Fredericks, approaching his fifth year of broadcasting in Virginia, calls his show “Common Sense for The Commonwealth” and features top-tier interviews and analysis with statewide and national political officials on a daily basis. Nearly all of the 2016 GOP Presidential candidates have appeared on his show. Although a conservative, Fredericks is popular with listeners across the ideological spectrum.

“John is unique in his ability as a radio talk show host to attract the nation’s top political movers and shakers on both sides of the aisle, and has gained a national reputation for broadcast fairness, insightful analysis and hard-hitting reporting,” said Henry Hoot, Regional Vice President for Chesapeake Broadcasting Company, Fredericks’ flagship. “His political predictions are uncanny and his insightful analysis is nationally recognized. John has amassed a great audience and has gained significant influence in Virginia.”

U.S. Rep. Rob Wittman was first elected to Congress in December, 2007.

In 2005 Wittman won a seat to the Virginia House of Delegates, where he served until he won his 2007 Congressional race.

Wittman serves on the House Armed Services Committee and the Committee on Natural Resources, where he’s earned a reputation as a defense expert and a champion of the Chesapeake Bay.
