USA RADIO' NETWORK's syndicated "TRENDING TODAY USA WITH RUSTY HUMPHRIES" has been added at iHEARTMEDIA News-Talk WGST-A/ATLANTA for noon-2p (ET). HUMPHRIES, the veteran syndicated talker, hosted a local show at WGST in 2011-12. Also adding the show are FLORIDA TALK RADIO News-Talk WSRQ-A-W295BH-W255CC/SARASOTA, ABSOLUTE BROADCASTING News-Talk WSMN-A/NASHUA, NH, and STEWART BROADCASTING News-Talk WHEP-A-W223AX/FOLEY, AL.
“Moving TRENDING TODAY WITH RUSTY HUMPHRIES into the 12p-3p Eastern time slot gives us more hours of drive time audience on the east and west coasts. Honestly, our biggest hurdle from programmers is that they wanted me earlier in the day, and have been suggesting this daypart since we debuted just after the first of the year,” said HUMPHRIES, who also serves as SVP of Programming for USA RADIO NETWORKS. “Look, I’m a giver, and love giving the audience what they want.”
“RUSTY has a great history in ATLANTA and we are excited to have him back on Talk Radio 640 WGST,” said WGST PD DAN HUNT. “TRENDING TODAY USA provides our listeners with the latest news and information in real time, while bringing a fresh perspective that can’t be duplicated anywhere else in the market.”
