Harris has become a repeat guest on the I-95 Morning Show and we caught up with him again on Thursday (6/7/23). His guest appearance came just days after the David Grusch story broke.

Grusch is an Air Force veteran who had the highest clearance levels in the U.S Intelligence community and served on the UAP Task Force. Grusch claims the Unites States government has suppressed evidence of extraterrestrial space craft and entities for decades.

Grusch told News Nation:

We’re definitely not alone. The data points, quite empirically that we’re not alone.


Well, naturally, when you recover something that’s either landed or crashed. Sometimes you encounter dead pilots and believe it or not, as fantastical as that sounds, it’s true.

We asked Harris about this, and this was his reply:

"Well, a couple of our guys MJ Banais and Tim McMillan are working with The Debrief and tied closely to that site. It is a science website, the reporting is out there now. This idea that defense contractors have, let me just read a little bit of it, have recovered fragments of exotic origin, non-human intelligence whether extraterrestrial or unknown origin. Oh really? Is that what we're saying now? Is that what we're doing?

So, the idea that the government is hiding, potentially hiding alien technology, now you know the world of journalism that I come from there's a deep dive that has to happen, all the sourcing needs to checkout, the corroboration needs to be there but I know the guys that I work with are really smart, they're not biased, they're not putting their thumb on the scale in any particular direction. So, I'm prone to give it a lot of credibility as I continue to do what I do on the show which is being skeptical." 

As for the deep dive on David Grusch, it's well underway. News Nation is saying that his background checks out, stating they've "confirmed David Grusch's credentials and resume." 

Tony Harris was made available to us by the History Channel as he's out promoting the network's hit series: "The Proof is Out There." The series airs Fridays at 10 pm EST on traditional cable and streams wherever History properties are made available. The new season begins Friday, June 9th.

Ridgefield Playhouse Exec Shares Revealing Tales About Richards and More

The Ridgefield Playhouse and I-95 have had a longstanding and fruitful business relationship.The Playhouse, it's leadership and staff have always been welcoming to us and we like to think we've been good to them as well.

I've been doing the I-95 Morning Show for 15 years and in that time I've had so many wonderful memories in that building. We performed our Ethan and Lou 10 year Anniversary concert there, I've met countless celebrities at the Playhouse and have attended many of their shows.

Many of the top flight guests we've booked on the I-95 Morning Show have been courtesy of our association with the Playhouse. But it wasn't just the rock stars that got invited to our studio, the people behind the curtain have always been regular guests on our shows.

Jared Shahid is the new Managing Director at the Ridgefield Playhouse but not a new face to us. Ethan and I have hung with him backstage, we've had him in the studio and he and I even worked on a TV project together.

Jared is one of the best storytellers I know so we were delighted to invite him back on the show. Recently, Shahid joined us on the the I-95 Morning Show with Ethan, Lou & Dave. Whenever he comes in, he brings tickets and stories for our audience. These are some of the amazing behind the scenes tales he shared with us on Thursday (5/25/23).
