Chances are you’ve heard of Dr. Drew Pinsky, board certified addiction medicine specialist, either through his popular late night radio program Loveline, or recent TV hit show, Celebrity Rehab. What you may not know is that in addition to the two programs, Dr. Drew also has another radio show on KGIL 1260 AM. Monday through Friday, from 11 am -1 pm, Dr. Drew opens up the phone lines and explores broader health topics, from his vexation with medical insurance companies to rebuilding lives and relationships following addiction. In his daytime radio show, Dr. Drew’s no nonsense, to the point discourse illuminates listeners and provides them with a better self and social consciousness.

Recently, LAist sat down with Dr. Drew before his KGIL radio show to discuss mental health, addiction and STD's.
