March 3, 2016 at 11:43 AM (PT)
HUBBARD BROADCASTING News WTOP (103.5 FM)/WASHINGTON, D.C., and WTOP.com have launched "TARGET USA," a podcast series on PODCASTONE focusing on the threats facing AMERICA today, reported and produced by WTOP National Security Correspondent JJ GREEN.
GREEN investigates the risks, from terrorists to anarchists, and cyber-criminals to nation states. He dives into the people behind them, the agencies fighting them and their impact on AMERICANS, so we can all live smarter despite the target on our country’s back. Debuting today, new episodes will be available at WTOP.com, PodcastOne.com, the PODCASTONE app and iTUNES every THURSDAY.
In the first installment, Dir./National Intelligence JIM CLAPPER opens up in an exclusive interview about the dark threats and dangerous enemies the U.S. faces.
WTOP Sr. Regional VP JOEL OXLEY commented: “As an all-News station with a tight format, our content is consumed in very short form. This partnership with PODCASTONE gives us an opportunity to showcase and distribute some of our longer form, in-depth material. NORM PATTIZ and his team are pros, and we look forward to this launch and many more opportunities to come.”
Added PODCASTONE Chairman/CEO NORM PATTIZ: “One of the great things about our partnership with HUBBARD BROADCASTING is access to some of the greatest stations in the nation. As the leading news station in AMERICA, with legendary call letters and based in WASHINGTON, D.C., WTOP represents a tremendous opportunity to provide PODCASTONE with unique programming for audio consumers around the world. Working with JOEL and his top-flight team of news professionals is, how should I put it, as good as it gets.”
