Salem Top-Of-Hour News Takes 'TownHall.com' Branding
August 28, 2015 at 10:45 AM (PT)
SALEM MEDIA GROUP's top-of-the-hour news is undergoing changes, with the regular news report aimed at News-Talk stations being renamed after the company's TOWNHALL.COM website and a news report being fed under the SRN NEWS banner at :55 past each hour. The revamped TOWNHALL.COM news will air on SALEM RADIO NETWORK's secular News-Talk top-of-hour news affiliates and SIRIUSXM PATRIOT. The changes will take effect MONDAY (8/31).
"We will continue to offer the outstanding reporting that is a hallmark of SRN NEWS with great anchors and respected correspondents like GREG CLUGSTON at the WHITE HOUSE, LINDA KENYON at the Senate and WALLY HINDES at the House," said SALEM RADIO NETWORK Senior VP PHIL BOYCE. "The new brand extension will allow us to better market the product for News and Talk stations, and we can't think of a better partner than TOWNHALL.COM which is so respected and well-known."
SIRIUSXM VP and GM/Talk Programming DAVE GORAB said, “SIRIUSXM PATRIOT is proud to be a gathering place for the top conservative voices and brands. The addition of hourly news updates from TOWNHALL.COM further solidifies that position."
