'The Real Side With Joe Messina' Adds Second Hour
January 20, 2012 at 4:03 AM (PT)
FOXROCK SYNDICATION SERVICES' syndicated talk show "THE REAL SIDE WITH JOE MESSINA," is expanding to add a second hour.
FOXROCK COMMUNICATIONS Pres. MATT SMITH said, "Two stories come to mind. The first one involved JOE and a promotion he ran giving away buttons that said, 'It's okay to say Merry CHRISTMAS.' We had a great split of zip codes showing how many people asked for the buttons in affiliate markets That really shows the interactive power of this program. We were fortunate that in the areas where we didn't have affiliates, the Program Directors were impressed by the response. We received so many requests for these buttons, that a second printing was necessary. We fully expect this great show to explode in 2012 because of good old fashioned grass-roots listener demand, and our second hour will help our listeners get their REAL SIDE fix."
"As I've always said, this is a fresh approach to issues oriented radio," added SMITH. "JOE MESSINA faces issues in the news head on. There is no spin with this show. No right side, no wrong side, just 'THE REAL SIDE.'"
