Alex Jones will expand his digital TV and radio program to offer 24-hour live coverage, the InfoWars host announced on his show Monday.

“We’re real news, not fake news, like the controlled corporate media. People are hungry for it,” Jones told TheWrap on Monday. “Attempts to destroy InfoWars or any other media permutation will fail …  to quote V for Vendetta. Ideas are bullet proof,” he added.

The right-wing commentator and conspiracy theorist — most famous for suggesting the 2012 Sandy Hook massacre was a hoax — told viewers that he was looking to hire at least 15 people.

“We are launching our biggest recruitment and hiring operation ever in our 23-year-history as we prepare to go 24-hour a day live on TV and radio from the InfoWars news center here in Austin, Texas,” said Jones in his announcement. “We’re looking to hire around 15 people, maybe even more, as we take the information war to the next level in the face of the globalists.”

“We’re looking for video editors, live show producers, people that can run live TV and radio, investigative journalists, we’re looking for reporters out in the field,” he added in the press release, describing the new gigs that would soon be open.

“This is a very, very exciting chance for InfoWars to up our game in the face of the globalists but for you to also be a part of this operation,” said Jones.

Jones also announced a new reporting contest complete with cash prizes for aspiring Infowarriors to participate in.

The hiring spree comes as most media companies struggle to stay above water and points to Jones’ growing muscle in the age of Trump. Despite being widely dismissed as a kook, Jones’ program routinely draws millions of listeners and viewers on YouTube.

An ardent Trump backer, Jones also interviewed the future President of the United States on his show back in 2015, earning praise from the billionaire at the time.

“Your reputation is amazing. I will not let you down,” said Trump. “You will be very, very impressed I hope and I think we’ll be speaking a lot.”
