He’ll be coming to the annual Williston Basin Petroleum Conference, and he will be broadcasting his radio and television shows from there.

Bismarck, N.D. – Sean Hannity, host of Premiere Radio Networks’ The Sean Hannity Show and FOX News’ Hannity with Sean Hannity, will be a keynote speaker at the 22nd Annual Williston Basin Petroleum Conference. Hannity will join several oil and gas industry leaders and CEOs to address this year’s theme, “Bakken Strong,” and discuss the role oil and gas has in strengthening our state and nation’s economy, job growth and energy security.

“I care about this great country and believe in the American dream,” said Hannity. “I am thrilled to support the effort to make America energy independent, and get America back to work.”
