Premiere Radio Networks Syndicates The Randi Rhodes Show
Edited on Thu Apr-23-09 04:21 PM by Patsy Stone
From Green 960 AM in San Francisco:

http://www.green960.com/pages/blog.html?feed=313154&art...

Video announcement at the link above (although I'm having trouble getting it to play).

LOS ANGELES, April 23, 2009 Premiere Radio Networks is proud to announce that beginning May 11, The Randi Rhodes Show will join its lineup of nationally syndicated radio programs. Airing weekdays from 3-6pm ET, Rhodes will enlighten and entertain listeners with her trademark candid, incisive opinions, as well as her biting sense of humor, as she discusses everything from news and current events, to politics and hot topics. The Randi Rhodes Show will broadcast live from Washington, D.C., and will be heard on more than 25 affiliates including KTLK-AM/Los Angeles, Green 960 Online and Radio/San Francisco and KPOJ-AM/Portland.

"Right now, America needs a voice that reflects its hopes and concerns. It will be my privilege and pleasure to provide vital information to the public about everything that is possible in the 21st century, and also have a few laughs along the way," commented Rhodes. "Premiere is an incredible family of radio pros, and is truly the most talented and experienced radio syndicator in the nation. Im exited about this decision and Premieres enthusiasm for this partnership. Its truly a dream come true."

Premiere Radio EVP of Affiliate Marketing Julie Talbott stated, "Randi has carved a niche in Talk radio with her straight-forward approach, intelligence, wit and fact-driven content - qualities that attract audiences. We cant wait to deliver The Randi Rhodes Show to stations nationwide."

A Brooklyn native and former U.S. Air Force aircraft mechanic, Rhodes began her career in radio at a Country music station in Seminole, Texas. She enjoyed stints in Mobile, Alabama, as well as New Yorks WAPP-FM, Milwaukees WQFM and West Palm Beachs WJNO-AM. In 1992, she landed at Miamis WIOD-AM, where she took over the stations 8 -11 p.m. In 2004, Air America Radio began nationally syndicating her program, and she later joined Nova M Radios lineup in 2008. In addition, Rhodes starred in the HBO documentary Left of the Dial, and was named Woman of the Year by Talkers Magazine in 2007.

And frankly, I soooo miss hearing her opinions!

28. The Jesus Christ Show?
Is that the one they show on South Park from time to time?

Some scary crazy people on that list... maybe Randi's going to go Right Wing and cash in, like she often suggested she could have done.

30. Uggggh.... what company she will be forced to "keep"
Best wishes to her.... I'm not her greatest fan, but, still I'm quite glad she's coming back to radio... I just hate that she's going to be nearly the sole token among this RW slime line-up..

33. This is a huge step up for Randi
Premiere Radio is the biggest player in talk radio syndication, even bigger than Dial Global. I wouldn't be surprised if Randi starts to show up on right-wing talk stations in markets that don't have a progressive talk station right now.

Perhaps Clear Channel is not as evil as we thought...

34. Or perhaps Clear Channel is just being pre-emptive
Edited on Fri Apr-24-09 09:12 AM by rocktivity
After all, they are now dealing with a president who might get a hankering to investigate the world of media consolidation at any given time. Having Randi on Board gives them the opportunity to say, "Whatever do you mean? WE'RE fair and balanced!" But will she be back on the air in New York?
