In Memory

Campbell received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Mercyhurst College. Formerly a math teacher, Campbell began his career in radio as a talk show caller. In an interview, he said that he began listening to Rush Limbaugh during the 1991 Gulf War, but remained to listen to the local host who followed, who espoused a liberal point of view. When no one called in to challenge the host, Campbell said he called in to debate him. A couple of competing radio station managers, impressed with Campbell's ability to debate the host extemporaneously, offered him a try-out as a result.[2]

From June 2004 to April 2008, Campbell was host of The Pat Campbell Show at WFLA 540 AM in Orlando, Florida. One of Campbell's interviews made the national spotlight when, in 2005, he interviewed Rep. Tom Tancredo, who suggested that Mecca should be bombed if the U.S. was attacked with nuclear weapons.[3] Campbell was also a regular Friday guest of Tucker Carlson while the host was on MSNBC; he was also a frequent guest of television host Rita Cosby.

In 2006, 2007, 2009, 2010 and 2011 he was named one of Talkers Magazine's 250 most influential talk show hosts.

Allan Dempsey To Retire      10-5-21
Salem Media Group, Inc. announced that long-time radio personality Allan Dempsey is hanging up the headphones and moving into a new season of his life. After 30 years at Orlando’s WTLN-AM 990/FM 101.5, Allan said, “Growing up in the Baltimore area, all I wanted to do was play in my band and to be on the radio. Now after much prayer and contemplation, the time is right to move on. It will give me the opportunity to have more ‘one-on-one’ deep conversations with God like I used to, and do a bit of traveling around the country.”
