Larry O'Connor is a radio talk show host on Washington, D.C.'s WMAL where he hosts the morning drive time show O'Connor & Company. He is a senior columnist and creative director at Town Hall Media. He is a regular guest on Fox News and Newsmax and has also been seen on ABC News, the PBS Newshour, and MSNBC. Larry has been a frequent guest host for nationally-syndicated hosts Mark Levin, Dennis Miller and Hugh Hewitt.
Prior to joining Townhall, Larry’s writing has appeared on Hot Air, The Federalist, Washington Free Beacon, IJ Review, and Andrew Breitbart's trailblazing original websites Big Hollywood, Big Government, andBreitbartTV.
While at Breitbart, O'Connor became a trailblazer himself by creating one of the first, live, daily internet radio programs/podcast which quickly attracted a large and loyal following. The online program led to his high-profile guest-hosting appearances and, eventually, his current job on WMAL—one of the highest-rated and most influential talk radio stations in America. He was the first online radio host to successfully transition to a major-market radio career.
Before radio, Larry was the general manager of the Shubert Theatre in Los Angeles where he oversaw the American premiere of Andrew Lloyd Webber's Sunset Blvd., starring Glenn Close. He also worked on major productions, including Ragtime, Rent, Beauty and the Beast, Chicago, Cats, and A Chorus Line. During his theatre career, Larry worked with Sir Ian McKellen, Kelsey Grammar, Christine Baranski, Neil Patrick Harris, Adam Lambert, and, regrettably, Val Kilmer.
Larry is married to journalist Meredith Dake-O'Connor and they have four children: Quinn, a senior at UCLA; Veronica, a third-year midshipman at the Naval Academy; Christian, a junior in high school; and EJ, a special needs high school freshman.
