KOGO's Hedgecock Inks Syndication Deal
September 4, 2007 at 3:38 PM (PT)
CLEAR CHANNEL Talk KOGO-A/SAN DIEGO afternoon host ROGER HEDGECOCK enters national syndication with a weekend show through SYNDICATED SOLUTIONS INC. beginning in NOVEMBER. The show will air SATURDAYS noon-3p ET with a daily 60-second "THE ROGER REPORT" feature available; in 2008, the parties plan to launch HEDGECOCK's 3-6p PT weekday show into syndication as well.
SSI Pres. BOB CAREY says,"ROGER HEDGECOCK is a major-league talent and winning brand who has dominated SAN DIEGO for years while also enjoying national success as the top guest host for RUSH LIMBAUGH's show. The country is entering an important election year and by rolling out ROGER live on SATURDAYS in NOVEMBER, stations can easily extend the weekday successes they enjoy with RUSH’s program to the identical daypart on SATURDAYS -- with a respected voice THAT listeners and sponsors are already familiar with and trust.
"When we include weekday syndication in 2008, ROGER will be well positioned to join station lineups in the late afternoon or early evening, and tackle the important issues of the day six days a week. SSI is proud to add ROGER to our company, as he’s a proven winner with an unmistakable on-air presence. He’s credible, passionate and very entertaining. I strongly encourage any station looking to add an exclamation point to their lineup that delivers results – to be on the phone now calling SSI to lock-up THE ROGER HEDGECOCK SHOW."
