The Talk Radio Revolution Starts Here: Ben Shapiro

The Ben Shapiro Show now airs in Afternoon Drive Monday through Friday from 3pm-4pm on AM 790 KABC.

The Ben Shapiro Show is a high-energy, action-packed program as host and podcast-to-broadcast innovator Ben Shapiro, editor-in-chief of the Sherman Oaks-based website, covers America’s most powerful political personalities, brutally breaking down the culture, while never giving an inch. An L.A.-born and raised young conservative firebrand, Shapiro hosts the top conservative podcast in the nation, and brings his common sense, pro-America views to Angelenos’ drive home.

Dawn Girocco, Vice President/Market Manager, Cumulus Los Angeles, said: “Ben Shapiro brings a fresh, bold perspective and highly engaging style to KABC Afternoons, and will have L.A. commuters tuning in every weekday, while KABC listeners will love waking up to two of their favorite talk personalities, John Phillips and Jillian Barberie. Leeann Tweeden and Dr. Drew are an inspired pairing, and Larry O’Connor’s local voice and D.C. insight will offer listeners something different. KABC’s popular Peter Tilden will bring us all home at the end of the day.”

Drew Hayes, Operations Director, KABC, said: “Ben Shapiro has become the voice of his generation, delivering fact-based, fearless analysis of the issues challenging America. We are thrilled to welcome Ben to afternoon drive on KABC, in his hometown. He will fit right in with our reloaded lineup: John and Jillian now waking up SoCal, Leeann teaming with Dr. Drew, Peter Tilden for the extended commute home, and Larry O’Connor, who will energize middays.”

Shapiro said: “I couldn’t be more thrilled to speak to my fellow Los Angelenos every single day. I grew up listening to 790, and it’s an honor and a pleasure to be coming to its hallowed airwaves. I can’t wait to bring my brand of hard-hitting, pull-no-punches, information-first talk to the best station in my hometown!”
