Westwood One Announces Lifetime Extension for The Mark Levin Show


Westwood One announced yesterday that Mark Levin will continue his eponymous talk show for many years to come, as The Mark Levin Show has now been extended through 2025.

Levin, one of the most important, popular and trusted voices in radio, is always at the top of the political conversation. Indeed, his name has been invoked by candidates throughout the presidential primary process during the debates and at campaign rallies.

The Mark Levin Show — which not only covers the most critical events of the day, but delves into history, economics, philosophy, and the constitution — continues to be an enormous ratings and revenue winner for Westwood One and for the more than 300 stations that broadcast the show, including WABC-AM/New York; KRLA-AM/Los Angeles; WLS-AM/Chicago; and WJR-AM/Detroit.

“I could not be more pleased to extend my radio partnership with Cumulus/Westwood One,” said Levin. “For the next nine years — an unprecedented long-term relationship in the broadcasting industry — I am committed to continuing to bring the best possible program, both substantive and entertaining, to my millions of beloved and loyal listeners each and every day.”

“We couldn’t be more pleased to announce this lifetime agreement with Mark,” added Bart Tessler, Westwood One EVP, News & Talk. “To know that we’ll be working together for so many years is a Mark Levin Show primary victory and a big win for affiliates, advertisers, and listeners. Mark’s tenure will now exceed that of a two-term president and that means continued excellence on the air on a nightly basis.”

Prior to launching his radio career, Levin worked as an attorney in the private sector and as a top adviser and administrator to several members of President Ronald Reagan’s cabinet. In addition to his hosting duties, Levin is the president of the prestigious Landmark Legal Foundation, a non-profit legal advocacy group based in Leesburg, VA. Levin has also authored a number of New York Times best-selling books.
