     ➢ THE FEDERAL FISCAL CRISIS: “Napkin Magic --- How To Balance The Budget In 15 Minutes”

Aaron uses his expertise on the Federal Budget and his extensive programming with former U.S. Senator Alan Simpson, former White House Chief of Staff Erskine Bowles (Co-Chairs of the National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform, known as “the Simpson-Bowles Commission”), along with an extensive range of economic experts to illustrate how easy it is to balance the Federal Budget while simultaneously explaining why it is so difficult to accomplish the very same objective in Washington. Video clips include Simpson and Bowles with Aaron as well as a range of nationally-recognized economic experts. An extensive, highly interactive Q & A session is included.

     THE AMERICAN CIVILITY INITIATIVE: "Transforming Washington One Meal At A Time”

Everyone agrees and all the scientific evidence proves Washington, DC, and the citizens of the United States of America are not united. In fact, the U.S. House of Representatives, the U.S. Senate, and the American people are more divided than ever before in modern times. This polarization has resulted in a political process which has failed to address the nation’s most significant challenges. In this speech, Aaron explains how one element of transforming politics is the need for people to simply get to know each other as human beings. This theme is applicable to many situations in business, society, and other aspects of life. He begins with a story about his initial experience observing the impact of breaking bread while engaged in a heated debate at Princeton University and explains how the American Civility Initiative will be designed to change the destructive dynamics of DC. With the participation of both current and past members of the Senate, House, and Administration, Aaron gives an insider view of how the American Civility Initiative could represent the path for significant change in in the nation.

     ➢ THE WORLD OF ENERGY: “Why Everyone Hates Energy Companies… But Shouldn’t”

Aaron, as host and moderator of “The Energy Roundtable” ( --- a subset of “The Aaron Harber Show” consisting of more energy-related programming than any other show in the history of broadcast television --- explains why energy companies are despised by the public yet should be appreciated for all they do. Aaron uses the Energy Industry as an example of how a business sector with great stories and assets could engender much greater goodwill by deploying effective strategies and explains why it has failed in that mission. An extensive, highly interactive Q & A session is included.

     ➢ INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS: “The Third Way --- How America Can Be Restored Abroad”

With Department of Defense , State Department, Veterans Affairs Department, Energy Department (for DOD-related missions), and Homeland Security budgets approaching $1 trillion annually, the United States spends almost as much on defense as the rest of the world’s 195 nations combined yet is despised in many countries. Aaron --- a graduate of Princeton University’s Woodrow Wilson School of Public & International Affairs --- examines the world’s hot-spots and illustrates how other approaches by the United States could save taxpayer money, generate new revenue, be far more effective, and promote a positive image for America while simultaneously supporting U.S. business activity globally. An extensive, highly interactive Q & A session also is included.

     ➢ TELEVISION & THE MEDIA: “Television’s Maverick: Principles Of Why They Come To Me”

Aaron has been known for getting Top Tier guests --- prominent people who often rarely appear at length on any program. Aaron reveals his strategies for getting guests such as President Clinton, General David Petraeus, Deepak Chopra, Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, General Colin Powell, Queen Noor of Jordan, film director James Cameron, Secretary of State and Treasury Secretary James Baker, actor Kevin Costner, FBI Director Robert Mueller, film director Oliver Stone. He explains strategies others can use to maximize their own career success. Aided by clips of his most famous guests, Aaron discloses a story about each one which few people have heard and uses it to illustrate easily transferable principles of success. An extensive, highly interactive Q & A session is included.

     ➢ THE CHALLENGES OF LEADERSHIP: “Born or Learned Leadership --- Secrets Of Successful Leaders”

Using a series of video clips in which some of his most prominent guests talk about their views on leadership, what they believe are the components of successful leadership, and who they respect as great leaders, Aaron gives a “guided tour” of highlights and discusses whether or not leaders are “born” and how leadership skills and traits (such as charisma) can or cannot be acquired. Video clips are selected from Aaron’s guests such as General Colin Powell, activist Ralph Nader, CIA Director and General David Petraeus, Director Oliver Stone, Secretary of State and Treasury Secretary James Baker, FBI Director Robert Mueller, publisher Steve Forbes, Mayor Michael Hancock, and Senator Alan Simpson, among many others.An extensive, highly interactive Q & A session is included.

It is not a single factor or attribute that differentiates Aaron; rather, it is the combination of factors which makes him unique. That is, while other hosts may have some of the same experiences, accomplishments, abilities or traits, no one else has the combination which Aaron has. Here are several examples of these qualities.

  1. Aaron has the ability to discuss complex subjects in a manner which is intelligible to most viewers and listeners --- and his approach resonates with them.

  2. Aaron’s educational background --- with degrees from Princeton University (concentrating in Economics at the Woodrow Wilson School of Public & International Affairs) and Harvard University (a Masters in Public Administration with a focus on Ethics in Business, Politics, and Government at the John F. Kennedy School of Government) --- gives him considerable academic credentials.

  3. Specifically, Aaron’s educational background in economics, politics, and international affairs adds depth and dimensions to his work most television hosts and moderators do not have.

  4. Aaron’s extensive Private Sector experience gives him an insider’s perspective on how the Free Market succeeds and fails. He understands what works and what doesn’t work based on his own experience in terms of both successes and failures managing a range of businesses (which ultimately gave him a high level of personal financial success).

  5. Aaron’s Private Sector experience gives his the advantage of understanding how both small and large companies work (having had clients as small as one-person start-ups to large companies such as Bank of America, Rockwell International, Motorola, Hughes Aircraft, and Sprint).

