Bio:

Ludlow Porch is a talkradio pioneer. He was a vital part of the first all-talk radio station in the South as a Ringmaster on WRNG Atlanta. He later helped transform legendary AM powerhouse WSB Atlanta from a stagnant music format into a talkradio giant.

The FunSeekers Radio Network kicked off on New Year's Day in 1991. Ludlow was then able to deliver his unique program to a wider, more diverse audience across a select group of radio affiliates who recognized that great talkradio is harder to find these days. Most talk programs feature political opinions that reflect half of the populace, while Ludlow centers in on the feelgood aspects of life in the United States and especially, The South.

Ludlow continues to spread his good cheer to the masses each weekday via great radio stations in the southeastern United States as well as on the world wide web. He frequently entertains conventions and other public gatherings with well prepared speeches that leave folks laughing and relieved to know that good humor is still alive and thriving.

Ludlow was honored as the 2007 Inductee into the Georgia Radio Hall of Fame.

“Your talk at our company-wide sales meeting last week was superb! Your wit and humor delighted everyone and certainly got the meeting off to a good start. You put everyone in such a good mood — they maintained it throughout the day! No small task indeed! You are a professional and fantastic talent! We are looking forward to having you back soon.”
— V.P., Director of Marketing

“They say Ludlow Porch is the South’s answer to Will Rogers. I say, Ludlow Porch is the answer to a meeting planner’s dream! Ludlow, your performance before our group at Hilton Head was superb. I circulated among the audience to check reaction. It was not an uncommon sight to see tears in their eyes from laughing so hard. Rest assured that I will call on you and will recommend you to anybody that wants some first class entertainment.”
— Executive Vice President
Building Materials Merchants’ Association of Georgia, Inc.

“Words cannot express my feelings for your presentation at our convention. You were a delight, and the audience reaction can say more than I could ever put into words. I would be delighted to recommend you at any time to address any group looking for outstanding entertainment and the unusual.”
— Executive Vice President
Electric Supply, Inc.

“Mere words, Ludlow, cannot express the feelings and thank yous we owe you. I have already been told by many that our meeting was, by far, the very best ever, and YOU are directly responsible. The tone and tempo for the entire weekend were set by your keynote address
during our opening session. I have been ‘instructed’ by many to have you again at our very
next meeting. To that end, I will be back in touch. In the interim, again, thank you.”
— Chairman, Georgia District North
Civitan International
