Darren Weeks began his activism during his teenage years, picketing abortion clinics, and focusing on other social issues. From his earliest years, he had an interest in radio and dabbled in the industry, producing radio shows on various stations in large and small markets when he was a teenager and in his early 20s. He worked at a small AM station before attending the Specs Howard School of Media Arts in Southfield, Michigan, graduating in May 1991.
Over the years, he has been employed at a number of network-affiliated TV stations as well as the college of communications, arts and sciences at a major university. Much of his career was focused on the technical production of local television news broadcasts, working closely with journalists in studio and in newsrooms. It was during this time that he obtained a great deal of insight into the personalities and education (or lack thereof) of the many people in front of the cameras. It was also during his employment at one of these stations that he discovered patriot radio on the satellite. That proved to be a discovery that would forever change his life.
Weeks currently hosts Govern America every Saturday from 11AM to 2PM Eastern Time. Listen live here.
