The McLaughlin Group returns to public television in September

MAryland Public Television

OWINGS MILLS, MD – The McLaughlin Group, a pioneer among political TV talk shows, returns to public television in September when weekly episodes begin airing on Maryland Public Television (MPT).

Viewers in the Maryland and Washington, D.C. area will have two opportunities to view the 30-minute program each weekend. A new episode will air Friday evenings at 11:30 p.m. and again Sunday mornings at 11 a.m. on MPT-HD, starting Friday, September 6.

Maryland Public Television and The McLaughlin Group’s production company, Re-Group Media, LLC, have entered into an agreement to produce and distribute the weekly series. The program will be recorded each Friday at a Washington, D.C studio.

As presenting station, MPT will market, promote, and distribute the program nationally through an agreement with American Public Television, a leading syndicator of programming for U.S. public television stations. The McLaughlin Group will begin airing exclusively on public television stations nationwide and digital platforms in January 2020.

Tom Rogan, noted political writer and commentator, is back to host the series. Rogan replaced original host John McLaughlin, who died in 2016. He is joined by longtime regular panel members Pat Buchanan, Eleanor Clift, and Clarence Page. Guest panelists will also appear on the program on a regular basis. The panel will continue to engage in lively political discourse covering current and emerging issues of the day, as well as topics of interest to voters during the current election cycle.

16. Honestly, who really wants this?

Other than a handful of nursing home residents and a few Boomers feeling nostalgic.

The days when spirited partisan debating was a rarity on TV are long gone. Besides, McLaughlin Group without McLaughlin is like Hardball without Chris Marthews.
