"He is host of the ""Sean Hannity Show"" now carried on nearly 400 ABC Radio Network stations, reaching almost 12 million people. He is also host of the highly successful FOX NEWS CHANNEL'S, ""Hannity and Colmes"". The gutsy talk show host always lands on the ""right side"" of the issues. Hannity got his start in commercial radio after drawing attention and enthusiasm from his college radio station. He placed a ""JOB WANTED"" ad in the R&R, billing himself as ""the most talked about college radio host in America."" A station in Huntsville, Alabama took a chance on the brash young voice. The world of talk radio would never be the same.
From that first station in Alabama, Hannity quickly moved to WGST in Atlanta where his strong ratings attracted the attention of WABC New York and the Fox News Channel, in the fall of 1996. Hannity moved to New York to co-host Fox News Network's, ""Hannity and Colmes"" show. Fox was so confident in Hannity's ability to attract viewers, it slotted the show at 9pm, opposite Geraldo on CNBC and Larry King on CNN. Today the ""Hannity and Colmes"" show is one of the most successful cable news shows. In addition to his ""on-air"" duties, Hannity is also the author of the New York Times best seller, ""Let Freedom Ring: Winning the War of Liberty Over Liberalism.""
Hannity grew up in Franklin Square, Long Island in the shadows of Manhattan. By 1997, Hannity finally crossed the Williamsburg Bridge and joined 77WABC Radio in New York City, the nation's largest market. There he quickly became the #1 rated News and Talk show in the afternoon drive period. But that was only the beginning. The show became so successful that by September 2001, ABC Radio decided to syndicate Hannity across the country. That bold move was such a success that Talker's Magazine deemed it, ""the fastest growing syndicated talk show in talk radio history."" After just one year in syndication, that same publication moved Hannity up to 2nd place in the nation in their semi-annual list of nationally syndicated radio talk show hosts. He had officially become an American phenomenon.
Voted ""Talk Personality of the Year"" in 2001 by the readers of R&R, Sean Hannity's energy, charisma and seasoned professionalism score high points with audiences and critics alike. Sean Hannity is the hottest commodity in talk radio."
