Salem Communications’ News Talker in LA, AM 870 The Answer (KRLA), has added Elisha Krauss to the morning team replacing Heidi Harris. Krauss will join Brian Whitman and Ben Shapiro in the new morning show they are calling “The Morning Answer.”
Krauss is best known for her years as senior producer on the Sean Hannity show, the second most listened to talk show in history. Whitman and Shapiro joined the morning team at KRLA last summer and will continue to perform wake-up duties with this new team. Whitman is an LA radio veteran, while Shapiro is Editor-At-Large at Breitbart.com and New York Times best selling author.
“After being behind the scenes in radio for years I know this is a huge opportunity to share my conservative beliefs with the KRLA audience everyday.” said Krauss, who first came to the attention of the talk radio world as an 18 year old freshman intern at WABC in New York while attending the King’s College in Manhattan. It didn’t take her long to impress WABC Program Director Phil Boyce, who assigned her to the Sean Hannity show where she eventually rose to the ranks of senior producer.
Boyce is now VP/Director of Spoken Word Format for Salem Communications.
“Elisha impressed me from the day we first met when she applied to be an intern,” said Boyce. “She had been home schooled in Oklahoma, but here she was in Manhattan making a name for herself as a freshman and I was immediately impressed with her character, integrity and maturity.” On the Hannity show, Krauss put the program together daily, booking guests and managing the behind the scenes efforts of this highly rated radio program. In this new job, she will take those skills to the other side of the microphone and show LA morning audience what she thinks about the days breaking news.
