RedState, Human Events, Regnery gobbled up by Salem's conservative media empire


Recommended Posts

2542043Washington Examiner:

Ann Coulter, David Limbaugh, Erick Erickson and Michelle Malkin have a new publisher in Washington today, the expanding Christian conservative media empire of Salem Communications Corp., recently dubbed "the new power in conservative media."


Salem on Monday completed the purchase of Eagle Publishing, which operates Regnery, the nation's leading conservative book publisher; Human Events, one of the oldest conservative news providers; and the popular website RedState, headed by Erickson. Two other properties, Eagle Financial Publications and Eagle Wellness, were included. No price was provided to Secrets.


The move gives Salem, already a huge force in conservative radio and Christian broadcasting and publishing, an immediate and powerful presence in the nation's capital, where Eagle and Regnery have long ruled the right's publishing roost. Among Regnery's best-selling authors are Limbaugh, Ed Klein, Malkin, Dinesh D’Souza, Mark Levin, Laura Ingraham and Newt Gingrich.

It also gives some financial stability to Eagle's properties, including Human Events, which recently ended its print edition.

Salem, based in Camarillo, Calif., near the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Library in Simi Valley, owns 102 radio stations, including WRC in Washington. They also have a network that distributes talk, news and music programming to approximately 2,000 affiliates.Scissors-32x32.png
