About The Show

The Ben Shapiro Show is a high-energy, action-packed program starring host and podcast-to-broadcast innovator Ben Shapiro. Shapiro, editor-in-chief of, covers America’s most powerful political personalities, brutally breaking down the culture, while never giving an inch.

The live radio show extension was recently announced on the heels of the success of syndicating The Ben Shapiro Show, the top conservative podcast in the nation in 60 U.S. markets

Earlier in 2018, history was made as Ben made history when The Ben Shapiro Show podcast became a dedicated radio show, broadcast 9 – 10pm weeknights on WLSAM 890. The radio show has been so successful that Ben Shapiro is adding a two-hour LIVE radio show (in addition to the one-hour podcast broadcast) and will be heard 2 – 5pm weekdays.

“I grew up on talk radio and cut my teeth there,” Shapiro says. “There’s no medium that allows the exchange of ideas and the explanation of detailed narratives better than talk radio, and I can’t wait to bring two more live hours to listeners across the country. And we’re going to bring the values of podcasts to talk radio, too, merging the best of both worlds.”

Shapiro adds: “I couldn’t be more excited to join the WLS lineup for three hours per day. My parents grew up in Chicago; I’m personally a diehard White Sox fan (sorry, Cubbies!). The eyes of the nation are constantly on Chicago, and for good reason. I can’t wait to bring conservatism to the Windy City.”
