Tantaros-Mattera: It has a certain snappy ring to it. And soon, there will be a nationwide signal behind this political pairing. Talk Radio Network Entertainment will launch “The Andrea Tantaros Show With Jason Mattera” on Jan. 2, likely to propel the “he said, she said” talk radio format to new heights.
Ms. Tantaros is the political commentator, syndicated columnist and brilliant/beautiful co-host of Fox News Channel’s “The Five.” Mr. Mattera is the best-selling author, former Human Events editor and brilliant/handsome host of his own weekend show on New York’s WABC.
The dynamic, possibly dueling duo will join forces daily from 9 a.m. to noon to chat up “smart, edgy, and funny but responsible commentary on politics, pop culture, Wall Street and entertainment,” the producers note.
“I promise you this: It’s going to be fun,” observes Ms. Tantaros.
