Laura Ingraham is back on WSRQ!
Quoted in Talkers Magazine
“After 11 years at TRN, it was time to retool how I approached the business. That meant everything from whom I partnered with and how the show is delivered to the topics I cover. Pounding on the same people and themes doesn’t expand an audience. Conservatives limit themselves when they just look at the world through a political lens. Politics is an important part of what I do — my core beliefs haven’t changed — but people are disillusioned with it.” She also pointed to her personal life as a reason for massaging the direction of her program. “I’m a single mother to three young kids; I’ve been treated for breast cancer; I’m caring for my aging father. There’s a lot more that unites us than divides us. I want the show to be livelier, funnier, newsier, more unpredictable. The personal connection with listeners is more satisfying than political conversations.”
We are happy she’s back!
Always articulate and entertaining, “The Laura Ingraham Show” has been addicting legions of listeners since her launch into national syndication in 2001. Smart, funny, and ahead of the curve in politics and the culture, Laura’s busting down the door of the “boys only” radio club. Her show takes listeners on a wild ride through the colliding worlds of politics, the news media, and Hollywood.
Her legal, political, writing, and television background distinguishes Laura in the field of increasingly homogeneous radio syndication. Whether she’s on the watch for evidence of media bias, political hypocrisy or Hollywood inanity, Laura infuses her program with a level of energy and commitment to conservative principles that grabs hold and won’t let go.
In addition to hosting her own syndicated radio program, Laura is an author, frequent columnist and television commentator. Her books, The Hillary Trap, Shut Up and Sing and Power to the People all quickly became bestsellers. Her latest book, The Obama Diaries, discusses President Obama’s first year in office is her latest NY Times Best seller.
Laura worked as a speechwriter in the final two years of the Reagan Administration at the White House, the Department of Transportation and the Department of Education. She went on to graduate from the University of Virginia School of Law, where she was Notes Editor of the Law Review. She served as a law clerk on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, and then on the Supreme Court of the United States for Justice Clarence Thomas. After clerking, Laura worked as a white-collar criminal defense attorney for Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom. Laura is a graduate of Dartmouth College.
Smart political talk isn’t just for the boys anymore. Just say no to stupid radio and get hooked on Laura. It’s not just a talk show – It’s your healthy radio addiction.
