TOM LEYKIS outlined some more details of his return to daily talk programming in an interview with ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER columnist GARY LYCAN, saying that his APRIL 2nd return will be available online only at tomleykis.newnormalnetwork.com/listen.pls and www.facebook.com/tomleykisshow.
LEYKIS told LYCAN that it "looks unlikely" that he'll be on terrestrial radio for his return, adding, "I've had my tires kicked over the last few months and I am having a hard time getting excited about joining in on the non-stop 'Obamacare' or all-politics talk formats that currently exist ... the talk radio that is currently on the air in SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA primarily attracts an audience over age 45 with a majority of listeners who are 65 and over. I'm not saying that this demographic shouldn't have talk shows to listen to. It's just not what I prefer to be doing at this moment. Our audience is men 18-44. Men under 45 are still looking for talk shows to listen to that speak to them."
"There will be a 24/7 stream devoted to the show," LEYKIS, the former KLSX/LOS ANGELES and WESTWOOD ONE host whose contract with CBS RADIO expires at the end of MARCH, said. "We will do it live for anywhere from two to five hours every weekday, followed by continuous replays until the next show. Apps such as TUNEIN, WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER, WINAMP, WUNDERADIO, even iTUNES will receive the show. PCs, MACS, iPADS and all ANDROID tablets, all smartphones, and WiFi enabled vehicles.
