JIM WATKINS has rejoined TALK RADIO NETWORK's TRN SYNDICATIONS, LTD. to oversee new projects and business development in the affiliate relations department.

Producer at TRN for 13 years; he previously programmed for MERIDIAN BROADCASTING in FORT MYERS and CLEAR CHANNEL in SANTA BARBARA.
CEO MARK MASTERS said, “JIM is deeply entrenched in Talk radio, and has developed alliances with key programmers across the country. As the country ramps up into the mid-term elections, Talk radio has never been more vital to facilitating the national debate. JIM really understands the vitality of Talk Radio better than most people in the industry today.”
“Talk radio reaches the most affluent and loyal audience of any format, and it does so by allowing for a free exchange of ideas which can and does influence public policy in a big way,” said WATKINS. “To have one of the best rosters of talent to be found anywhere gives me a great sense of pride.”
