THE TABAS COMPANY announces the formation of the "TOM KENT RADIO NETWORK". TKRN will feature 24/7 programming featuring high-profile personalities live via satellite to radio stations nationwide and around the world. In addition, with the convergence of Internet, digital content and broadcast media, the network will deliver name brand content to multiple platforms.
TKRN's first offering will be 24/7 programming featuring the personality of TOM KENT. KENT's name and programs have been branded in over 200 markets in NORTH AMERICA. In addition to the daily offerings, there will be three weekend specialty shows. "THE ULTIMATE PARTY" is a five-hour live party show for SATURDAY night targeting adults, along with "TOM KENT WEEKEND" and "MY '70s SHOW."
On the launching of the new venture, KENT told ALL ACCESS, "Since selling my last syndication company, it's given me an opportunity to regroup and refocus. While the business continues to constrict and confine, it's creating many new opportunities for unique quality content. I couldn't be more excited about the future! We'll be embracing totally new technologies that will enable our personalities to penetrate multiple formats. This will be unprecedented major-market radio available on a first-come, first-serve basis for any market on the planet. TKRN will be doing things others haven't dreamed of yet -- and the best part is that all of our products will be completely modular. Count on great radio!"
