Spencer Kobren's The Bald Truth

Spencer Kobren's The Bald Truth

Spencer Kobren’s weekly on air support group has been nationally syndicated for over twelve years and has developed cult-like status among men ages 18 to 35 and beyond seeking advice on “Sex, Life and Hair Loss.” The Washington Post proclaims that The Bald Truth is Kobren’s “Pulpit of the airwaves.” A new genre of hip talk radio. New York Post columnist and author, Girsh Kuntzman, writes, “The tone of The Bald Truth is pure therapy,” and the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review declares “Spencer Kobren’s nationally syndicated show “The Bald Truth” has a dedicated listenership that would have Rush Limbaugh pulling his hair out in envy.”
