Conservative Talker Larry Elder Celebrates Birthday with Star on Hollywood Boulevard

Long-running talk show host gets surprise honor.

Conservative talk radio host Larry Elder will receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, on his upcoming birthday, April 27, according to the Walk of Fame’s official website

Conservative actors Dean Cain and Jon Voight, and talk show host Dennis Prager will help emcee the event. 

Variety and reported the story initially last Spring when Elder was chosen to be a recipient. At the time Elder joked, “Maybe they got me mixed up with Samuel L. Jackson.” Elder was the only nominee from the radio category elected at the time, Variety reported. 

Elder is best known for hosting his long-running radio show, “The Larry Elder Show,” which ran from 1994-2014 on KABC 790. Since December, he has been broadcasting the show online. 

Elder has hosted his own television show, “The Larry Elder Show” as well as “Moral Court.” He is the author of several best-selling conservative books like, “The 10 Things You Can’t Say in America,” “Showdown: Confronting Bias, Lies and the Special Interests That Divide America,” and “What's Race Got to Do with It?: Why It's Time to Stop the Stupidest Argument in America.” 

As a black conservative, Elder has experienced the tolerance and love the Left loves to show to people who think for themselves. During a heated exchange with Piers Morgan on his CNN show, liberals on Twitter went nuts, calling Elder all sorts of vulgar and racist names, as Newsbusters reported.
