Michael Graham returns to DC

Michael Graham
In case you missed reports earlier this week, Michael Graham is returning to Washington as creative director for MediaDC. MediaDC is the parent company for Red Alert Politics, The Weekly Standard, and The Washington Examiner. Graham already hosts a podcast for TWS.

From a FishbowlDC report:

Graham is tasked with overseeing and promoting MediaDC’s social and multimedia efforts. “My job will be to raise the level of MediaDC’s audio/video and new media offerings up to the high standards its writers and reporters set every day,” said Graham in a statement. “I’m looking forward to the challenge.”

Since 2014, he has been working for NewsRadio 106.7 in Atlanta. Prior to that he worked in talk radio in Charlotte, Charleston, Washington, and the Boston area.

Graham previously left DC after WMAL management was pressured to drop him by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) about comments he made.

Graham also wore a INS t-shirt to a CASA de Maryland rally and was told to leave or wear it inside out when he was working at WMAL. He had just started working at WBT when I first met him when I was orking at The Andy Thomas Show as a political reporter. I started Palmetto Journal a few months prior to that.

Michael Graham: Standup Comedian to Political Consultant to Writer

Graham graduated from Oral Roberts University after growing up in the small town of Pelion, South Carolina. He was a standup comedian and, as a political consultant, worked for Pat Buchanan in the 1992 SC Primary. He also worked for Harold Worley in the Republican primary in 1996 against Strom Thurmond.

When Graham worked for the SC Secretary of State, he also hosted a weekend radio show on SC Public Radio. After comments he made on his radio show angered members of the state legislature, they wrote his job in the Secretary of State’s office out of the state budget. This resulted in his first book – Banned from Public Radio.

Graham also wrote a laugh-out-loud funny weekly column that appeared in the Charleston City Paper and in Columbia’s Free Times. His second book, Clinton & Me, featured a picture of Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky on the cover. At a book signing, he inscribed my copy to “South Carolina’s Matt Drudge.” He wrote another book called Redneck Nation after that and has written ebooks as well.
