Derek Hunter can thank a series of happy accidents for his current radio career.

Call WBAL host Derek Hunter an accidental radio star.

The conservative pop culture junkie had no intention of a career behind the microphone … at first. Life intervened. A podcast here, a fateful meeting with a radio producer (and future bride) there.

Now, he’s the host of “The Derek Hunter Show,”┬áheard from 1 to 3 p.m. weekdays on Baltimore’s WBAL AM 1090.

Hunter opened up about his circuitous route to radio and why he thinks conservatives won’t punish Hollywood for its incendiary bias on the latest Hollywood in Toto Podcast.

Listen to “HiT Episode 25 Derek Hunter” on Spreaker.

You can read Derek’s columns at both The Daily Caller and And check out FX’s “Feud,” starring Susan Sarandon and Jessica Lange. Derek says the acting is top-notch and certainly worth some binge time.
