The show began in June of
1980on Chicago Public Radioas "Inside Politics". It pioneered a feisty style of confrontational politicaldiscussion that has become a staple on cable TV. However, the program has mellowed over the years and now offers a more reflective style of political discussion.
The program featues three guests each week from across the political spectrum as well as listener phone participation. DuMont has strong conservative credentials but is a moderate in today's political talk circles. The program frequently originates from an affiliate location to underscore the program's prime mission of "taking America's political pulse from border-to-border and coast-to-coast."
televisionversion of the show airs Sunday night on WYCC-TV Channel 20 in Chicago.
