertaining, to my millions of beloved and loyal listeners each and every day.”
“We couldn't be more pleased to announce this lifetime agreement with Mark,” added Bart Tessler, Westwood One EVP, News & Talk. “To know that we'll be working together for so many years is a Mark Levin Show primary victory and a big win for affiliates, advertisers, and listeners. Mark's tenure will now exceed that of a two-term president and that means continued excellence on the air on a nightly basis."
Prior to launching his radio career, Levin worked as an attorney in the private sector and as a top adviser and administrator to several members of President Ronald Reagan's cabinet. In addition to his hosting duties, Levin is the president of the prestigious Landmark Legal Foundation, a non-profit legal advocacy group based in Leesburg, VA. Levin has also authored a number of New York Times best-selling books including "Men in Black: How the Supreme Court is Destroying America”; "Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto"; “Ameritopia: The Unmaking of America”; “The Liberty Amendments: Restoring the American Republic”; and “Plunder and Deceit: Big Government’s Exploitation of Young People and the Future.” He has received several honors and awards including from the American Conservative Union, Hillsdale College, The Fund for American Studies, The Media Research Center, and Citizens United/Breitbart. Levin received his B. A. degree, with numerous honors, from Temple University, and and his J.D. degree from Temple University School of Law.
This is great news for conservatives, and well bad news for the establishment of both parties.
