Gun Talk Hunt:
Chances are you’ve heard of Gun Talk Radio, which began its conceptualization in the 1940s when Grits Gresham starting writing about hunting and guns. This love of the outdoors was passed on to his son, Tom Gresham, who would go on to be editor of several outdoor magazines and eventually join Grits as co-host of “Shooting Sports America” on ESPN. Now, Tom Gresham’s Gun Talk remains the first national radio talk show about guns and gun rights, first airing in 1995.
