-Congressman Phil Roe (TN-1).
See why, listen to our podcast here.
Tired of the usual liberal/conservative treatment that strangles most media debates? Fed up with positions ignored unless they meet their pigeon-holed agenda? Then tune in to Alan Nathan, the centrist with teeth, as he advances a more biting aggressiveness to both sides of the political spectrum. Named three times by Talkers Magazine as one of the top 100 talk hosts in the country, Alan Nathan has gone toe-to-toe with national leaders, columnists and extremists from all corridors of public argument. Also known as the “militant moderate,” Alan Nathan is an Achievement in Radio award nominated host and former national television correspondent.
Every program begins with his mantra, "We want the Republicans out of our bedrooms, the Democrats out of our wallets, and both out of our First and Second Amendment rights." (He additionally challenges the Libertarians.) He's been called the "centrist with teeth," who conducts a guest-generated, panel-driven, dialogue and debate show that moves at about 125mph. Alan insists that regardless of the issue, (political, social or cultural) one can be both substantive and spirited.
As an eyewitness on 9-11, Alan was the first member of the media to report the attack on the Pentagon. Compelling and irreverent, Alan has often been a guest panelist on a myriad of television outlets including CNN and The Fox News Channel. He lectures at live events (Harvard, American University, George Mason University, etc.) and has had numerous published writings carried by such outlets as The Washington Times, The Washington Examiner, World Net Daily, Insight Magazine and Front Page Magazine. Excerpts from his columns have been quoted on the floor of the House of Representatives and were additionally cited in The New York Times and The International Herald Tribune. Now in his 14th year of national syndication, the Battle continues . . .
