Advertise on Common Sense
Wendy Bell Common Sense has been featured on Newsmax since January of 2022. Wendy Bell Common Sense is currently the 18th most popular show on Newsmax watched by 17,000 people as of September 26, 2022.
Wendy Bell, a broadcast veteran of nationally syndicated and network affiliate news, delves into topics and concerns with interviews and roundtables in her weekly show airing 4:30 p.m. ET Saturdays on Newsmax. The show also airs Sundays at 3:30 p.m. ET.
“People are hungry for common sense in this country, and that’s what this new program is about,” says Bell. “Telling the truth, having great conversations, talking about what really matters. It’s going to be outstanding.”
Newsmax CEO Chris Ruddy said, “Wendy Bell has had a remarkable career as a television journalist and radio host, and throughout it all has been an advocate of common sense and American values. We are glad to have her on the Newsmax team.”
“Wendy Bell is a 21-time Emmy Award-winning journalist whose storytelling and news anchoring on national and local television earned her four Edward R. Murrow Awards and dozens of other broadcasting accolades. She is the host of the Wendy Bell Radio Show heard nationwide weekdays from 9AM until noon.”
Bell became the main anchor and most decorated reporter at Pittsburgh’s ABC affiliate, where she worked for nearly 20 years. With more than 28 years of broadcasting experience, Wendy has covered a broad array of news stories and breaking headlines.
Wendy is a proud American who believes in traditional family values. Honesty. Loyalty. Integrity.
Newsmax, America’s fastest-growing cable news channel in more than 70 million homes, gives you the latest breaking news from Washington, New York, Hollywood and from capitals around the world – with top-rated shows featuring Sean Spicer, Rob Schmitt, Greg Kelly, Greta Van Susteren, Eric Bolling, Chris Salcedo, Wendy Bell and more.
Launched digitally two decades ago, Newsmax moved into OTT—providing content over the internet without requiring viewers to have a pay TV subscription—and most recently on cable, where the network reaches more than 50 million homes. “We were told that nobody would take us,” CEO Chris Ruddy said. “But we got on every major cable system…we got Comcast, we got DirecTV, we got Cox, we got Charter—everybody.”
Ruddy says Newsmax’s ratings performance—and its viewership across OTT and other platforms—proves that while many see the network as indistinguishable from One America News, viewers know better. “We get attacked as extremists…(but) I think the public, at the end of the day, they’re making decisions” and turning to Newsmax. “I think if we had the full (cable) penetration like CNN or Fox, people would be saying ‘wow, Newsmax is going to probably overtake CNN pretty soon.’”
For the week ending April 10, 2022, Newsmax delivered an average prime time audience of 179,000 viewers, outperforming networks like CNBC (176,000 viewers) and The Weather Channel (171,000 viewers). By comparison, Fox News Channel delivered an average audience for the week of 2.362 million viewers, followed by MSNBC with an average audience of 1.005 million viewers and CNN with 692,000.
“Our Nielsen numbers have been excellent for a new emerging cable channel,” Ruddy told me. “We’re entrenched as the fourth largest cable news channel for the past year, and if you take CNBC and Fox Business in prime time, typically we’re matching or beating their combined number in terms of total viewership per minute, which is pretty impressive considering we’re only in about 54 million cable homes, and they’re in over 70 million each.”
But Ruddy argues that the Nielsen ratings don’t tell the whole story. “We actually think our audience is close to parity with CNN, because we add the OTT households, where we’re streaming free. We believe that in any daypart it increases our audience by 50 to 100%. But Nielsen doesn’t read it yet…but overall it’s been great, the company’s profitable in every division and everything it does. We’re excited about the future.”
