Beginning Monday, April 4th, Larry Elder will take over Hugh Hewitt’s national syndication time slot on Salem Network Radio. Elder will be taking over the 6pm-9pm EST time slot, while Hewitt will move to mornings beginning that same day.
Before joining Salem Radio Network, Elder had a radio program, “The Sage from South Central” on KABC in Los Angeles for 20 years. He was syndicated for 5 years, from 2002-2007. Elder moved from KABC to AM870, a Salem station in Los Angeles.
Elder has become a staple in the conservative movement because of his “pull yourself up by your bootstraps” mentality, his family’s story of hard work leading to success and his adamant belief in small government.
“I see the Constitution as a contract that restrains the federal government, leaving everything else to the states and to the people,” Elder said in a statement.
