ABOUT HUGH HEWITT
So it’s no easy task to wake up an entire nation, but Hugh Hewitt is a broadcast pro who does it with ease. He is America’s true East Coast-West Coast man, doing the show most of the time from inside the Beltway of Washington DC, but other times from his studio in Southern California, where Hugh is a professor of law at Chapman University’s Fowler School of Law, teaching Constitutional Law.
When he’s inside the Beltway, Hugh will often appear on the panel many Sundays on the NBC’s Meet The Press. You’ll also see him popping up on MSNBC giving much needed conservative opinions. Hugh received national exposure when he was selected by CNN as one of the panelists for four of the 2016 debate stage for President of the United States. Hugh is the author of 14 books, including his most recent “The Fourth Way” outlining what America must do now that we have elected Donald Trump to the presidency. Now heard on around 400 affiliates, Hugh is one of the fastest growing shows on the Salem Radio Network. He is also a contributing columnist for The Washington Post and all his writing appears at Townhall.com
Hugh began his radio career on KFI in Los Angeles in 1990, and spent a decade as co-host of the nightly news and public affairs show on PBS’ Los Angeles affiliate KCET before launching his nationally syndicated show on 8 original stations on July 10, 2000. He moved to mornings in April 2016 and never missed a beat. Hugh and his wife, “The Fetching Mrs. Hewitt” as Hugh calls her on the air, live in northern VA. He is a graduate of Harvard College and the University of Michigan Law School, and spent six years in the Reagan Administration, including stints in the White House Counsel’s office and as Special Assistant to two Attorneys General. Hugh has also served on The California Arts Council, the South Coast Air Quality District and The Orange County Children and Families Commission.
ABOUT HERSCHEL WALKER
Whether on the football field, in the classroom, at the Olympics, in Mixed Martial Arts, as CEO of multiple businesses, or as spokesman for the Patriot Support Program, Herschel's work ethic, commitment to excellence, and love for America has inspired millions.
Now, he is tackling his next challenge: winning a seat in the United States Senate.
Herschel Walker was born on March 3, 1962, to his parents, Willis and Christine Walker. Raised in Wrightsville, Georgia, Herschel was taught faith in God and the small- town values of discipline and sacrifice.
During his high school years, he led both his football and track teams to state championships while also graduating valedictorian of Johnson County High School.
Herschel Walker is considered by many to be the greatest college football player of all time. As a freshman at the University of Georgia, Walker helped the Bulldogs win the 1980 national championship. He earned consensus All-American honors three consecutive years in both football and track & field, set 10 NCAA and 15 SEC records, and capped a sensational college career by winning the 1982 Heisman Trophy. In 1999, he was voted into the College Football Hall of Fame and was selected as the greatest player in college football in the last half-century.
After three spectacular years at UGA, Walker gave up his final year of collegiate eligibility to play professional football. During his 15-year pro-football career in the USFL and NFL, Walker played for the New Jersey Generals, Dallas Cowboys, Minnesota Vikings, Philadelphia Eagles, and New York Giants, setting the current single-season pro-football rushing record of 2,411 yards, leading the NFL in rushing, gaining more total yards than anyone in professional football history, and receiving numerous All-Pro and Pro-Bowl honors.
Additionally, Walker broke a world record in the 60-yard dash, represented the United States in the 1992 Winter Olympics in bobsledding, earned a fifth-degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do, and went undefeated as a Mixed Martial Arts fighter. Herschel has also performed in the Fort Worth Ballet, competed on The Apprentice, and won the Celebrity Cook-Off on the Food Network.
In recognition of his numerous athletic accomplishments, President Donald J. Trump appointed Herschel chair of the President’s Council on Sports, Fitness and Nutrition. To encourage a healthy lifestyle for all Americans, Herschel visited Capitol Hill multiple times to meet with members of Congress and discuss the importance of fitness and nutrition.
Walker’s unmatched work ethic extends far beyond athletics. He is also the successful owner and CEO of two businesses in the food and service industry, H. Walker Enterprises, LLC and Renaissance Man Food Services, LLC. In true Herschel fashion, his brands have become successful food service lines to major hotel chains, the United States military, schools, concessions, and retail chains.
Since being diagnosed with Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID) as a result of trauma he experienced in childhood, Herschel has dedicated his life to helping others struggling with mental health. Prior to his college football career, Herschel strongly considered joining the Marines and has since looked for ways to honor our heroes in uniform.
That dream came true when he was appointed spokesman for Universal Health Services’ Patriot Support Program where he has visited hundreds of military bases sharing his personal story to help remove stigmas around mental health. He also wrote Breaking Free, a memoir chronicling his battle with DID which has encouraged thousands who face similar struggles to ask for help and seek treatment.
Walker graduated from UGA with a Bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice.
ABOUT ALFREDO ORTIZ
Alfredo Ortiz is the president and CEO of the Job Creators Network, where he has led the defense of small businesses from the onslaught of bad government policies. Alfredo has testified before legislative committees about the impact of taxation and regulation on small business growth, and speaks frequently to business organizations across the nation about the need for job creators to seize responsibility for defending free enterprise.
He has been widely published in major media outlets, including The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, CNBC, The Hill, and U.S. News & World Report and is a frequent guest on cable news networks and national radio talk shows, including CNN, Fox News, Hugh Hewitt, Mike Gallagher, and the Dennis Prager Show. He is an advisory board member for Littler’s Workplace Policy Institute.
Ortiz was instrumental in helping pass the historic tax cuts bill of 2017. Working with former Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich, Ortiz focused and directed JCN’s grassroots and business community to support Congressional leadership and include small business owners in the tax cut bill. JCN sent more than 550,000 emails to Congress and ran a multi-million dollar media campaign to support the bill.
Prior to joining JCN, Alfredo was marketing and corporate strategy consultant, working for a variety of Fortune 500 companies. Alfredo received his MBA at the University of Michigan and graduated from Pomona College with a bachelor’s degree in Economics.
Born to immigrant parents in Southern California, Alfredo saw first-hand the importance of job creation and economic opportunity, as his parents fought for their piece of the American Dream. Now he is grateful for the opportunity to lead an organization that can serve as advocates for the nearly 30 million small business owners in this country that are also fighting for their American Dream, and the nearly 60 million employees that are dependent on the success of these small business owners.
