American Forces Network adds Laura Ingraham


Courtside Entertainment Group announced The Laura Ingraham Show is now heard by more than one million U.S. service members and their families via American Forces Network. In the six weeks since her return to radio, House Speaker John Boehner, Gen. Stanley McCrystal, Sen. Orrin Hatch, Dr. Ron Paul, Sen. Rand Paul, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Rep. Paul Ryan, Sen. Marco Rubio and Sen. Ted Cruz among others, all made headlines this year and all have made sure to talk with Laura. The show has also attracted guests from beyond the Beltway such as TV news legend Al Roker, Law & Order creator Dick Wolf, Sport’s Illustrated writer David Epstein, fitness author Denise Austin, actor/activist Gary Sinise, Donald Trump and NFL Hall of Fame quarterback Fran Tarkenton to name a few.

Ingraham has also made headlines herself and has been widely quoted this year by major media outlets from CNN, Fox News and the Huffington Post to Politco, Daily Mail and USA Today.

“It is fantastic to be back on the air–and it feels even more special knowing that all of our friends listening on Armed Forces Network can hear us around the globe,” Ingraham said.  “The energy and enthusiasm from listeners, affiliates and advertisers since I returned to the airwaves has been overwhelming.  From Tucson to Jacksonville, from Washington, DC to Seattle, Americans are energized and enthusiastic about our daily conversation about our country’s past, present and future.  Politics is important–but so is the culture around us.  As a single parent of young children and a cancer survivor, I have a unique perspective that connects me with listeners of all political stripes.  Our conversation is a fun-filled ride that moves beyond the Beltway to the real-life ups and downs we all face.”

“The impact of Laura’s radio show remains second to none,” said Norm Pattiz, founder of Westwood One and Courtside Entertainment Group. “Unlike anybody else on radio, Laura’s unique female perspective in the predominately male business of talk radio has catapulted her to success since The Laura Ingraham Show was launched nationally by Westwood One a dozen years ago. When important newsmakers and celebrities want to access a massive, loyal and influential audience, Laura Ingraham remains the woman to talk to.”
