TWT Launches Magazine for Black Conservatives

Well they’re just gunna try a little bit of everything over at The Washington Times, aren’t they?

Today the paper announced they will launch a magazine for black conservatives, the American CurrentSee. (We guess that’s a pun?) Ben Carson -the neurosurgeon  whose jeremiad against political correctness and healthcare reform at the National Prayer Breakfast last year made him famous in conservative circles -will be the publisher of the new digital weekly. Conservative columnist and radio host  Armstrong Williams will serve as executive editor. Fox News’ Juan Williams will also contribute to the first issue, which comes out March 30th.

TWT Expands Stable of Conservative Voices with Addition of O’Donnell

In what appears to be an effort to staff their paper with outspoken conservative voices that appeal to a Tea Party audience, The Washington Times announced today that former Delaware Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell is being brought on as a columnist.

This follows the recent hirings of Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, defense hawk Cliff May, and radio hosts Tammy Bruce, Steve Deace, and Rusty Humphries. The spate of new hires also illustrates TWT Editor John Solomon‘s commitment to transforming the Times from a conventional paper into a multi-platform brand. In addition to her column, O’Donnell will serve as a commentator for TWT‘s nascent radio and video efforts. DeLay is also hosting an on-demand radio show, and Bruce, Deace, and Humphries will all contribute to online efforts as well as to the paper.

O’Donnell, of course, made a name for herself during her ultimately unsuccessful 2010 run for a Delaware Senate seat. She managed to defeat long-serving establishment Republican Rep. Mike Castle in the primary, but lost to Democrat Chris Coons in the general by a wide margin. She has since been a contributor on CNN and Fox News.

 

Tea Party Talker Rusty Humphries To Be Key Part of TWT Expansion

Rusty Humphries, a spokesman for the Tea Party Leadership Fund and a former conservative radio show host from Arizona, has been hired by The Washington Times. Humphries will have a significant role at TWT. He will be a weekly columnist, a blogger and a daily video show host.

Humphries’ appointment is part of Editor John Solomon‘s plan to transform The Washington Times from a conservative relic into a multi-platform juggernaut. The paper has also hired two other contributors in recent weeks. Cliff May will write a foreign affairs column, and Iowa radio host Steve Deace will pen an opinion column, as well as produce radio content for the paper.

Until it ended last October, Humphries’ radio show was the 6th most listened to show in the country, according to Talkers Magazine. He is also a singer/songwriter and creator of the song “Do the Bart Simpson” -yes really. His albums include Bomb Iraq: Rusty Humphries Takes On the Terrorists, and Thank Allah I’m a Jihad Boy.
