Douglas Urbanski

Many of you talk radio fans are becoming acquainted with my friend Douglas Urbanski. You first got to know him when he filled in for me at Tammy Radio, where, of course, he did a stellar job. Now he is the Talk Radio Network go-to guy when it comes to guest hosting for all the TRN hosts, including Rusty Humphries, Jerry Doyle and Michael Savage.

Doug is one of those rare birds in Hollywood–he’s a conservative. Spero News has done a terrific profile of Doug which I think will give you all a better idea of who Doug is, what matters to him, and what it means to be a conservative in the entertainment industry. He also speaks about the impact of film on culture, and the responsbility a creative conservative Christian faces when it comes to his work.

Whirling upstream in Hollywood: Douglas Urbanski

Douglas Urbanski takes his Catholicism orthodox, his politics conservative, and his road less traveled. When he’s not cutting deals in his office in the funky Melrose district of L.A., the movie producer, theatre impresario and raconteur assists daily at the altar of St. Victor’s church, located off Sunset Boulevard in the marrow of West Hollywood.

Like a determined salmon whirling upstream against the prevailing river, Urbanski, 47, brings a decidedly spiritual dimension to a notably secular business. Any daily communicant who treads the trenches of crass commercialism must be on good terms with paradox. His movie projects often explore the darker, seamier side of life, while showcasing the human capacity for hope.

Read the whole article, it’s fascinating stuff. And good news here: if you haven’t heard Doug on the radio yet, you will have a few chances to catch him in the days to come as he fills in for a couple of different TRN hosts.

He is filling in for both Jerry Doyle and Rusty Humphries today and tomorrow, Saturday. Finally, he’ll cover for Rusty Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Check the TRN website for more info about the on air schedule, and you can also hear the web stream for the show, but there’s a tiny charge for that.
