This week, I celebrate 18 years on the radio. My deepest thanks to everyone who has supported me on this incredible journey.
Every weekday from 7-11 a.m. CT on WGSO 990 AM and I discuss the hot topics of the day with our great listeners. It is a true honor to be on the air in 2017, during this significant period of our nation’s history.
You have my sincere invitation to call in at #504-556-9696 and express your views. I accept all opinions as Ringside Politics is an on-air celebration of our free speech rights.
Be sure to check out my column below, a reflection on the past 18 years being a conservative voice in the interesting environment of New Orleans.
Hope too see you on the airwaves!
Kind Regards,
Jeff Crouere

Back in late January of 1999, I had just finished a two-year stint as Executive Director and Deputy Chairman of the Louisiana Republican Party. Looking for a new project, I started a political newsletter with journalist and commentator Christopher Tidmore.
While interviewing Ed Butler, the new General Manager of talk station WTIX 690 AM, we were offered positions as talk show hosts on the station. Of course, we gladly accepted his kind invitation, although we had no experience or training. It was a great opportunity for complete novices. Fortunately, Butler was patient as we learned the business and became more comfortable on the air.
Eventually, Chris moved to another station and I brought on a new co-host, Leslie Stewart, to fill the role of my liberal counterpart. A year after the radio show started, we created a television version of the show and I recruited former New Orleans Mayor Marc Morial as my liberal co-host. Our radio and TV on-air battles were spirited, but respectful, hopefully educating our audience not demoralizing them.
After another year, I bid fond adieu to both Leslie and the Mayor and had the formidable challenge to be the solo host of both programs. A show that had started asPolitically Speaking Louisiana Style became Ringside Politics.
