Allen West launching online show

Former Rep. Allen West’s next move will be to a new online show.

“Next Generation” will aim to “shine a spotlight on the challenges facing young Americans,” the fiery conservative former lawmaker said Tuesday in an introductory video.

"I'm Allen West and this is Next Generation,” he said in a clip posted on the show’s website. “We’ll shine a spotlight on the challenges facing young Americans, whether it be out-of-control spending, crushing debt or unacceptable levels of unemployment. These issues threaten the opportunities of the next generation, our nation’s collective future.”

The program is part of the conservative PJ Media outlet. West will serve as director of Next Generation’s programming, he said in a statement. The show will offer videos, talk shows, newsletters and events across the country, according to the introductory video. The first broadcast is expected to air Feb. 4.

“We don’t want the American Dream to fall by the wayside,” West said in the video. “We want to leave things better for those that come after us. That’s why we’re standing up for the next generation.”

Michelle Fields, formerly of the conservative Daily Caller, is slated to serve as a correspondent, and John Phillips, a talk radio host out of Los Angeles, will also be involved with the project, according to a release from PJ Media.

Membership packages range from $5 a month or $40 a year, to $30 a month or $170 a year, the website says.

West discussed his move to Next Generation in an interview with Fox News’s Greta Van Susteren on Tuesday night.

“The key thing that we’re going to talk about, we’re going to look at the news, the current news through the lens of young Americans, and we’re going to start to stand up for that next generation,” West said on “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren. “We want to be able to engage, you know, the grandparents, the parents, the children and the grandchildren.”

Going forward, he said, the initiative’s focus will turn to legislation and policy.

“I have a platform to talk about that which is great about America, how the previous generation always wants to make it better for the next generation,” he said.

170 too much.

Yep, the pricing structure will confuse people. They’d get far more response with one lower price, especially at the beginning, and it’s not clear what one would get for the higher prices. Few will pay $100 to $170 per year for a website.
