Three of Nation's Top 20 Talk Radio Hosts Applaud The Right Frequency

Mark Levin, Alan Colmes and Mike Gallagher -- all in the Talkers Magazine "Heavy Hundred" list -- endorsed The Right Frequency, a book on the history of talk radio.

Washington, D.C. (I-Newswire) March 14, 2013 - Talkers, the definitive magazine covering the talk radio industry released its annual "Heavy Hundred" list of the most important hosts in the country, many are profiled in The Right Frequency: The Story of the Talk Radio Giants Who Shook Up the Political and Media Establishment by Fred V. Lucas (History Publishing Co.).

Several of these top flight talkers were interviewed for the book, while three of the top 20 hosts in the country endorsed The Right Frequency.

Mark Levin, nationally syndicated conservative radio host with Cumulus Media Network ranked #7 on the Talkers list and said: "Fred Lucas not only delineates the roots of talk radio as a venue for communicating conservative political thought in the 1930s and 40s, he explains how it has become, in the 21st century, the life force for the conservative movement and the voice for conservative ideals on the current political landscape. Anyone who loves talk radio will love this book."

Mike Gallagher, a nationally syndicated conservative host on the Salem Radio Network, ranked #15 on the Talkers list said: 'The Right Frequency' is an insightful, thorough, exciting chronicle of the talk radio story. This is destined to be a classic as it perfectly captures the nature of talk radio in a way no book I've ever read ever has."

Alan Colmes, a nationally syndicated liberal host on Fox News Radio, ranked # 16 on the Talkers list, said during an interview with Lucas: "I enjoyed it because I'm in the business and I think you did a really good job in writing about the business including, I notice I'm in there a little bit."

The Right Frequency by Fred V. Lucas explains how talk radio has impacted American politics. Virtually all of the top political hosts on this list are featured in the book, including Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck and Michael Savage. But the book goes back to radio's earliest days in the 1920s.

"So many of these stars on the Talker's Heavy Hundred list have played an amazing role in shaping public opinion and moving public policy," Lucas said. "Not surprisingly, Rush Limbaugh topped the Talkers list again, as he has ruled radio for more than two decades. Most of today's leading talk radio figures stand on his shoulders. But, as this book explains, Rush stands on the shoulders of titans of talk before him such as Barry Farber, Bob Grant and Joe Pyne."
