Leslie Marshall is no newcomer to the world of talk radio; she has been a radio talk host for more than 20 years and a political pundit on national television for the past ten. Leslie was the youngest person ever to be nationally syndicated on radio when she replaced Tom Snyder on the ABC Satellite Radio Network in 1992. She was also the first woman to host an issues-oriented program nationwide.
Leslie started her talk radio career at WNWS in Miami. When WNWS changed formats, Leslie moved to host middays at WGR Newsradio in Buffalo, New York. In just two ratings books, Leslie beat the ratings of the unbeatable Rush Limbaugh. Having such strong ratings, Leslie was sought after in the top ten radio markets. Leslie left Buffalo for Houston, Texas, where she hosted middays again, and beat Mr. Limbaugh again—but this time, it only took one ratings book.
All this time, the network had been watching Leslie, and in 1992 she got her chance. The ABC Satellite Radio Network/Daynet offered Leslie national syndication, making her the youngest person ever syndicated in talk radio at the time. And she had some big shoes to fill: Tom Snyder’s. Leslie’s program was heard on more than 200 stations nationwide for three years.
Leslie followed up with stints at top stations in Chicago, San Francisco and Sacramento, before finally settling in Los Angeles, where she hosted talk shows on KFI, KLSX and KABC radio. She’s also been seen on programs including The O’Reilly Factor, Hannity & Colmes Your World with Neil Cavuto; Scarborough Country; Showbiz Tonight; and Kudlow & Company on CNBC. Leslie also lent her talents to the printed page, being published in The Buffalo News, The Metromedia News, Talkers Magazine and The National Association of Radio Talk Show Hosts newsletters.
In 2007, Leslie was syndicated for a second time by Talk USA. Her program can be heard nationwide, Monday through Friday, 3-6pm Eastern.
