America’s Radio News Network and TRN Add Another 3-Hour Daily News Program.

March 8, 2011

Fourth 3-hour daily co-anchored news day part to air 6p.m. to 9p.m. eastern starting May 9th. TRN says the next launch is being accelerated due to affiliate demand and current world events. ARNN's first 3-hour daily block of all news programming, broadcast Monday-Friday at noon to 3 p.m. EST was launched January 24th.

“We cover 10 to 12 stories with 4 to 6 audio actualities each quarter hour – the perfect PPM solution for an A.D.D. world.   Stations love the long-form news product so much they are asking for more of it sooner – we are frankly stunned by the demand!” says Mark Masters, CEO of America’s Radio News Network, and its representative, Talk Radio Network Syndications, Ltd. The second installment is scheduled to begin March 28th at 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., the third installment is scheduled from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. EST will begin May 9th.  ARNN will provide 9 hours back-to-back programming from noon to 9:00 p.m. EST, of its planned 15 hours a day.

America’s Morning News, presented by The Washington Times and Talk Radio Network Entertainment, is another 3-hour long-form all news program. AMN morning news show has over 100 markets, and 13 in the top 30, including Los Angeles, San Francisco, Dallas, Boston, Washington, D.C. and Seattle.  For those markets where AMN is not already taken, a station could add these daily 3 hours to their line-up for a total of 12 hours a day of live all news programming. America’s Morning News airs live Monday through Friday 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. EST.

With the additional 3-hours of daily ARNN programming, stations can now broadcast 9 hours of live radio news back-to-back noon to 9 p.m. EST, and where available, America’s Morning News could be added for another 3 hours of live news for a total of 12 live hours-a-day.
