Weekdays – Armed American Radio’s Daily Defense with Mark Walters-Monday-Friday 4-5p ET, 1-2p PT

Beginning Monday, April 6th, 2015 Mark kicked off the newest daytime radio show in America with the Armed American Radio Daily Defense with Mark Walters show. Listeners wanted more and you got it! Keeping the same core audience, the daily show will have greater flexibility to explore the current events that relate to our rights and freedoms but rarely, if ever make the national news. Being able to focus on the current events of each day as they pertain to our freedoms and the well-funded attacks against them, Mark is better able to explore topics that matter to every American in a daily format. When asked about the relationship between the two programs, Mark’s response was “Married but living in separate rooms, if that makes any sense. The weekend format required me to pass over many stories in the essence of time, show prep technique I call ‘topic triage’ forcing me to focus on a few stories and miss many others. The daytime format allows me much more flexibility and the power to connect to a news-hungry daily audience. While the weekday program will be more news-oriented, the weekend show will be able to tie it all together nicely. While every other talk radio personality is discussing the exact same things each day, I’ll be giving listeners something they’ve never heard before on talk radio!”

Mark Walters, Syndicated Radio Host, Author, Columnist, Activist, Speaker

In November of 2002 just two weeks after the birth of his daughter, Mark found himself the secondary intended victim of an apparent carjacking attempt while stopped at a traffic light on E. Fletcher Ave. in the Suitcase City section of Tampa, FL on his way to work one day. Luckily on that November morning, he was carrying his Glock 36, .45 caliber handgun. When the criminals, both of them, found themselves unable to get into the vehicle just off of his left bumper, they turned their attention towards him.

Watching the frightening events unfold in front of him and happening at a frantic pace, Mark leveled his .45 at the criminal standing just feet away from him and approaching his vehicle. When confronted with a gun pointed directly at his chest and without having to squeeze the trigger, the closest attacker waved off his partner and both men retreated to their vehicle and fled the scene.

That frightening experience became the first chapter in Mark’s first Book, Lessons from Armed America with Kathy Jackson.

Mark had always been a supporter of the right to bear arms but rededicated his life to the preservation of our Second Amendment rights after that frightening event.

His letters and opinions appeared many times in the Tampa Tribune over the years countering the anti-gun views of a local anti-gun crusader. Mark is the co-author of three critically acclaimed books. His first, Lessons from Armed America, co-written with Kathy Jackson ( foreword by Massad Ayoob), was released in October 2009 by Whitefeather Press to great reviews and highlights the stories of those who found found themselves the victims of violent crime and either used a gun or wished they had one when they needed it most, including his own story. Written in groundbreaking format, Mark told the story of the frightening events of true crime which his co-author followed with critical analysis. His second book, Lessons from Unarmed America written in the same format with famed trainer and self-defense expert Rob Pincus includes a foreword by rock star and activist Ted Nugent. Now, his third work, Grilling While Armed-The Top 20 Recipes: How to get off the gas and become your neighborhood BBQ pit boss in one day, is released to great reviews. Co-written with noted firearm expert and long time AAR contributor, George “The Mad Ogre” Hill, GWA has become a smash success. Many years in the works, Mark considers it his best project to date!

Both national radio shows have broken new ground in the world of talk radio by bringing significant exposure to the plights of Americans’ fight for their right to self-defense. Interviewing some of the nations biggest news makers and activists as well as hard-hitting political commentary on the day’s current firearm news, both the weekend and weekday shows are one of a kind. The list of folks Mark speaks with includes rock stars, country singers, radio personalities, national and local politicians, TV stars, internationally recognized trainers, weapons experts, criminal psychologists, television hosts, authors, attorneys, real people who have used a firearm to defend themselves against violent attack and regular, ordinary folks who make a difference.

Mark was one of the headline speakers at the Second Amendment March in Washington, DC on April 19th, 2010 joining other guests such as Suzanna Hupp, Sheriff Mack, Dick Heller, Mancow, and others who proudly proclaimed the birthright of every American to keep and bear arms. He has appeared countless times as a guest on local and national radio shows including the Mike Gallagher Show, Bill Bennet’s Morning in America, The Michael Medved Show, Dennis Prager, Hugh Hewitt, Lars Larson, The Bill Cunningham Show, The Janet Mefford Show and many, many others including co-hosting the nationally syndicated G. Gordon Liddy program. In addition, Mark was a guest on Fox Business Channel’s The Stossel Show, with John Stossel to discuss the topic of More Guns, Less Crime and appeared weekly as a guest on the popular live web TV program, American Trigger Sports Network with host James Towle as well as the Stop the Threat television series. Marks interviews on AAR over the years have been mentioned in every major newspaper in America including USA Today, Washington Post, LA Times, Boston Herald, NY Post, Rolling Stone, Variety, Miami Herald, every major TV and cable network and on and on.

In 2015, Mark was Honored by the Gun Rights Policy Conference as their “Gun Rights Defender of the Year” award recipient followed in 2017 as the “Distinguished Service Award” recipient. Mark is the East Coast Media spokesperson for the Second Amendment Foundation and a member of the Board of Directors of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms.

Mark is an NRA Certified Instructor in three disciplines, a long standing Media Member of the National Shooting Sports Foundation as well as a card-carrying member of the Second Amendment Foundation, The Gun Owners of America and a vocal 2nd amendment activist in every aspect of his life. In the spare time of his “real life,” he ran his own successful transportation brokerage business for over 13 years and now works full time to bring you the Armed American Radio and Daily Defense Shows as the owner of the two radio programs and their parent company, CCW Broadcast Media LLC. He is a husband and the proud father of two great kids residing outside the metropolitan Atlanta area.

Mark defends our freedoms with the RIGHT voice at the RIGHT time and brings a frank discussion of the right to bear arms at a time this right is threatened as never before. It’s a historic time to be a gun rights defender and Mark holds nothing back SIX days of every week, live on the nations airwaves.

Because our freedoms are at stake. We are now faced with the most ANTI-FREEDOM, GUN HATING agenda in our nation’s history. The timing for this program is no coincidence. Patriotic Americans are needed to stand up and defend our Constitutional rights now more than ever. The onslaught of gun-haters who want to take away your freedoms cannot and will not go unattended by Mark Walters.
