Equal Time is an American political talk show that aired on CNBC from 1993 to 1999. One of the main hooks of the show was its aim to include more female voices in the typically male-dominated world of Beltway politics. Throughout the show's run, both co-hosts were female, starting in 1995 with Republican strategist Mary Matalin as the conservative co-anchor and journalist Jane Wallace as her liberal counterpart. Wallace left the show in 1995 and was replaced by former White House Press Secretary Dee Dee Myers. In turn, Matalin left in 1996 and was replaced by Bay Buchanan. In 1997 Myers was replaced by comedian Stephanie Miller.
During its four-year run, the show eventually morphed from a softball interview format into a more hard-hitting political forum, not unlike Crossfire.
