FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
THE MCLAUGHLIN GROUP RETURNS TO THE AIRWAVES IN 2018!
THE ICONIC â€œAMERICAN ORIGINALâ€ RELAUNCHES ON ABC7-WJLA
MCLEAN, VA – The McLaughlin Group, â€œThe American Originalâ€ for over three decades, the sharpest minds, best sources, and hardest talk, returns on Sundays at 12:00 Noon on ABC7-WJLA beginning January 7.
John McLaughlin mentee Tom Rogan will be taking over as moderator, joined by iconic panelists Eleanor Clift, Pat Buchanan and Clarence Page. Rogan, in his early 30â€™s, has been working in Washington, DC as a respected political journalist and national TV commentator, and is not shy about expressing his opinions on major issues of the day. His cool demeanor will drive a lively yet respectful debate amongst his esteemed panelists.
A weekly rotating guest panelist will also join the group. This is the time, now more than ever, for balanced debate.
“John McLaughlin was my mentor and a very close friend. I can never fill his shoes, but I believe The McLaughlin Group’s unique blend of unfiltered news and unrestrained analysis has never been more necessary. With determination and mutual respect, the panel and myself will deliver for our viewers.â€
â€œFrom Spring 1982 to August 2016, John McLaughlin never missed a weekly “McLaughlin Group” show, giving America some of the most spirited public debates since the early Reagan years. The New Year will see the reunion and the return of “The Group” with the entire cast that was there when The Leader passed on. Look for us.â€

â€œJohn helped me find my voice. We didn’t agree on much, and he valued debate, so it was a good match. In that spirit that he embodied, the Group returns to do friendly battle in the clash of ideas in the Age of Trump. Game on!â€
â€œIâ€™m delighted by the many people who tell me they miss our program in these polarized times â€” for its â€˜civility,â€™ of all things. I miss it, too. Iâ€™m eager to get the old gang back together again.â€
The broadcast deal was brokered by Seth Berenzweig and Tod Castleberry of BL Sports & Media Group, a full service media agency located in McLean, VA.
