Michael GrahamLast we heard, he was self-syndicating in New England via a handful of stations. But now, Cumulus says former Boston and DC Conservative talker Graham will host a new radio talk show on WYAY, Atlanta “All News 106.7”. The show will air weekdays from 9:00 a.m. until noon. Graham moves to Atlanta from Boston, where he hosted shows on the New England Talk Network and on the BostonHeraldRadio.com, and was a columnist for the Boston Herald.


Graham has spent most of his life in front of a microphone, starting his career in college as a stand-up comic and spending six years on the national circuit performing with stars including Jerry Seinfeld, Jeff Foxworthy and Robin Williams. He then worked as a GOP political consultant on campaigns from Chicago to the Carolinas. As a result, he was a frequent guest on FOX News, CNN, and MSNBC, and made several guest appearances on Bill Maher’s “Politically Incorrect” and “Real Time” television shows. Graham began his talk radio career at WBT-AM in Charlotte, followed by stints in Richmond and Washington, D.C. He then moved to Boston, where he became a fixture in talk radio and started his own network, New England Talk Radio Network, and formed a partnership with BostonHeraldRadio.com.

Graham is a popular public speaker and the author of four books, including the first major publisher book on the Tea Party movement in America, “That’s No Angry Mob, That’s My Mom!” (Regnery, 2010).

Randall Bloomquist, Corporate Programmer-News/Talk for Cumulus Media said: “Michael Graham is a next-generation talk radio talent—smart, opinionated and very funny. His show will be an entertaining and inclusive conversation about the things that are truly important and interesting to his Atlanta area audience.”

Graham said: “I’m not a radio host—I’m a radio FAN. I love being part of exciting, entertaining conversations and Cumulus is going to bring those conversations to fans like me. The fact that I get to be on the other side of the mic just lets me enjoy it even more.”

Graham added: “Growing up in rural South Carolina, I was taught ‘If you can’t say something nice… drink!’ Having never learned to hold my tongue or my liquor, radio in Atlanta is likely to get interesting very quickly.”
