Westwood One just announced a “lifetime extension” for “The Mark Levin Show” hosted by nationally syndicated radio talk show host Mark Levin.

“Mark Levin will continue his eponymous talk show for many years to come, as ‘The Mark Levin Show’ has now been extended through 2025,” reads the Westwood One press release. “Levin, one of the most important, popular, and trusted voices in radio, is always at the top of the political conversation.  Indeed, his name has been invoked by candidates throughout the presidential primary process during the debates and at campaign rallies.”

Mark Levin’s show, which covers “the most critical events of the day,” reads the press release, also delves into history, economics, philosophy, and the constitution and is an enormous ratings and revenue winner for Westwood One and for the more than 300 stations that broadcast the show.

“I could not be more pleased to extend my radio partnership with Cumulus/Westwood One,” remarked Levin. “For the next nine years -- an unprecedented long-term relationship in the broadcasting industry -- I am committed to continuing to bring the best possible program, both substantive and entertaining, to my millions of beloved and loyal listeners each and every day.”

Bart Tessler, Westwood One EVP, News & Talk seemed equally pleased with the deal adding, “We couldn't be more pleased to announce this lifetime agreement with Mark. To know that we'll be working together for so many years is a Mark Levin Show primary victory and a big win for affiliates, advertisers, and listeners. Mark's tenure will now exceed that of a two-term president and that means continued excellence on the air on a nightly basis."
