Former U.S. Congressional Candidate Howard Houchen Set To Host Political Talk Show
(Paris, Texas) 20 August 2010 – As the lights started go out on Howard Houchen's bid for U.S. Congress the lights were coming up on the set of Mr. Houchen's new conservative political television show, The Road To Liberty. Venture Studios producer James Wyatt approached Mr. Houchen late in his campaign for Oklahoma's 2nd District Congressional seat about the idea of hosting a conservative political talk show. Wyatt said, "I saw Howard had a unique quality that resonated with audiences on the campaign trail. His style and personality was something that we at Venture felt would translate very well to television."
The thirty minute program, The Road To Liberty, is currently slated for thirteen episodes which has already begun filming at the Venture Studio's facility. Guests from across the country will be featured each week discussing the topics of primary interest to conservative Americans. The show will be set apart from other programs of this type by Mr. Houchen's demonstrated ability to relate the topics to everyday life and how government overstepping the bounds of our Founders' intent is quickly taking this country off the intended path desired by the majority of Americans.
Mr. Houchen stated, "I'm really excited about the opportunity to continue reaching out to hard-working American citizens about the principles of constitutional conservatism, the proper role of government, and the absolute necessity of ensuring We, the people, check and roll back the powers of the political-class over the working-class". Houchen went on to say; "We are all Americans, it is our duty to protect and defend the rule book by which we are to govern ourselves...the U.S. Constitution. To do anything less will lead to the demise of the greatest nation God ever blessed."
Plans for the program include an initial launch in North Texas in several markets served by various cable providers. Negotiations will be ongoing during production for broadcast rights in Texas and Oklahoma markets and with satellite program providers for distribution to over 76,000,000 homes across the U.S. Viewers will also be able to watch and interact with the program at the website www.newroadtoliberty.com.
During the primary campaign, numerous people remarked to me that Houchen was more suited for a talk show than he was for political office. It looks like those speculations came true.
