Charles Adler (born August 25, 1954) is a Hungarian-born Canadian broadcaster who, when he was a child, was smuggled in a backpack out of Hungary by his father during the Hungarian Revolution in 1956.[1] Charles grew up in Montreal, where he started his broadcast career while attending McGill University.[citation needed] After a stint at Radio McGill, Charles became a producer at CKGM (AM) in Montreal in the summer of 1973. From there his love affair with radio grew. He first turned on a professional microphone in the winter of 1974, when he hosted a weeknight rock show at CKXL in Calgary. Within the year he was back in Montreal working at CJAD (AM). Fifteen years later he was back in Calgary, launching a talk show called Hot Talk. In 1996 he launched a television show, Adler on Line, based in Boston and a year later Adler received an Emmy Award for Best Host in New England. 1996 saw him returning to Canada to host the Charles Adler Show on CFRB (AM). Two years later he was back in Western Canada, hosting Adler on Line on CJOB-Winnipeg. In 2004 Corus Radio launched Adler as a national host. Adler Online airs on 14 radio stations. In 2001 Adler was the debut host on Global Sunday, a national Sunday night show. In the U.S. he has substituted on occasion for Sean Hannity on Fox News Channel's Hannity and Colmes. Adler is also a weekly guest on CHCH-TV's Live at 5:30 pm with Mark and Donna, and contributes frequently as a pundit on CTV's Canada AM and Powerplay.

In 2011, he debuted as host of a new daily news series on the Sun News Network.
