MSNBC SIGNS CONSERVATIVE TALK RADIO PHENOMENON MICHAEL SAVAGE TO HOST "THE SAVAGE NATION," A SATURDAY AFTERNOON ISSUE-ORIENTED OPINION SHOW
SECAUCUS, NJ - Conservative talk radio phenomenon and best-selling author Michael Savage has been signed by MSNBC to host "The Savage Nation," a one-hour weekly issue-oriented opinion show set to air live on Saturday afternoons at 5:00 pm (ET). The announcement was made today by Erik Sorenson, president, MSNBC.
The format of "The Savage Nation" will be based on Savage's number one rated afternoon drive time radio program, which is heard on over 300 stations, including New York's WABC and San Francisco's KSFO. The new show, which premieres on MSNBC in March, will originate from San Francisco. It will feature penetrating and provocative commentary and opinion from Savage, mirroring his #1 New York Times best selling book "The Savage Nation."
"Michael Savage is brash, passionate and smart," said Sorenson. "His conservative point of view adds to the kaleidoscope of perspectives already heard on MSNBC - a place where a range of voices have their say, without any one dominating the channel itself. 'The Savage Nation' will anchor our Saturday afternoon program schedule and become destination television for those looking for compelling opinion and analysis with an edge."
"I look forward to continuing on television what has made me so successful on radio," said Savage. "People love my show because of my hard hitting style combined with intelligence and wit. Those who listen to me say they hear a bit of Plato, Henry Miller, Jack Kerouac, Moses, Jesus, and Frankenstein. I'm looking forward to reaching new viewers while giving my existing audience more of what they have come to love and expect, including a look into my very private studio."
An independent-minded individualist, Michael Savage fits no stereotype. He attacks big government and liberal media bias, but champions the environment and animal rights. Trained as a scientist, he holds Master's degrees in medical botany and medical anthropology and earned his Ph.D. from the University of California at Berkeley in Epidemiology and Nutrition Science. Along with the best selling book "The Savage Nation" and CD "Best of The Savage Nation," he is also the author of the book "Herbs That Heal" and 17 other books. His radio show airs nationally on the Talk Radio Network and attracts one of the most loyal listening audiences in radio.
