Left, Right, & Center is a weekly half-hour public radio program that provides a "civilized yet provocative antidote to the screaming talking heads that dominate political debate". The program is also distributed as a political podcast. The show's regular co-hosts are the following:
- Josh Barro, a columnist at The New York Times, represents the center, and is the moderator. Until January 2015, Matthew Miller, senior fellow at the progressive Center for American Progress represented the center as moderator.
- Rich Lowry, editor of the conservative National Review, represents the right. Until his death in 2012, Tony Blankley, editorial page editor of The Washington Times represented the right.
- Formerly, Arianna Huffington was also a regular member of the panel.
After Blankley's death, various conservative writers and pundits have appeared as guests to represent a conservative viewpoint. Conservative columnist David Frum has made numerous appearances to fill this role, and Rich Lowry from the conservative National Review is now billed as co-host on the right.
The show is recorded each Friday, produced by KCRW in Santa Monica, California by Sarah Spitz, although hosts typically contribute over ISDN telephone lines from wherever they happen to be. After covering the week's events, each host gets a short period of time to "rant" about whatever they like without fear of rebuttal.
