Radio talk show host Caiden Cowger has become the youngest nationally syndicated radio host in the history of talk radio. This month, Cowger was picked up by his fourth terrestrial station affiliate WXMB – 101.5 FM in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

The Caiden Cowger Program also airs on WFSB-AM/FM (Quitman, GA), WBUC-AM (Buckhannon, WV) and several others.

“It is a great honor and also very humbling,” Cowger told The High School Conservative. “I owe everything that I have been able to accomplish to God, for putting the right people in my life, helping to make my show a success.”

“Bryan Fischer and Jeff Reed with American Family Radio have both provided me with much encouragement and support though my broadcasting career, along with my other good friends and fellow radio hosts Jayson Veley and Jimmy Zulz,” Cowger stated. “I also owe much gratitude to Brad Allen and Dale Miller of WV Radio, Patrick and Ron Dozler of WXMB-FM and Premo Mondone of the Red State Talk Radio Network for their generous support by airing our programming.”

Until this year, Ben Ferguson was recognized as being the youngest nationally syndicated radio personality in the United States, getting his start on radio at the age of 13 and becoming nationally syndicated at the age of 20.

“When I was around 7 or 8, I remember going into one of our local bookstores and picking up his book ‘It’s My America Too,'” Cowger told The High School Conservative. “I remember thinking, ‘Wow, it would really be cool to do something like that;’ About 5 years later, I began my radio career.”

“While it was Rush Limbaugh who inspired me to get involved by hosting a radio show, Ben Ferguson’s book was the small spark that lead to my interest in radio broadcasting.”

Cowger first stated hosting his radio show at the age of 12, becoming nationally syndicated at 17.

This year, Cowger was also named as being one out of thirty inspirational conservatives of 2015 under thirty-years-old.

Red Alert Politics is a conservative news and opinion website directed toward young Americans and is a division of MediaDC, which also serves as the publisher of The Weekly Standard and The Washington Examiner.

A gathering for the honorees took place on July 28th, and was attended by Campus Reform’s Caleb Bonham and Breitbart’s Matthew Boyle, among others.

December 5, 2015, will mark the five year anniversary of The Caiden Cowger Program.
