WESTWOOD ONE has inked MARK LEVIN to a new long-term contract extension that will keep his syndicated "THE MARK LEVIN SHOW" with the syndicator through 2020. LEVIN launched his show on WABC-A/NEW YORK in 2003 and expanded it to three hours in 2009; the lawyer, author, and conservative pundit was known to listeners of RUSH LIMBAUGH's show as "F. LEE LEVIN" and to SEAN HANNITY listeners as "The Great One" through frequent appearances on those shows before getting his own program.
LEVIN said, "I am delighted to continue working with CUMULUS and WESTWOOD ONE and look forward to further developing the show over the next five years. I am passionate about challenging the mainstream media and educating the public on the most pressing political and legal issues of our time and maintain my commitment to doing so."
CUMULUS EVP of Content and Programming JOHN DICKEY said, "MARK has established himself as a pillar in talk radio with his sharp and witty commentary, and we look forward to expanding his program's reach."
