Kilmeade co-hosts the morning show “Fox & Friends” on the Fox News Channel and hosts his daily radio talk show, “Kilmeade & Friends,” on the Fox News Radio network.

In an interview with Talkers Magazine Editor and Publisher Michael Harrison, Kilmeade discussed the most important lessons he has learned during his career.

“Treat people with respect regardless of title,” he said.

“Put in the effort, judge yourself on your own performance without comparing your progress with a peer on your channel or any other station. Come to play every day.”

Kilmeade said his most important broadcasting influences include David Letterman, Johnny Carson, Howard Stern, John Tesh, and Rush Limbaugh, who “moves a story or issue forward while making every hour entertaining.”

Comparing his current posts with his earlier jobs in sports broadcasting, Kilmeade said: “Unlike sports, I really sense the news and this talk network serves the core of people’s lives.

“In reality, jobs, taxes, war and elections have a direct impact on how our audience lives rather than what jersey they choose to wear on Sundays. There is just so much more on the line. The newsmakers I get oftentimes affect world history.”

What Kilmeade likes best about his radio show, he disclosed, is having his fellow Fox anchors and reporters stopping by regularly, including Bill O’Reilly, Geraldo Rivera, and Neil Cavuto.

He also likes “the access to newsmakers and players who stop by almost daily,” mentioning recent guests Michele Bachmann, Karl Rove, and John Boehner and adding: “I just don’t know if there is another show that can boast of that kind of access.”
