Bill Bennett's Morning In America is one of the finest talk shows on the radio. It's lively, informative, stimulating conversation conducted in a civilized manner with interesting guests, pertinent topics, and attentive callers with opinions that give you lots to think about.
Bennett's show is heard in Philadelphia from 6 till 9 every morning on WNTP newstalk 990 on the AM dial. It is also heard throughout the United States and on Sirius satellite Channel 144.
This is not a "shout show." Bennett never raises his voice. And this is not a boast-fest or an ego celebration. Though Bennett is an extremely accomplished person, he doesn't huckster himself, his books, his ideas or the show. Rather, his listens - really listens - to callers and guests and responds with insight and clarity. All ideas are entertained and everyone is treated respectfully.
