Former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling will host Breitbart News Network’s first online radio show, “Whatever It Takes,” debuting Tuesday morning.

Mr. Schilling, an outspoken conservative and Donald Trump supporter, was fired in April as an ESPN analyst after he shared an internet meme that people interpreted as anti-transgender. 

“God places things in our lives for specific reasons,” the former MVP said in a statement Monday. “After being fired by ESPN for my conservative opinions, I arrive here at Breitbart News, which I consider the last bastion of actual journalism. Yes, it’s openly conservative, but as much as liberals despise us they can’t deny the facts behind the arguments. This is the most important election of our lifetimes and under no circumstances can we allow a career criminal to be put in the Oval Office.”

Breitbart News, formerly run by Trump campaign CEO Stephen Bannon, said the new radio show will be “caller-intensive” and focus on topics ranging from politics and culture to current affairs and “perhaps some sports.”

“Curt Schilling brings all the skills and commitment to excellence needed to be the voice of Breitbart News’s first online radio show: He’s a patriot dedicated to truth, he’s highly competitive, he’s a tenacious fighter, and he’s an outstanding broadcaster,” Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow said in a statement. “While his show will focus on current affairs and politics, he speaks authoritatively on sports, history, and culture. We are creating a product that you simply can’t get anywhere else.”

Mr. Schilling recently announced that he was considering a run for Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s Massachusetts Senate seat in 2018.

His radio show debuts Tuesday at 9 a.m. ET at Breitbart.com.
