Dennis Prager has signed an extension to keep The Dennis Prager Show with Salem Media Group. However, he’ll shrink the show from three hours down to two.

In a press release, Salem claims it was Prager’s idea to shrink the program so he could focus on completing a five-volume commentary on the Bible, and other books.

As a result of the lack of a third hour, Dennis Prager will host an additional five-minute segment at the beginning of each hour of his shortened show, allowing listeners the “opportunity to hear what’s on Dennis’s mind straight up at the top of the hour”. according to a release from the network.

“I love Salem and have enormous gratitude for this partnership over the last 25 years when I became a nationally syndicated host with Salem,” said Prager. “I am blessed to have the daily opportunity to influence America’s culture for good and I think listeners will really appreciate the new added talk-time in each of my two hours.”

“Dennis Prager is a true talk radio icon and has been for the last 42 years since he first began on the radio at KABC in Los Angeles hosting the original ‘Religion on the Line,’” added Salem Senior Vice President of Spoken Word Phil Boyce. “Millions of listeners spend the day with Dennis, enjoying his wit, wisdom, and knowledge. He is one of the most viral talk hosts on the air today, and we wanted him to remain on the Salem Radio Network for years to come.”

In the place of Prager’s final hour, Salem Radio Network will offer affiliates The Charlie Kirk Show.

Prager has been part of the Salem Radio lineup since 1999, and while a timeframe wasn’t placed on his new deal, the company claims he will remain a staple of the network “for the foreseeable future”.
