TALK RADIO NETWORK SYNDICATIONS' AMERICA'S RADIO NEWS NETWORK is launching a second radio news network providing short-form news reports for the top and bottom of the hour around the clock. The news service, ARNN SHORT-FORM. starting APRIL 2nd, is being offered as a complement to the existing long-form news from AMERICA'S RADIO NEWS NETWORK.
ARNN EVP/News JOHN MCCASLIN said, "'Journalism Without Agenda' is not just a marketing phrase at AMERICA'S RADIO NEWS - it's a code we live by -- and the marketplace has responded so strongly to our long-form all news product that the second news network of our short-form top and bottom of the hour news (plus audio actualities, special reports, news maker interviews etc....) was a natural outgrowth of this demand. We are honored to be the fastest growing brand in news radio. We truly are 'Journalism Without Agenda.' This is something stations not only deeply appreciate, but have a need for like never before."
"ARNN's new top-and bottom-of-the-hour news features now means that our rapidly growing family of network affiliates will no longer have to break away from our existing ARNN long-form news blocks to hear that hour's top breaking national and international news stories," added CEO MARK MASTERS. "Bottom line, ARNN is now the complete 'go-to' radio news network
