Radio talk show host Bill Press is ending his daily radio program May 31, he has announced. On Twitter, the 79-year-old longtime liberal talker wrote to his more than 32,000 followers, “We’ve had a great 14 year run of daily shows, but it’s time to transition,” according to The Hill. “The last daily show will be May 31, but don’t worry. My voice will still be front and center as we enter the 2020 election. Big news coming soon."
That news looks to be the launch of a new podcast, where he will report specifically on the 2020 election, beginning in June. He already has a podcast that accompanies the radio show. Press is also an opinion contributor for The Hill, has worked at CNN and MSNBC (most notably as a co-host of CNN's debate program, "Crossfire," from 1996-2002) and is the author of eight books, including most recently, “Trump Must Go: The Top 100 Reasons to Dump Trump.” He was chairman of the California Democratic Party from 1993 to 1996.
As a radio broadcaster for more than 50 years, "The Bill Press Show" has been airing since 2005.
