Hugh Hewitt Takes Over SRN's Morning Show
The revamped Hugh Hewitt Show will air weekdays from 6-9 am ET, from coast to coast. Hewitt is widely hailed as one of the sharpest intellects in conservative radio, and perhaps the best interviewer in the business. He's gained an even larger national following over recent months thanks to his participation as a panelist at four separate CNN/SRN Republican presidential debates. He's also emerged as a near-ubiquitous presence on television, particularly as a staple on NBC's venerable Sunday morning chat show, Meet the Press, and across CNN's lineup.
The announcement was made public last month.
Longtime SRN morning host Bill Bennett will stay on with the network as a commentator and maintain a significant on-air presence: “Keeping Bill in the Salem family, doing what he loves to do, was very important to us and we have found the perfect opportunity,” said Salem Senior VP Phil Boyce.
“Bill will be a huge contributor to the morning show going forward, and has already lined up some amazing interviews that will continue his legacy."
Talker Larry Elder fills Hewitt evening slot. Elder's show will air nationally from 6-9pm ET. Meanwhile, listener favorites Mike Gallagher, Dennis Prager and Michael Medved will remain in their traditional time slots across the network.
