UNITED STATIONS RADIO NETWORKS has inked CNN host LOU DOBBS for a daily national radio talk show, beginning in MARCH. The show will air 3-6p ET weekdays.
"LOU DOBBS brings a true independent voice to Talk Radio, occupying the vital middle ground between the conservative and liberal voices that dominate much of the segment today, particularly as we move toward a critical election for our country," said USRN Chairman/CEO NICK VERBITSKY. "At the same time, this announcement demonstrates the growing importance of the Talk radio segment to the industry today, both on AM and increasingly on FM. We look forward to stirring up the competitive mix in Talk radio."
DOBBS added, "The political climate is rapidly changing. Independents are registering at an unprecedented rate and will determine the outcome of the 2008 election. I’m excited to be adding my voice to the talk show arena and have an opportunity, along with my listeners, to help enrich our national dialog."
