Local Radio Networks has signed with ABC News Radio to bring ABC’s award-winning service exclusively to LRN affiliates. LRN affiliates will have access to the worldwide resources of ABC News and ABC News Radio, including hourly newscasts from ABC News Now, ABC Digital, and ABC Cuts. ABC News Radio is America’s largest commercial radio network, reaching over 76 million listeners each week across broadcast and digital audio platforms.
“With ABC News Radio as our partner, LRN affiliates will receive world-leading, highly respected news, along with ultimate flexibility,” said Steve Swick, Chief Executive Officer of Local Radio Networks. “LRN affiliates already experience maximum local control of their 24/7 format broadcasts, and now, with the freedom to choose from a variety of ABC News Radio options, they can continue to meet the specific needs of their individual markets.”
