Read Bio

John Bachman joined Newsmax Media after more than a decade working as a producer, anchor and reporter in Atlanta, Augusta, GA and West Palm Beach Florida television markets.

He’s also covered special assignments for CBS News, CNN, and Fox.

Bachman met Newsmax CEO Chris Ruddy while on assignment covering an appearance of former Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin at the company’s Florida headquarters in 2011.

After that initial conversation with Ruddy, Bachman pursued a job at Newsmax. The rest, as they say, is history.

Since joining Newsmax in 2011, Bachman has traveled the country and won an award for a documentary he wrote and produced for Newsmax to commemorate 40 American Heroes – which coincided with a special edition of Newsmax Magazine.

He’s loves to give politicians a hard time during interviews and enjoys covering politics and news from “outside the beltway” – a perspective he shares with most of America.

When he’s not reading or covering the latest political news, John enjoys spending time with his wife and daughter, fishing and surfing.

Meet Jack Burkman, a K street Lobbyist and strategist like no other. Beholden to no one, Behind the Curtain with Jack Burkman stops at nothing to get to the stories that nobody is talking about but everyone needs to know.

With 25 years experience in the bowels of Washington, Burkman maintains an impressive intelligence network made up of insiders in the highest corridors of power. Now for the first time, your listeners will be privy to this information, the kind of details that before now have only been available to the true insiders who personally benefit from it every day.

Each week, Burkman focuses on news stories that are under the surface or are not being covered at all by the mainstream media. Featuring strong investigative reporting and analysis, Burkman uses his experience to reveal the secrets that K Street tries to hide from the public.

Over the last decade, the size and scope of government has grown exponentially, starting with the Bush Administration and continuing at a daunting pace with the Obama Administration. Helping to the fuel this growth, is a lobbying industry that uses member of Congress to fund programs that the country does not need and can not afford. Driven by the revolving door between K Street and the government, this epidemic crosses party lines and has infected both parties and is threatening the financial stability of the nation.

Burkman is a powerful conservative voice, but doesn’t work for the GOP establishment and his pursuit of the truth doesn’t stop at the party line.

Behind the Curtain goes beyond politics, covering key social debates of the day, as well as legal controversies and other issues.

Join Burkman on his weekly journey to pursue the truth and expose the dark secrets of K Street.

Larry Elder
Read Bio

A "firebrand" according to "Daily Variety," best-selling author and radio talk-show host Larry Elder has a take-no-prisoners style, using such old-fashioned things as evidence and logic. Larry shines the bright light of reasoned analysis on many of the myths and hypocrisies apparent in our system of government, our society, and the media itself. He slays dragons and topples sacred cows using facts, common sense and a ready wit.

Larry, the recipient of a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, has hosted the longest-running afternoon drive time radio show in Los Angeles, beginning in March, 1994. "The Larry Elder Show," a top-rated daily program from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. (PT) on KABC 790, and is also available to his fans -- the Elderados -- via live video or audio podcasts on www.larryelder.com. Known to his listeners as the "Sage From South Central," Larry sizzles on the airwaves with his thoughtful insight on the day's most provocative issues, to the delight, consternation, and entertainment of his listeners. The "Sage" engages political and cultural leaders in meaningful debates over race, government, personal responsibility and education that have elevated the talk radio genre. A blend of fiscal conservative and social liberal-with attitude-Elder's limited government/personal responsibility views have fueled controversy and made him one of the most in-demand radio personalities cable news pundits in the country.

In his best-selling book, The 10 Things You Can't Say in America, Larry skewers the crippling myths that dominate the public agenda. Larry punctures all pretension, trashes accepted "wisdom" and puts everyone on notice that the status quo must be shaken up. In his second book, Showdown: Confronting Bias, Lies and the Special Interests That Divide America, Larry again takes on the Nanny State, "victicrats" and the politically correct. His third book, What's Race Got to Do with It? Why it's Time to Stop the Stupidest Argument in America, is praised as an important, groundbreaking must-read for the future of race relations in America. His latest book, Dear Father, Dear Son: Two Lives, Eight Hours, is a deeply moving, personal story of anger and reconciliation with his dad, who grew up fatherless and was kicked out of his house at 13 years old, on the eve of the Great Depression in the Jim Crow South. Elder also writes a nationally syndicated newspaper column distributed through Creators Syndicate.

The son of a janitor, Larry was born and raised in South Central Los Angeles. He attended Brown University, receiving a BA in Political Science in 1974. He then attended University of Michigan, School of Law, graduating in 1977. After graduation, he worked with a large law firm in Cleveland, Ohio, where he practiced litigation. He then opened "Laurence A. Elder and Associates," a business specializing in recruiting experienced attorneys. At the same time, he hosted a topic-oriented television show in Cleveland, first on PBS, then on the local Fox affiliate.

Larry created, directed and produced his first film, "Michael & Me," a documentary that examines the history and use of guns in America. It was released in August, 2005.

Larry was host of the television show, "Moral Court," distributed by Warner Brothers Television. In the fall of 2004, Warner Brothers returned Elder to daily television with "The Larry Elder Show," an hour-long, multi-topic show that brought common sense, sound advice and realistic, workable solutions. Elder was the subject of profiles by both "60 Minutes" and "20/20." In 1999 he received a Los Angeles area Emmy for "Best News Special." He was the reporter for several episodes of the groundbreaking PBS "National Desk" series, including "Redefining Racism: Fresh Voices From Black America." His PBS work earned him a 1998 AEGIS Award of Excellence, a 1998 Telly award, and a 1999 Emerald City Gold Award of Excellence.

Larry has established the Larry Elder Charities, a non-profit organization that will contribute to groups and individuals offering non-government, self-help solutions to problems of poverty, crime, poor parenting, dependency, and education.
