TYSON, the Director of NEW YORK's HAYDEN PLANETARIUM, a frequent TV guest on shows from "THE DAILY SHOW" to "THE BIG BANG THEORY" and host of the revived version of the late CARL SAGAN's "COSMOS" series for FOX launching in JANUARY, said, "When shown the fun and funny of science, I've found most people stay hungry for knowledge and wisdom on how the universe works. Our new syndication agreement with SSI allows STARTALK RADIO to envision an audience as vast as the Cosmos itself. To affiliates and sponsors, I look forward to working with you and entertaining listeners across AMERICA via this great show."
SSI President BOB CAREY said, "There is nothing comparable to STARTALK RADIO currently on America's airwaves. And there's no one comparable to NEIL DEGRASSE TYSON. He's highly credentialed and passionate with a great sense of humor. He's been recognized in the TIME 100, voted by the editors of TIME MAGAZINE as one of the 100 most influential people in the world and even has an asteroid renamed after him... which, let's be honest, is very cool! The show is a mix of entertainment and information, delivered in an engaging style that easily connects with listeners. Additionally, NEIL has amassed nearly 500,000 Twitter followers and STARTALK RADIO has experienced over 600,000 podcast downloads over the past 90 days -- emphasizing the reach of the host and strength of the show brand. Stations and sponsors looking to add an exclamation point to their bottom line need to look no further than to secure an exclusive association with NEIL DEGRASSE TYSON and STARTALK RADIO today."
