Levin and Hannity remain frequent contributors to each other’s programs. He is a leading conservative commentator, ranking 4th nationally among talk radio programs, with a minimum of 8.5 million total weekly listeners (Spring 2011) according to Talkers magazine.
Former Republican House Speaker John Boehner said in October 2017 that Levin was responsible for influencing other conservative media voices like Hannity and Rush Limbaugh towards the far right, saying “that right-wing guy, Levin? He went really crazy right and got a big audience, and he dragged Hannity to the dark side. He dragged Rush to the dark side.”
On February 11, 2016, Levin signed a “lifetime” (ten-year) contract extension with Westwood One, which will take his show through 2025, its 19th year.

In November 2017, Fox News announced that it had signed Levin for a weekend show titled Life, Liberty & Levin to air on Sunday nights at 10 pm Eastern beginning in February 2018. According to a pre-debut network news release, the program will explore “the fundamental values and principles undergirding American society, culture, politics, and current events, and their relevance to the nation’s future and everyday lives of citizens.”
Mark Levin Writing Career
Levin authored the 2005 book Men In Black: How The Supreme Court Is Destroying America, in which he advanced his thesis that activist judges on the Supreme Court (from all parts of the political spectrum) have “legislated from the bench”. Commentary magazine’s Dan Seligman wrote that Levin asks readers “to identify with ‘originalists’ who look to the text of the Constitution and the intent of its framers, and to reject the ‘activists’ who construe the Constitution broadly and are more concerned with getting to their own ‘desired outcomes'”. Slate magazine’s Dahlia Lithwick wrote that “no serious scholar of the court or the Constitution, on the ideological left or right, is going to waste their time engaging Levin’s arguments once they’ve read this book”.
Rescuing Sprite: A Dog Lover’s Story of Joy and Anguish is a non-fiction work written by Levin in 2007 about his experience of rescuing a dog named Sprite from a local animal shelter.
Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto was released in 2009, and became a #1 New York Times best seller for eleven of twelve weeks, as well as No. 1 on Nielsen’s Book Scan and No. 2 on Amazon.com’s list of bestselling books of 2009. The book includes discussion of a variety of issues that, according to Levin, need to be addressed in the United States. In Liberty and Tyranny Levin repudiates the use of the term “progressive” to describe “modern Liberals” and instead argues a proper term should be “Statist”. Liberty and Tyranny has sold over one million copies according to Threshold Editions, the book’s publisher. The National Review’s Andrew C. McCarthy wrote, “Levin offers not so much a defense as a plan of attack” against “America’s Leftist ascendancy”. Other reviewers critiqued the book as “analysis utterly useless in understanding more than half of the American political landscape” while charging “Levin resorts to the same old misinformation to sell his brand of conservatism”.
Ameritopia: The Unmaking of America was released in 2012. In Ameritopia, Levin discusses the origins and development of both the modern day conservative and liberal political philosophies, the latter of which he refers to as “statist”, through the works of some of the leading figures in American history. Included are commentaries on works by Plato, Sir Thomas More, Thomas Hobbes, Karl Marx, John Locke, Charles de Montesquieu and Alexis de Tocqueville. Jeffrey Lord called it “historical X-ray vision in book form”. PJ Media praised the book, “That Levin wrote this book now demonstrates not only his passion for the United States, but his awareness that he is a statesman defending natural law at a pivotal moment in human history.” On the other hand, The Atlantic’s review criticized the book’s argument that statism is based on utopianism, and a review by Professor Carlin Romano in the Chronicle of Higher Education called the book “disastrously bad from beginning to end”.

The 2013 book The Liberty Amendments: Restoring the American Republic suggests eleven new Constitutional amendments. The book debuted at #1 on The New York Times Best Seller list. Hans A. von Spakovsky of National Review called the book “required reading for conservative bloggers”. Ana Marie Cox, writing in The Guardian, said the book “contains some radical notions about a complete overhaul of the US constitution, but to debate the specifics of their merits is to ignore the larger insanity of the project” while noting “the ludicrousness of his specific ‘fixes’ and the near-impossibility of achieving them”. In the Washington Times, Tenth Amendment Center Executive Director Michael Lotfi criticized Levin’s idea as “the bullet to a loaded revolver pointed at the Constitution”. Also in the Times, Richard Rahn wrote “If ‘The Liberty Amendments’ can help foster a national debate about which corrective actions, including constitutional amendments, are needed to increase liberty and prosperity, Mr. Levin will have performed a great national service”. Hoover Institution fellow David Davenport wrote in Forbes that Levin’s book used “weak arguments”. Also in Forbes, Ralph Benko credited Levin with “notably and nobly proposing to change the rules of modern politics and governance”.
Levin authored Plunder and Deceit: Big Government’s Exploitation of Young People and the Future in 2015, and Rediscovering Americanism and the Tyranny of Progressivism in 2017.
