RECENT SHOW PODCASTS

Leslie Marshall is no newcomer to the world of talk radio; she has been a radio talk host for more than 20 years and a political pundit on national television for the past seven. Leslie was the youngest person ever to be nationally syndicated on radio when she replaced Tom Snyder on the ABC Satellite Radio Network in 1992. She was also the first woman to host an issues-oriented program nationwide.

Originally from Boston, Leslie earned her undergraduate degree from Northeastern University and attended Emerson College’s Master’s Program.

She started her broadcasting career as a radio news reporter at WBSM in New Bedford, Massachusetts, an hour outside of Boston. Hoping to move into television, Leslie took her news skills to Miami, Florida. While there, she started working at various stations, covering news, traffic, weather and even some disc jockey work.

One night, when hosting an overnight nostalgic music program on WFTL, Leslie did a special “Remembrance” hour in which veterans called in with their experiences. It was that night that Leslie was discovered by a program director at the talk radio station across town. He phoned and told her she might have missed her calling….

After anchoring, reporting and hosting music programs, she decided to give talk radio a try—and after one show, she was hooked! Leslie started her talk radio career at WNWS in Miami, where she remained for three years.

When WNWS was sold and changed formats, Leslie chose to host middays at WGR Newsradio in Buffalo, New York. Although she only spent a year in Buffalo, the audience considered her a native and she felt a connection to the people in that community rather quickly.

And not only can you hear and see Leslie, you can read her thoughts on her weekly blog for US News & WorldReport every Wednesday and weekly for POLITICO’s The Arena.

Leslie was just voted as one of The Magazine’s 50 most influential women of 2012.

Leslie broadcasts from Los Angeles, where she lives with her husband, their two children.
