America's Radio News Short-Form Free Trial Offered To CNN Affiliates
March 23, 2012 at 3:50 AM (PT)
With CNN RADIO ending service to affiliates after next week, TALK RADIO NETWORK's new AMERICA'S RADIO NEWS Short-Form is offering CNN affiliates an option to take its top- and bottom-of-the-hour reports for free for 45 days starting APRIL 2nd. The offer is intended to allow CNN affiliates to take additional time to make their decisions on a permanent replacement for CNN rather than make that decision in the next week.
AMERICA'S RADIO NEWS NETWORK EVP/News JOHN MCCASLIN said, "We're so confident that this is the best top and bottom of the hour news product on the air, we are willing to allow stations to air it, without inventory requirement -- contract free through MAY 15th. So, all you have to ask yourself is, 'What am I going to do with over 700 extra minutes of local inventory, if I take ARNN up on its free sample offer?'"
"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 for urgent breaking newscasts on the hour and half-hour, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, along with our intriguing and diverse lineup of newsmaker interviews in addition to our large array of 3 hour long-form weekday news blocks our listeners enjoy each weekday."
