The Bald Truth
The Bald Truth is a weekly talk radio show hosted by Spencer Kobren, founder and president of the American Hair Loss Association. The show is two hours long and airs every Sunday night at 5PM PT/8PM ET from the Westwood One studios in Los Angeles, California. Host Kobren is also a best-selling author, having published the books The Bald Truth: The First Complete Guide to Preventing and Treating Hair Loss, and The Truth About Women's Hair Loss.
The show itself has been on the air for more than ten years and nationally syndicated for eight. The show originally started as a half hour show (less than 20 minutes minus commercials) on Saturday nights on New York City's 77 WABC, and has since broadcast on other heritage stations such as 710 WOR in New York City and KLSX in Los Angeles.
Unlike many radio talk shows that focus on a specific subject or human ailment, The Bald Truth does not try to sell any particular products on the air. The author does not even promote his books, except for the occasional mention in passing when introducing himself to new listeners. The subject matter of the show does not always stick to hair loss, as much is talked about regarding men's lifestyle and sex life.
The Bald Truth is currently heard in the United States on XM Radio's Extreme Talk channel 152, a service of Clear Channel Communications, every Sunday night from 8 PM to 10 PM Eastern. The show is produced by the Andrew Zarian and the GFQ network and streamed on Stickam every week at their profile page. The show does not have a podcast.
Spencer Kobren also produced a show for ex-affiliate WJFK-FM titled Highway Justice.
