He described the McHenry Tea Partyer, who lost a bid for a second term in November to Democrat Tammy Duckworth of Hoffman Estates, as "an outspoken defender of freedom" who "brings a unique perspective to the national conversation as our country searches for answers during these challenging times."

In an interview last week about his new show, Walsh told the Daily Herald that he plans to use the radio program to "grow a movement of people who are prepared to tell their government, 'I want to grow up and I want to be free.'"

"I'm going to use my voice on the radio just like I do in town halls around the state, to really be a strong advocate for freedom," Walsh said.

Walsh says that the radio show will not affect plans for a future bid.

WIND is owned and operated by Salem Communications Corp. and is based in Elk Grove Village.
