A love for the Constitution is what drives TFAS Alumnus Mark Levin (ICPES 76). After proving himself in both the legal and political fields, Levin has now set out to conquer the media world.
Levin’s most recent achievement is his book analyzing the American judicial system, “Men in Black.” Rush Limbaugh of talk radio’s Rush Limbaugh Show and Sean Hannity of ABC Radio’s Sean Hannity Show and Fox News Channel’s Hannity and Colmes Show endorsed the book, which was released February 7, 2005. “Men in Black” quickly climbed to number four in the nation on the New York Times bestseller list.
Levin has also proven to be a success in the talk radio industry. In September 2003, after hosting a Sunday afternoon radio program, Levin was offered the competitive 6 p.m. slot on WABC AM in New York. Since then, his passion and intellect have made him a favorite of thousands of radio listeners in the area, and the show skyrocketed to number one on the AM dial in the first 18 months on the air.
In addition, Mark has been a frequent guest and substitute host on the Sean Hannity Show and has also been an advisor to Rush Limbaugh. He has appeared on hundreds of television and radio programs and is also a contributing editor for National Review Online and writes frequently for other publications.
Levin got his start by making a name for himself as one of America’s preeminent conservative analysts and constitutional lawyers through his position as President of Landmark Legal Foundation, one of the nation’s most prominent conservative legal groups. With the motto “Leading the Fight to Preserve America’s Founding Principles,” Levin continues to head the Foundation in its mission to promote free enterprise, property rights, educational choice, free speech, taxpayer rights, welfare reform and ethics in government in courtrooms throughout America.
In addition, Levin has left his mark in the political arena, serving as top advisor to several members of President Ronald Reagan’s Cabinet. His positions have included Chief of Staff to the Attorney General of the U.S. In 2001, he was honored with the prestigious Ronald Reagan Award by the American Conservative Union.
