Margaret Hoover, author, activist and political commentator will host a new series called Firing Line with Margaret Hoover premiering Sunday, July 22, 2018 at 5:30 p.m. on WXXI-TV.

Hoover will bring together the brightest minds and freshest voices from across the political spectrum to engage in a contest of ideas about important issues confronting our nation.

“Our mission is to renew the tradition of Firing Line for a new generation, offering a rigorous exchange of opinion with fresh voices addressing the challenges facing our democracy,” Margaret Hoover explained.

Firing Line with Margaret Hoover offers viewers an opportunity to engage in the debate about the America that we want to create for the 21st century. The show will maintain the character of the original series by William F. Buckley, providing a platform that is diligent in its commitment to a balanced exchange of opinion. The series comes at a time when meaningful discourse is needed more than ever.

In order to frame the issues and give context to the discussion, the show will be complemented by archival footage from the original Firing Line series, which broadcast more than 1,500 episodes during its memorable 33-year run. The Firing Line archival collection is housed in the Hoover Institution’s Library and Archives at Stanford University.
