|The Alex Jones Show
Alex's mainstay is his nationally syndicated news-talk show
from his studio in Austin and broadcast on the Genesis Communication Network,
based in Minnesota. The Alex Jones Show airs on over 60 AM, FM, and shortwave
stations across the United States Monday through Friday from 11:00 a.m.—3:00
p.m. Central Standard Time. As well, Alex's show is the largest draw for
the talk genre on Shoutcast and the Internet. As of April 2008 a fourth
hour has been added to the show, running between 2 p.m.—3 p.m. CST. In
addition, Alex does a syndicated and nationally broadcast Sunday show on
Communications' KLBJ 590 AM in Austin, Texas.
KLBJ AM is owned by Emmis Communications
Veteran broadcaster Alex Jones brings his unique perspective to the
KLBJ team with a brand new, hard-hitting news and information program unlike
any other on the air. Jones is a seasoned investigative journalist who
has broken hundreds of national stories during his career. He is an aggressive
Constitutionalist who digs deeply into the facts to defend property rights,
our nation’s borders, and the Second Amendment while he sends out a rallying
call to the American people to resist foreign entanglements and wars for
corporate interests. Jones eschews the bogus political labels of “left
and right” and instead focuses on what really matters: what’s right and
wrong. With this powerful new program, Jones brings more of the same dynamic
interviews and insightful commentary that he presents on his nationally
syndicated radio broadcast Monday through Friday to folks in Central Texas
every Sunday afternoon from 4:00-6:00pm.
