CAMARILLO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Salem Media Group (NASDAQ: SALM), announced today that Chicago-based talk show host Joe Walsh will be joining the network lineup in the 9pm to midnight ET time slot, replacing Steve Deace on February 20th. Walsh, a former U.S. Congressman, comes to the network from WIND-AM 560 The Answer, where he holds down the 5pm to 7pm slot. Walsh will continue with the local show, and add the national show later in the evening.
"From the time I left Congress and picked up a microphone, my fight has always been to get America back," said Walsh. "I'm excited, and grateful, to continue that fight, now with a larger microphone."
The addition of Walsh to the SRN lineup continues the network's practice of providing live, issue oriented programming from 6am ET to Midnight, to its many affiliates. Walsh has been live in PM Drive on the Salem owned talk station in Chicago since 2013.
"We have been watching Joe work locally in Chicago and have seen outstanding development. His audience there continues to grow, and we felt he would continue to do well on the national stage," said Salem Senior Vice President Phil Boyce. "Joe is a courageous and fearless warrior on the conservative side, who encourages his audience to take a strong stand for what is right," said Boyce.
