Minneapolis Talk personality Jason Lewis is going national through a syndication deal with Premiere Radio Networks, the Clear Channel programming division announced Monday, Feb. 23.
Airing weekdays from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. ET, The Jason Lewis Show fills out a full slate of conservative Talk programming for Premiere beginning with Glenn Beck at 9 a.m., followed by Rush Limbaugh at Noon, Sean Hannity at 3 p.m. (through a deal with Citadel Broadcasting) and now newcomer Lewis at 6 p.m.
A frequent guest host for The Rush Limbaugh Show, Lewis, whose local show in Minneapolis on KTLK-FM from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. (CT) runs weeknights, is the top-rated Talk program among Men 25-54, according to Arbitron's Fall survey. KTLK, owned by Clear Channel, will continue to serve as the flagship for the syndicated program.
KSTE-AM, Clear Channel's Talk station in Sacramento, along with KTLK, are the program's first affiliates.
Prior to his career in radio, Lewis was the Republican nominee for the U.S. Congress from Colorado's second district. He has made numerous TV and cable appearances.
