Mike Rosen

Michael "Mike" Rosen (born December 5, 1944)[1] is an American radio personality and political commentator. He is the host of The Mike Rosen Show on talk radio station 850 KOA in Denver, Colorado,[2] as well as a weekly opinion columnist for The Denver Post[3] and previously a weekly opinion columnist for the Rocky Mountain News.[4] Rosen has described himself as an "advocate for generally right-center, mainstream conservative ideas."[5]

The Mike Rosen Show

Mike Rosen is a self-described conservative[5] political commentator and longtime host of The Mike Rosen Show, a political talk radio show on 850 KOA, broadcasting out of Denver, Colorado, where he holds the weekday 9 a.m.-12 p.m. time slot.[2]

Rosen has filled in for Rush Limbaugh on The Rush Limbaugh Show on February 24 and 25, 2005.[6]

The Governor of Colorado[7][8] and the Mayor of Denver come on as guests to The Mike Rosen Show on a monthly basis to discuss current issues and to answer listeners' questions. Other prominent guests to have come on The Mike Rosen Show include John McCain[9] and Condoleezza Rice.[10]

Mike Rosen has appeared on the Talkers Magazine "Heavy Hundred" list of the most important U.S. radio talk show hosts. In 2009 Rosen appeared as number 82 on the list[11] and in 2010 as number 86.[12]

Newspaper columns and other commentary

Starting March 6, 2009, Rosen writes a weekly column for The Denver Post.[3] Prior to moving to The Denver Post, Rosen wrote a weekly column for the Rocky Mountain News until that newspaper's final issue in February 2009.[4]

He is also contributing political commentary to other outlets, including RealClearPolitics.[13]

Rosen wrote a May 31, 2012 column for The Denver Post, under the headline "Mike Coffman was right about Obama in the first place," strongly agreeing with a speech given by Mike Coffman. In that speech, Coffman questioned the birth certificate of President Barack Obama and asserted that Obama was not loyal to the United States.[14] Rosen dismissed Coffman's later apology [15] as a "pragmatic" election-year maneuver.[16]


Rosen was born in Brooklyn, New York, on December 5, 1944.[1] He grew up in New York and has lived in Colorado for more than 30 years.[4] He earned an MBA degree from the University of Denver and has worked as a corporate finance executive at Samsonite and Beatrice Foods.[4] A veteran of the U.S. Army, Rosen served as Special Assistant for Financial Management to the Assistant Secretary of the Navy at The Pentagon.[4] He is divorced and has two grown children.[17]

On February 2, 2009 it was reported that Rosen had lost a "seven-figure sum" of his retirement savings from investing with Agile Group, a Boulder, Colorado investment firm that Rosen had run ads for on the air, and that unknown to Rosen at the time was acting as a feeder fund for Bernard Madoff.[18] Rosen devoted the first full hour of his February 3, 2009 radio show to this topic.[19]
