Courtside Entertainment Group says the former Congressman and Presidential Candidate will make his national radio and podcast debut 3/18. “Ron Paul’s America” will feature one of America’s most popular public figures sharing his thoughts and opinions on the issues listeners care about in twice daily one-minute radio commentaries with radio veteran and bestselling author Charles Goyette as his sidekick.

In addition to the daily commentaries, Ron Paul’s America will also be available as a weekly podcast to satisfy the growing demand for on-demand digital content.
“There’s no questioning the fact that Ron Paul is one of today’s most impactful leaders. His thoughts and opinions have created a significant and loyal following that has made its presence known throughout the country,” said Norm Pattiz, Founder of Westwood One and Courtside Entertainment Group and Chairman of Launchpad Digital Media. “That following includes college campuses, corporate offices and everything in between. His new radio show for Courtside and his digital presence via podcasting create a platform that will be hugely successful.”
“I am very excited to have this opportunity to take the message of freedom to more people than ever, especially now when our country needs it so much,” said Paul. “Radio and podcasting are a much more powerful means of communication than speaking on the floor of Congress. I welcome this chance to work with Norm and Courtside and interact with America in a new way, delivering a message that is timelier than ever and a philosophy that people are clearly hungry to hear more about.”
Ron Paul is an American physician, author, and former politician who served as the U.S. Representative for Texas’s 14th congressional district from 1997 to 2013 as well as the 22nd congressional district for special term between 1976 and 1977, when he lost reelection in 1978, and for 3 later terms, from 1979 to 1985. On three occasions, he sought the presidency of the US: as the Libertarian Party candidate in 1988 and as a candidate in the Republican primaries in 2008 and 2012.
Paul is best known for his libertarian views and is a critic of American foreign, domestic, and monetary policies, including the military–industrial complex, the War on Drugs, and the Federal Reserve. Dr. Paul is the author of several books, including The Case for Gold, Liberty Defined, End The Fed, The Revolution: A Manifesto, Pillars of Prosperity, Gold, Peace, and Prosperity, A Foreign Policy of Freedom, and A Republic, If You Can Keep It.
RBR-TVBR observation: With all of the intense political squabbling right now over gun rights, Obamacare, taxes, the budget, etc…the timing is great for launching this. He has quite a following, but not so much with the media. Paul is obviously not in the pro-gun control crowd. He believes that “more guns equals less crime and that private gun ownership prevents many shootings.” However, he has also slammed the NRA and right wing for suggesting the best solution to gun violence is armed police and teachers in schools. This could well parlay into a full-scale talk show if done right.
