The next generation of great talk radio got his “start” in fourth grade when he drew radio controls on his loose-leaf binder and stuck a pencil in the center to be his microphone. In 1990, Andrew Wilkow became a real DJ at the college station 640-AM WDTU at S.U.N.Y. Delhi in upstate New York. His first show was a mix of punk metal and nineties alternative, plus whatever “politically incorrect” things Wilkow could say or do to get people to call the request line. In 1993, he moved to Gainesville, FL to attend school at the University of Florida, and was an overnight DJ at WRUF-FM. His personal politics were not exactly a welcome thing to the staff at a rock radio station during the Clinton years. Wilkow graduated in 1996 with a degree in telecommunications operations. He worked his way back to the Northeast through various radio stations in Florida and West Virginia. On September 11, 2001, Wilkow was the midday DJ at an alternative rock station in Hartford, CT. That’s when he turned from music radio to politics and opinion, and soon was filling in for the great Mark Levin on talk radio WABC in NYC. Wilkow’s popularity just kept rising, and in August 2006, “The Wilkow Majority” became part of SiriusXM Patriot, a show that is based “in one thing and one thing only—rational thought” and has inspired millions ever since. He also hosts a show on BlazeTV. In addition to schooling people on the principles of the US Constitution, Wilkow, and his wife Britany, parent three children.
