"I don't believe in atheists." -- Neal Boortz
Neal A. Boortz, Jr. (born April 6, 1945) is an American libertarian radio host, author, and political commentator. His nationally syndicated talk show, The Neal Boortz Show, airs throughout the United States on Dial Global (formerly Jones Radio Networks). It is ranked seventh in overall listeners, with 4.25+ million per week. The content of the show centers around politics, current events, social issues and miscellaneous topics of interest, which Boortz discusses with callers, correspondents and guests. Boortz touches on many controversial topics and refers to himself an "equal opportunity offender."
Boortz has been involved in talk radio since the beginning of his career as a broadcaster in 1969, while a student at Texas A&M University, where he was an on-air personality at WTAW-AM. After finishing at A&M he moved to Atlanta and became a fan of WRNG-AM, Atlanta’s first talk radio station. Boortz was an avid listener and regular caller to the morning show, which was hosted by Herb Elfman. But the untimely passing of Elfman created an opening for a new morning show host and after a two-week “trial run,” Boortz was offered the permanent position.
Boortz has received many industry accolades including being named one of the “25 Most Important Radio Talk Show Hosts in America” by Talkers magazine, and one of “Georgia’s 100 Most Influential People” by Georgia Trend. Boortz was inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame in 2009, marking him as one of the most durable personalities in the field of talk radio.
Boortz's first book was The Commencement Speech You Need To Hear in 1997, followed by The Terrible Truth About Liberals, in 1998. In 2005, he co-wrote The FairTax Book with Congressman John Linder, proposing to implement a national retail sales tax in lieu of federal income taxes, payroll taxes, estate tax, etc. Due to his involvement with the FairTax, Boortz is featured in the documentary film An Inconvenient Tax.
