Firing Line with Margaret Hoover


Firing Line with Margaret Hoover brings together the brightest minds and freshest voices from across the political spectrum to engage in a contest of ideas about important issues confronting liberal democracy.

The show will maintain the character of
the original series by William F. Buckley, providing a platform that is conservative in its faithfulness to bedrock American values, and diligent in its commitment to a balanced exchange of opinion. The show will be complemented by archival footage from the original Firing Line series, which broadcast more than 1,500 episodes during its memorable 33-year run.

Firing Line with Margaret Hoover airs every Friday at 8:30 pm, and Saturday at 10 am on WNET Channel Thirteen.
