A Note From The Founders
On this website you will find information about the voices and personalities who comprise the heart of Salem Media Group—the nation’s leading media company specializing in Christian and conservative content. Salem was founded in 1974—combining the radio assets of Edward Atsinger, III and Stuart Epperson, Sr. Their mission was to provide the best outlets and platforms for the Christian message. That message and the conviction for excellence remain the driving forces for Salem today as we serve a loyal, dedicated and growing audience numbering in the tens of millions nationally.
With our unique focus, Salem provides compelling content from some of the most respected figures across the Christian and conservative media landscape. They have helped Salem demonstrate leadership in the rapidly changing new media environment. With the launch of Salem Podcast Network and Salem News Channel, we continue to develop new products to grow our audience and our impact across the nation.
Salem owns and/or operates over 100 radio stations, with over 60 in the nation’s top 25 media markets. Each month, Salem has over 84.5 million app and web sessions per month. Through our National Programming department and our Christian Teaching and Talk formatted radio stations and OnePlace.com, Salem has partnered with the nation’s leading Christian communicators to bring a message of hope.
On this website you will also learn about Regnery Publishing, the nation’s longtime leader in conservative books—now expanded to Christian books through the Salem Books imprint. Salem’s multitude of news and public affairs outlets include: seven nationally syndicated talk shows, 50-plus local and regional talk shows, SRN News, Townhall.com, HotAir.com, RedState.com and PJMedia.com.
It is our objective to continue to expand our platforms for the content we are passionate about. Ideas have consequences—and many of the ideas and values promoted through today’s popular media and through government have contributed to destructive outcomes. We are convinced that the voices and personalities in these pages are part of the solution.
