The John Batchelor Show (Tuesday – Saturday from 12m-1AM) is an essential tool for understanding the new order in the 21st Century. Each week John brings listeners breaking news with a carefully cultivated team of sources and correspondents around the world, providing information long before it hits the mainstream media. Described by some as a cross between Matt Drudge and Coast to Coast, The John Batchelor Show is for the thoughtful listener who wants to understand the major players in the great ideological battle of the new millennium.
On September 12, 2001, the day after the fall of the Twin Towers, 77 WABC recruited John Batchelor to go on the air until Osama bin Laden was either killed or captured. John has been on ever since, offering insightful commentary on such issues as the war on terrorism, the presidency, the national and global economies, and defending our civilization. On March 12, 2003, one week before the attack on Iraq, ABC Radio Networks invited John to bring his expertise to syndication. Since then John has captivated listeners from coast to coast, focusing his concerns on global power shifts and the faltering global economy.
The John Batchelor Show features a multitude of distinctive elements. John’s themes cover every detail – from military battles, presidential campaigns, planetary exploration, and Hollywood politicos to his own international travel. John has broadcast from many corners of the world and in his program he calls out to all points, including New York, Jerusalem, Des Moines, Kazakhstan, Orlando, Manchester, Morocco, Boston, Taipei, Washington, and Baghdad.
John is a veteran novelist and author of seven political romances, as well as a short history of the Republican Party. Born in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania in 1948, John attended Lower Merion High School and Princeton University. In 1976 he was graduated from Union Theological Seminary. John is married and has two children.
