Ex-House Majority Leader Tom DeLay to join The Washington Times
Will pen column, star on radio show
Question of the Day
Tom DeLay, once one of the most powerful officials in Washington, will join The Washington Times as a weekly columnist and radio personality.
Starting this week, Mr. DeLay will appear on a weekly on-demand radio show with Andy Parks, who separately hosts "Live from the Washington Times" on WRC AM-1260 on weekdays. Mr. DeLay's 30-minute program will be streamed on the Kaliki-based, on-demand radio network that was recently established in partnership with The Times.
Mr. DeLay will elaborate on the themes he develops on air into a weekly column for The Times.
"I'm very excited about having a platform for a dialogue with the American people," Mr. DeLay said. "The Washington Times was always my favorite newspaper in Washington. It was the first thing I read in the morning. Being part of The Washington Times is a big honor for me."
Mr. DeLay is a former House majority leader, the second-ranking leader in the U.S. House of Representatives. As majority leader, he was responsible for developing the issues and policies that formed the Republican agenda. When Mr. DeLay left Congress in 2006, he devoted himself to helping conservatives. He is the founder of First Principles LLC, a consulting firm that works with a range of political organizations in the fields of grass roots, new media, communications and issue advocacy.
"Tom will tell it like it is with authority that few others can muster," said John Solomon, The Washington Times' editor and vice president for content and business development. "We are eager to have such a powerful voice as part of our team."
Mr. DeLay also travels around the country delivering speeches to Republican organizations and on college campuses, stressing the importance of remaining true to the principles of the U.S. Constitution and the Founding Fathers.
In 2006, Mr. DeLay co-authored the best-selling "No Retreat, No Surrender: One American's Fight," which includes his memoirs and a call to rebuild the conservative movement based upon the first principles of order, justice and freedom.
