Author of the best selling book “The Savage Nation"and “The Enemy Within,“Michael Savage is the number one drive time talk show host in the San Francisco market and in many other cities across America.He is currently syndicated on nearly 400 stations.
“I guess people love my show because of my hard edge combined with humor and education,” he says.“Those who listen to me say they hear a bit of Plato,Henry Miller,Jack Kerouac,Moses, Jesus,and Frankenstein. I pull many of my life experiences,including that of father, son, husband, brother, ice cream factory worker, busboy, lifeguard, writer, scientist, and my huge library of books,“says Savage.
Listeners also hear top-flight guests and literate callers with intelligence, wit and energy. A benefit that a program like The Michael Savage Show attracts.
An independent-minded individualist,Michael Savage fits no stereotype.He attacks big government and liberal media bias,but champions the environment and animal rights.Trained as a scientist,he holds Master’s degrees in medical botany and medical anthropology and earned his Ph.D.from the University of California at Berkeley in Epidemiology and Nutrition Science.
Savage created the phrase “Compassionate Conservative"in 1994.He has used this concept in his radio program and in conducting the first of four hugely successful Compassionate Conservative Conventions bearing that name in 1995.Savage has consistently drawn sold-out audiences to hear him live.For Savage,these words describe a “firewall of balance"that limits how far to the right his opinions go.