  6. Aaron’s firsthand experience working with government entities (e.g., the U.S. Department of Energy, the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Office of Telecommunications, the Energy Information Administration, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, the Colorado Department of Natural Resources) gives him an insider’s understanding of what government can and cannot do well.

  7. Aaron’s firsthand experience with the United States Tax Code, having created the Colorado Accounting & Tax Service and having worked with hundreds of clients (and successfully representing some before the Internal Revenue Service), gives him an understanding of how the tax system works and what reforms are needed to address wastefulness and inefficiency.

  8. Aaron’s extensive work with non-profit and charitable organizations (including serving as president or chairman of a number of them --- ranging from arts organizations to government agencies to environmental groups to educational institutions) gives him an understanding of how these organizations function, help others, and can be more efficient and effective so they can do even more.

  9. Aaron’s Political experience, including having won two statewide Electoral College elections and a statewide party officer race as well as his election three times as a Presidential Delegate and his election to a national Presidential Credentials Committee combine to give him an insider’s view of the world of politics.

  10. Aaron’s comprehensive understanding of the Media and his expertise in the Media (especially television, which built on his prior experience as a nationally-recognized Talk Radio host) position him well for accomplishing substantive goals.

  11. Aaron in-depth understanding of specific topics --- e.g., Economics (including the U.S. Fiscal Crisis), Politics, Energy, Leadership, Media, Education, Science, Medicine, Health Care, et cetera --- allows him to engage in discussions at levels avoided by many others. This offers viewers a different perspective on issues.

  12. The fact Aaron’s programming always has been nonpartisan and is seen as objective positions him as a person viewers across the political can trust. That is sorely lacking today and separates Aaron from most of today’s television host pack.

  13. Aaron’s access to top tier guests rivals that of most national programs.

  14. Aaron’s approach to get the best from each of his guests, rather than attempt to seek “gotcha” moments also makes him different from the approach many programs use.

  15. The show’s long-form format gives guests the opportunity to be substantive and counters the sound-bite approach many programs deploy today.

  16. Aaron has a proven track record of accomplishment and a history of performance --- both on and off the air.

  17. Aaron’s experience and knowledge of the history of the past few decades gives him a perspective which is based in fact. Being able to make historical references brings a dimension of fact to discussions which often are held in a historical and factual vacuum today --- where opposing sides all too often have their own versions of “the facts.” Aaron helps bring agreement on key facts so discussions are productive.

  18. American leaders see Aaron as providing value to the country, as illustrated by the following quote from former U.S. Senator Alan Simpson, the Co-Chair of the National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and reform, when talking about “The Great Economics Debate” organized by USA Talk Network and hosted by Aaron. Senator Simpson explained, “This special media event gives Americans the clear opportunity to examine all the facts for themselves.  Our future depends on moving away from biased and distorted information and towards this nonpartisan, fact-based model created so carefully by Aaron Harber. I earnestly hope many folks will take advantage of this program and either attend or view it.  It’s a powerful force in helping us to build a strong economic future together.”

Aaron Harber hosts “The Aaron Harber Show TM” ( and and “The Aaron Harber Show: Colorado Now TM” ( --- seen on KCDO-TV (K3 Colorado --- Channel 3), COMCAST Entertainment Television (CET), KPXC-TV (ION Television. ION Media Networks), other cable and satellite channels, and the Web. Beginning next year, the program will be available to all 60 million COMCAST customers via its 24/7 free Video on Demand service. The program also will be available from other channels, networks, systems, and broadcasters so up to 250 million people will have access to it.

Aaron’s career in broadcasting began in 1992 when he served as the host of the "The WatchDog" -- a political issues, consumer affairs, and citizens' rights program on the Talk of the Rockies Network. In 1994, he became host of “Against The Rush” -- a humorous but cogent response to Rush Limbaugh. The show was produced by USA Talk Network and broadcast on 51 stations by the Talk America Radio Network. Aaron gained national recognition when he was sued frivolously for $20 million by Limbaugh, et al, for using the word “Rush” in the title of his show. With broad-based support across the entire political spectrum, Aaron won the First Amendment case in Federal Court when Limbaugh was forced to dismiss his own case.

The talk inustry’s leading publication -- “TALKERS MAGAZINE” -- selected Aaron out of 5,000 hosts across the country as one of America’s 100 “Most Important Talk Show Hosts In 1997" (along with such luminaries as Don Imus, Gordon Liddy, Rush Limbaugh, Laura Schlesinger, Howard Stern, and Bruce Williams).  In 1997, he moved from Talk Radio exclusively into the television arena, beginning as a guest host, then becoming a co-host two years later, and eventually having his own program (titled “Spontaneous Combustion”) on Public Television.

From 2002 to 2009, Aaron served as the host of “The Aaron Harber Show” on KBDI-TV Channel 12 (Colorado Public Television)-- a meticulous look at the issues of the day --- and its “Capitol Report” special editions. He also has developed the concept for “Blind Justice” --- a critical examination of America’s Legal System --- which is expected to be in development for some time due to his other commitments. From 1998 to 2009, Aaron served as the on-camera Political Analyst for CW2 of the CW Network (previously Tribune Broadcasting station KWGN/WB2 – including when it was part of the Warner Brothers Network).

Aaron left Colorado Public Television in 2009 after receiving an offer to have his program originate from commercial station KCDO-TV (K3 Colorado Channel 3) which also allowed his programs to be carried on a variety of channels, stations, and networks.
