Currently, he is the host of a Sunday evening radio program, the John and Leah Show, which is nationally syndicated and as of 2016 is considered the 99th most influential talk shows by Talkers Magazine, and a staff columnist for Mediaite. He makes appearances on television cable news as a conservative pundit.
Beginning November 2, 2014, Ziegler rejoined Brandon to host the John and Leah Show on KHTS in Santa Clarita, California. In March 2015, the program became nationally syndicated through Envision Networks, with 24 stations nationwide doing business under the name Free Speech Broadcasting Network. The program moved its home base to KRLA in Los Angeles in August 2015. John and Leah was named as one of the 100 most influential radio talk shows in the United States by Talkers Magazine in 2016, coming in at #99. Leah Brandon left the show in November 2016.
Ziegler interviewed Sandusky from prison and debuted some of that interview live on the Today Show on March 25, 2013. Ziegler steadfastly maintains that Sandusky was a "chaste pedophile" and committed no sexual acts with his victims. Ziegler, who initially said he believed Sandusky was guilty of the crimes he was accused of, now believes that Sandusky is innocent. Ziegler's prison interview with Sandusky came under fire by the Paterno family. Paterno family attorney Wick Sollers released a statement, describing it as "transparently self-serving and yet another insult to the victims and anyone who cares about the truth in this tragic story"
In June 2009, Ziegler began a show on Los Angeles news/talk radio station KGIL 1260 AM, which ran from 11 AM until 1 PM. weekdays.
Shortly after the 2008 U.S. presidential election, Ziegler announced that a documentary titled Media Malpractice: How Obama Got Elected was in production (the full title was later changed to Media Malpractice: How Obama Got Elected And Palin Was Targeted). The film claims that a liberal bias in the media was responsible for Barack Obama being elected president. The film was originally released live on the Today Show on February 23, 2009.
After leaving his talk show on KFI AM 640, Ziegler was involved in two documentary film projects. In August 2008, John Ziegler and producer David Bossie of Citizens United premiered a documentary co-produced, written and directed by Ziegler entitled Blocking The Path to 9/11, which revisits the political controversy about the ABC docudrama miniseries The Path to 9/11. Through interviews with the Path to 9/11 filmmakers and others, news clips about the controversy, and footage from the miniseries, the documentary makes the claim that Disney/ABC ultimately shelved plans to release a DVD of the miniseries as a result of pressure from the political left, specifically the Clintons. As noted in the documentary, Disney/ABC denies this and claims the move was merely a business decision. But commission member Richard Ben-Veniste said that the miniseries misrepresented facts presented in the 9/11 Commission report. Two FBI agents also criticized the film's accuracy. Thomas E. Nicoletti was hired by the filmmakers as a consultant, but quit, saying "There were so many inaccuracies...I'm well aware of what's dramatic license and what's historical inaccuracy," Nicoletti said. "And this had a lot of historical inaccuracy.'"
Ziegler was suspended for two days in 2006 following an on-air confrontation with John Kobylt of KFI's John and Ken Show. On November 13, 2007, the day after he announced his departure from KFI, Ziegler broadcast his last show. He told a reporter that the decision was due to mental and physical exhaustion, and to his work on a documentary.
Ziegler was the focus of David Foster Wallace's cover story in the April 2005 Atlantic Monthly, which examined the American talk radio industry through the lens of The John Ziegler Show. Ziegler viewed the article as "a partial hit piece;" in response to the article, he wrote an obituary of Wallace following his death in 2008, stating that Wallace "was an overrated writer in life. His suicide should not be used to elevate him even further beyond what he deserved, in death."
Ziegler's most prominent work in radio has been as the evening (7-10 PM) host of a radio talk show called The John Ziegler Show on KFI AM 640 in Los Angeles, California, from January 12, 2004, until November 13, 2007. Talkers Magazine listed John Ziegler as number 54 on their "Heavy Hundred" list of the most important U.S. radio talk show hosts in 2007.
On January 12, 2004, Ziegler began work at KFI as a late evening host. As both WHAS and KFI are owned by Clear Channel, this placed him in the unusual situation of having been fired and re-hired by the same company within a short time frame. He moved to the 7-10 p.m. slot on February 21, 2005. In November 2007, he left KFI.
In 2003, while still employed by WHAS, he joined forces with Louisville Democrat and current 3rd district Congressional Representative John Yarmuth to debate political issues on the weekly WAVE program Yarmuth & Ziegler, with Yarmuth taking the progressive side and Ziegler the conservative side. This gig lasted through November of that year. In 2006, Ziegler supported the Yarmuth election campaign for Kentucky's 3rd congressional district, both financially and as a political adviser. Yarmuth won the election to Congress, defeating his incumbent Republican opponent Anne Northup.
In 2002, wanting to return to radio, Ziegler was hired by Louisville, Kentucky, radio station WHAS. Once again, his tenure did not last long, as during a Ask John Anything segment, he discussed Darcie Divita, a former LA Lakers cheerleader and WDRB morning television host with whom Ziegler had a relationship until Divita broke up with him.
After graduating from college, Ziegler became a sportscaster, moving his way up to a full-time position at WTOV in Ohio. He left the position to write a book about high school football in Steubenville, Ohio, called Dynasty of the Crossroads. After the book, he took a position as a sportscaster at WRAZ in Raleigh, North Carolina, but was fired in 1995 after making what he describes as an "incredibly tame" joke about his belief that O.J. Simpson was guilty.
Ziegler was born in a U.S. Army post in Heidelberg, Germany, and grew up as the eldest son of a financial manager in the small village of Washington Crossing, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. He was a standout golfer in high school, being named High School Golfer of the Year by the Bucks County Courier Times. In 1985, Ziegler graduated from the Catholic Holy Ghost Preparatory School located in Bensalem, Pennsylvania. He then attended Georgetown University, graduating in 1989 with a degree in Government and a minor in Theology and Philosophy. While attending Georgetown, he lettered in golf for three years.
