SALEM COMMUNICATIONS CORP. has changed its name to SALEM MEDIA GROUP, INC.
The company released a statement that, "from its start as a single radio station, SALEM has grown into an industry leader across multiple media platforms, including radio, digital, print and mobile. SALEM is still a powerhouse in radio; SALEM owns 106 radio stations across the country, and produces several of the largest nationally-syndicated radio shows on-air today. In addition, SALEM owns several of the most influential brands in the Christian and conservative media space, including CROSSWALK.COM, GODVINE.COM, CHRISTIANITY.COM, BIBLESTUDYTOOLS.COM, TOWNHALL.COM, HOTAIR.COM, REDSTATE.COM, HUMAN EVENTS.COM, THE CONSERVATIVE BOOK CLUB and REGNERY PUBLISHING."
"SALEM's mission has always been to serve our two core audiences -- Christian and conservative -- with engaging and meaningful content" explained CEO EDWARD ATSINGER. "That mission brought us into radio, and it has guided our growth ever since. As more and more of our audience seeks new ways to get information and inspiration, we have added new media platforms to our traditional radio offerings. Now nearly one-third of our total revenue comes from non-broadcast sources. This rebranding of SALEM acknowledges our evolution and confirms our commitment to serve our market."
