Larry Elder Bio

A "firebrand libertarian" according to Daily Variety, best-selling author and radio talk-show host Larry Elder has a take-no-prisoners style, using such old-fashioned things as evidence and logic. Larry shines the bright light of reasoned analysis on many of the myths and hypocrisies apparent in our system of government, our society and the media itself. He slays dragons and topples sacred cows using facts, common sense and a ready wit.

Larry has hosted the longest-running afternoon drive time radio show in Los Angeles since March 1994. "The Larry Elder Show," a top-rated daily program from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. (PT) on KABC 790, became a nationally syndicated daily talk show for ABC Radio Networks on Aug. 12, 2002. Known to his listeners as the "Sage From South Central," Larry sizzles on the airwaves with his thoughtful insight on the day's most provocative issues, to the delight, consternation and entertainment of his listeners. The "Sage" engages political and cultural leaders in meaningful debates over race, government, personal responsibility and education that have elevated the talk radio genre. A blend of fiscal conservative and social liberal -- with attitude -- Elder's libertarian views have fueled controversy and made him one of the most in-demand radio personalities in the country. In May 2003, Elder shifted his political party registration from "Decline to State" (which, in California, means independent) to the Republican Party. He continues to support the libertarian principles of limited government and maximum personal and financial responsibility.

In his best-selling book, The 10 Things You Can't Say in America, Larry skewers the crippling myths that dominate the public agenda. Larry punctures all pretension, trashes accepted "wisdom" and puts everyone on notice that the status quo must be shaken up. In his second book, Showdown: Confronting Bias, Lies and the Special Interests That Divide America, Larry again takes on liberals, victicrats and the politically correct. He writes a nationally syndicated newspaper column distributed through Creators Syndicate.

Born and raised in South Central Los Angeles, Elder attended Brown University, receiving a BA in Political Science in 1974. He then attended University of Michigan, School of Law, graduating in 1977. Immediately following graduation, he worked with a large law firm in Cleveland, Ohio, where he practiced litigation. He then opened "Laurence A. Elder and Associates," a business specializing in recruiting experienced attorneys. At the same time, he hosted a topic-oriented television show in Cleveland, first on PBS, then on the local Fox affiliate.

Larry was host of the television show "Moral Court," distributed by Warner Brothers Television. In the fall of 2004, Warner Brothers returned Elder to daily television with "The Larry Elder Show," an hour-long, multi-topic show that brought common sense, sound advice and realistic, workable solutions back to daytime TV. Elder was the subject of a profile by "60 Minutes," and sat in for the vacationing Geraldo on CNBC's "Rivera Live." He was the reporter on the groundbreaking PBS "National Desk," including the segment, "Redefining Racism: Fresh Voices From Black America," for which he won a 1998 AEGIS Award of Excellence, a 1998 Telly award and a 1999 Emerald City Gold Award of Excellence. He has portrayed himself on sitcoms ranging from "The Hughleys" to "Spin City." He has also appeared on:

  • Oprah
  • Rolanda
  • Larry King Live
  • Hard Copy
  • CNN News
  • CNN Talk Back Live
  • 20/20
  • The Tonight Show
  • Today Show

  • MacNeil-Lehrer
  • CSPAN
  • Politically Incorrect
  • Geraldo
  • Extra
  • The Chris Rock Show
  • The Late, Late Show With Tom Snyder
  • Dennis Miller Live

Larry created, directed and produced his first film, "Michael & Me," a documentary that examines the use of guns in America, which was released in August 2005.

Larry has established the Larry Elder Charities, a non-profit organization that will contribute to groups and individuals offering non-government, self-help solutions to problems of poverty, crime, poor parenting, dependency and education.
