Live version of “The Ben Shapiro Show” Debuted on Major Market Stations, including WABC/New York, KABC/Los Angeles, WLS/Chicago
New York, NY – January 14, 2018 — Westwood One, the largest audio network in the U.S., kicked off the New Year with a bang. Its new The Ben Shapiro Show LIVE, launched on Monday, January 7, and the adjacent podcast component, can now be heard on more than 150 stations nationwide, including eight of the top 10 markets. Stations include WABC-AM/New York, KABC-AM/Los Angeles, WLS-AM/Chicago, and KSEV-AM/Houston plus other major market stations such as KTTH-AM/Seattle. The live radio show, airing from 4 – 6 pm ET, will forego nationally recorded ads in breaks and restrict advertising opportunities to a limited number of powerful live reads like the ones heard in Shapiro’s daily podcast.
The Ben Shapiro Show LIVE is a high-energy, action-packed program. Host and podcast-to-broadcast innovator Ben Shapiro, editor-in-chief of DailyWire.com, covers America’s most powerful political personalities, brutally breaking down the culture, while never giving an inch. The two-hour live radio show is preceded by Shapiro’s one-hour podcast broadcast, which airs at 3 pm ET. Stations have the option to take the one-hour podcast broadcast, the two-hour live show, or the three-hour combination.
“I couldn’t be more honored and excited to bring two more hours of live content to Westwood One affiliates across the country,” said Shapiro. “We are bringing more hard-hitting, fast-talking commentary, plus new top-of-the-line guests — and we’re covering politics and pop culture in more depth and breadth than anywhere else. Thanks so much to Westwood One for allowing me the opportunity to expand the Ben Shapiro Show footprint!”
