Brian Whitman

Brian Whitman has called Southern California home for twenty years. Two decades ago, he was hosting "The Brian Whitman Morning Show" on KKBH-FM (102.9 FM) in San Diego. He spent 14 years doing celebrity impressions and original characters on "The Rick Dees in the Morning Show" on KIIS FM from 1991 through 2004. He was also a talk show host for 7 years on KABC AM (1998 - 2005) and also co-hosted the evening talk show on KLSX-FM in the mid 2000's for three years with Tim Conway, Jr. from 2005 through 2008, garnering a significant and sizable following of listeners.

He is well known as one of the top voice impersonators in the country, getting his start on the legendary Z-100 in New York on the Scott Shannon morning show at 13 years old doing Ronald Reagan and Rodney Dangerfield! For many years Brian operated his own nationally syndicated comedy service providing comedy and funny voices (from celebrity impressions to original characters) to millions of listeners each week on hundreds of radio stations and shows all across America including Rick Dees/KIIS/LA, Scott Shannon/WPLJ/NY, Matty in the Morning/WXKS/Boston, Bobby Mitchell & The Wake Up With The Wolf Show/KPLX/Dallas, The Kevin Matthews Show/WLUP/Chicago! The internationally syndicated Rick Dees Weekly Top 40 and literally hundreds more featured Whitman for a decade and a half! Being financially rewarded in a way that shocked him and his Dad, the NYPD Officer, Brian Whitman was hooked on radio and often quipped that "he'd do it for free!"

Brian grew up on Staten Island, New York and became the youngest radio talk show host in the history of the legendary 77 WABC AM in New York City in 1997 when he was just 24 years old!

Even though he's worked in the radio business since being a teenager, Brian did find time to earn a Bachelors Degree in Political Science from New York's Wagner College in 1994.

Ben Shapiro

Ben Shapiro was born in Burbank and brought up in the home of two Reagan Republicans, where intelligent conversation about politics and philosophy was encouraged.  Ben quickly developed into a reasoned political thinker and a powerful writer.

Ben entered UCLA at the age of 16 and was never afraid to challenge the liberal professors and faculty.  At 17, he became the youngest nationally syndicated columnist in the US with his columns printed in major newspapers and on websites.

In addition to his hosting duties on the Morning Answer, Ben also is an editor-at-large of and a national best-selling author.

Elisha Krauss

Elisha is a home-schooled girl from Oklahoma who made a name for herself in New York City.  As an 18 year old freshman at the King's College in Manhattan, she found herself at WABC in New York putting together the nationally syndicated Sean Hannity Show.   "After being behind the scenes in radio for years, I know this is a huge opportunity to share my conservative beliefs with the AM870 The Answer audience everyday," says Elisha.
