Nothing But Truth With Crane Durham
A POPULAR CONSERVATIVE
Crane Durham is an up and coming host of a popular conservative radio talk show called “Nothing But Truth” (radio and TV) aired on American Family Radio Network. The network has approximately 145 stations across the country and continues to expand.
He began his radio career in 1993 hosting a weekly news analysis program at “Ole Miss”. After college he worked in different areas of media until 2000 and then decided to make it a full time pursuit.
Well, that’s a fair description of the man…if you’re writing a resume! So, who is Crane Durham and why is he becoming so popular? Listeners say it’s his honest, forthright commentary which gives his show a breath of fresh air and innocence.
The show combines analysis of current events and social policy with expert guests, spiced with his own unique style of humor. Crane encourages listeners to call and air opinions on current topics. He adamantly states he isn’t about Republicans or Democrats…only conservatism. People who agree with his views, as well as those who don’t, are welcome to voice their opinions and even rude callers are treated with class and dignity.
Mr. Durham displays originality. He simply does not listen to peers in his profession. One might think that odd. But it makes sense…he doesn’t want to be a copycat or act like other conservative talk show hosts.
However, there are some who still can’t come to terms with the fact Mr. Durham has a right to respectfully disagree with the president on policy. The key word being respectfully. If nothing else, Crane demands respect be shown where due.
STRONG MILITARY SUPPORTER
As an example, Crane refers to President Obama as "My president". He advocates respect for the president although he may disagree with his policies.
Extensive use of audio and visual clips to back up controversial subjects being highlighted on either his radio or TV shows enforces their authenticity. Who can argue with statements or actions caught on camera? Either you said it, did it, or you didn't.
Describing himself, crane says, “All too human… yeah, that’s me. I voice my opinions yet I am flawed. Every day I work on becoming the man I want to be, but fall short. This has given me humility as well as an appreciation for those who make mistakes. It is not if you fall; your character is defined in the manner in which you get up. Without getting too personal, I would be remiss if I did not state that all good things in my life flow through my lord and savior Jesus Christ. I say this with the utmost respect for other belief systems (religions). If you know where I stand on issues; you will certainly understand who I am.”
Additionally, Crane is a staunch supporter of the United States military. “I believe the most under-appreciated citizens in America are those who have or are currently serving in the United States military.” he stated. “I was absolutely disgusted by the treatment of the US Military during the 90’s and believe that it’s a primary function, if not the primary function, for a government to protect its people. That protection begins and ends with the respectable treatment of the Armed forces as well as the constitutional rights of its citizens.”
Also boosting his popularity is his conviction that; actions are more powerful than words. If one advocates a healthy, honest, Christian life; then they must live it as well. Sounds like a pretty popular guy.
