Joe Walsh Syndicated Talk Show Adds Three New Markets

In the wake of controversy over his post-DALLAS attack tweet, former Congressman JOE WALSH's nationally syndicated show has added three new affiliates. The show, which is separate from his local afternoon show on SALEM News-Talk WIND-A (AM 560 THE ANSWER)/CHICAGO, has been picked up by PATRICK BROADCASTING LP (owned by TEXAS Lt. Gov. DAN PATRICK) News-Talk KSEV-A (AM 700 THE VOICE)/HOUSTON, PILGRIM COMMUNICATIONS News-Talk WFDM-F-WXLW-A (FREEDOM 95)/INDIANAPOLIS, and CRAWFORD News-Talk WYDE-F/BIRMINGHAM. The show presently airs on UNIVERSAL BROADCASTING News-Talk WVNJ-A/OAKLAND, NJ, BATTAGLIA/PREMIER News-Talk KFNX-A/PHOENIX, CRAWFORD Religion KLDC-A-K237GG/DENVER, and CRAWFORD Adult Standards-News-Talk KAAM-A/DALLAS.
“We’re so excited to add these new radio stations to our network of affiliates,” said WALSH, who drew criticism for tweeting after the DALLAS shootings that President OBAMA and, in his words, "black lives matter punks" should "watch out" because "Real AMERICA is coming after you" (he denied that he was calling for violence and apologized for the tweet, but added that he didn't regret it). “As the election approaches and the country continues to wrestle with big issues, the time has never been better to expand this platform in order to have these important conversations.”
