Ron Paul Talk Radio Segment Set To Debut In March

Starting in March, former Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) will be taking his libertarian-leaning voice to talk radio, where he'll deliver one-minute radio commentaries twice a day.

Courtside Entertainment Group announced the upcoming launch of "Ron Paul's America" in a statement on Wednesday.

"There's no questioning the fact that Ron Paul is one of today's most impactful leaders. His thoughts and opinions have created a significant and loyal following that has made its presence known throughout the country," said Norm Pattiz, founder of Westwood One and Courtside Entertainment Group and chairman of Launchpad Digital Media. "That following includes college campuses, corporate offices and everything in between. His new radio show for Courtside and his digital presence via podcasting create a platform that will be hugely successful."

Paul addressed the career move, saying he was ready to deliver dispatches with an angle that people were "hungry" to hear.

"I am very excited to have this opportunity to take the message of freedom to more people than ever, especially now when our country needs it so much," said the former congressman and presidential candidate. "Radio and podcasting are a much more powerful means of communication than speaking on the floor of Congress."

Slated for a March 18 debut, Paul will also be joined by libertarian-conservative commentator Charles Goyette.

Last year, Paul also joined the public speaking circuit.
