History[edit]

In May 2006, Salem Communications acquired Townhall.com and relaunched the site with the addition of podcasts of Salem's network and local talk shows, blogs run by Salem talk show hosts and the ability for any user to set up a blog on the Townhall.com network.[citation needed]

In January 2008, TownHall.com launched Townhall Magazine, a monthly conservative news magazine. In addition to exclusive content for the magazine, Townhall Magazine carries contributions from Townhall.com readers.[1]

In February, 2011 TownHall.com re-launched TownhallFinance.com, a daily financial and investment site dedicated to conservative financial commentary. The site is edited by John Ransom, who also writes a daily column on Washington and Wall Street. Additionally the site carries financial commentary from CNBC's Larry Kudlow, Fox Business Network analyst Charles Payne and Cato Institute economist Daniel J. Mitchell.
