After Salem Radio Network national host Larry Elder threw his hat into the ring to run for Governor of the State of California, Salem Media Group must replace Elder on his radio show for the period of time he is a legal candidate, through the election on September 14. If he loses Salem will return Larry to his position in the Salem Lineup, weekdays from 6-9pm ET.

During the time that Elder is away from the microphone, Salem has tapped Carl Jackson as Larry's replacement. Jackson already has a show on Salem-owned AM 950 The Answer in Orlando. He also is a regular substitute host for Dennis Prager, having done the Prager show 6 times already this year.

Jackson is a black conservative, who grew up outside Compton, California. He now owns his own business in Orlando, but has a secret desire to become a radio talk show host.

"Carl has a warm and engaging personality on the air, and because he had to fight his way out of hard circumstances, he is able to convince others of his correct life style decisions," said Salem Sr. VP of Spoken Word Formats Phil Boyce.

"When I was trying to find my way out of the poor life choices I had made, I read two of Larry's books. Now it is such an honor to sit in his chair for a time, during Larry's run for governor," added Jackson.
