Three Add 'The Money Pit,' Including A Homecoming Of Sorts
July 28, 2014 at 4:16 AM (PT)
THE MONEY PIT HOME IMPROVEMENT SHOW has added new affiliates in three markets. Adding the show are CUMULUS News-Talk KARN-F/LITTLE ROCK, PILGRIM COMMUNICATIONS News-Talk KRCN-A (RADIO COLORADO NETWORK)/DENVER, and TOWNSQUARE MEDIA News-Talk simulcast WOBM-A/LAKEWOOD-WADB-A (NEWSTALK 1160/1310)/ASBURY PARK, NJ.
The latter addition is, in a way, a homecoming for MONEY PIT co-host TOM KRAEUTLER, who said, "Way back in the mid-'90s when I was an aspiring radio host, I appeared on BELMAR, NJ’s WADB on a show called 'HELP YOURSELF,' which hosted by MARY BARETTA. Later, when that station flipped to become WRAT 'RAT RADIO,' MARY and I teamed up to start 'HOMECHEK,' a home improvement show on WOBM, which of course led to the birth of THE MONEY PIT in 1999. So WADB and WOBM were really my first and second stations - ever - and it’s nice to have them back after almost 20 years!"
WOBM-WADB GM DON DALESIO added, “TOWNSQUARE MEDIA is thrilled to bring THE MONEY PIT back home to the JERSEY SHORE on NEWSTALK 1160/1310. TOM KRAEUTLER is now a nationally known expert on home repair and improvement and our local audience will appreciate THE MONEY PIT airing once again in the market that he calls home.”
