The eighteenth hour of the 25th anniversary of viewer calls focused on the year 1997 and on the influence of talk radio in American politics. Guests talked about the rise in popularity of the talk radio format, the popularity and value of call-in programming, differences between radio and television audiences, and political events as filtered through the two types of media. They also responded to questions and comments from viewers. 

An interview with 25th anniversary essay contest finalist Stephanie Clemens of State College, Pa., as well as clips from prior programming were aired. 

The program was a part of a 25-hour call-in marathon commemorating 25 years of viewer calls that began with television’s first-ever, regularly scheduled, national viewer call-in program on October 7, 1980, when the 19-month-old network televised a live viewer call-in program from the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. close
