'Funseekers Radio Network' Ends Daily Syndication, Plans Weekend Edition
March 5, 2012 at 4:19 AM (PT)
The regionally-syndicated "FUNSEEKERS RADIO NETWORK" show has ended daily syndication as of FRIDAY (3/2), but host/producer DENNY AINSWORTH tells listeners that the show will return as a weekend entry. AINSWORTH continued the show after the passing of longtime host and show founder LUDLOW PORCH last year.
"The loss of the beloved founder, a poor economy, and changes in radio programming philosophies has led to the most difficult business decision I have ever made," AINSWORTH writes on the show's website. "I battled with myself for many months until I finally realized that the best option to keep some form of LUDLOW's original idea alive is to move to a weekend-only program format. I believe that we can combine the modern internet with traditional radio to create a new, fun, and entertaining radio product that can spread to more areas due to the flexibility offered to radio affiliates."
The show began in 1970 at the old RING RADIO Talk WRNG-A (now DICKEY Sports WCNN-A (680 THE FAN))/ATLANTA and ran for many years on crosstown COX Talk WSB-A.
