Former presidential hopeful and straight-talking libertarian hero Ron Paul makes his national radio debut in mid-March. His broadcast offering is “Ron Paul’s America,” a twice-daily syndicated commentary plus a weekly podcast, packaged by the Beverly Hills-based Courtside Entertainment Group, which also counts Laura Ingraham and Bill O’Reilly in its stable.
Dr. Paul wins praise for developing “a significant and loyal following” from Norm Pattiz, founder of Courtside and uber-radio syndicator Westwood One.
It’s all proof that the former Texas lawmaker, age 77, is not done yet.
“I am very excited to take the message of freedom to more people than ever, especially now when our country needs it so much,” Dr. Paul says. “Radio and podcasting are a much more powerful means of communication than speaking on the floor of Congress.”
