SUPERADIO NETWORKS has agreed to an affiliation and sales arrangement whereby they will syndicate the REV. AL SHARPTON and WARREN BALLENTINE shows. Effective immediately all affiliation and national advertising sales of the SYNDICATION ONE produced talk programs will be handled by SUPERADIO.
AL SHARPTON currently airs on 20 stations including WVON/CHICAGO, WOL/WASHINGTON, WILD/BOSTON, WAMJ/ATLANTA and WCHB/DETROIT. SHARPTON had been added to a revised talent line-up at ACCESS.1 Talk WWRL/NEW YORK, which will become the flagship station of the show. WARREN BALLENTINE currently airs in four of the top ten markets, including WAMJ/ATLANTA, WILD/BOSTON, and WCHB/DETROIT. It is scheduled to begin airing in CHICAGO on WVON later this month.
“BALLENTINE and SHARPTON represent the future of talk programming with their proven ability in major markets to target younger and appeal to the more desirable 25-54 demographic,” says GARY BERNSTEIN, Pres./Programming for SYNDICATION ONE. “Both programs are poised for unprecedented growth on both AM and FM radio.”
JACK BRYANT, Pres./COO of SUPERADIO expressed it this way. “With the huge number of people engaged in the Presidential primaries, the general election in NOVEMBER, the economy and other national and local issues, the interest and audience for talk radio has exploded . AL SHARPTON and WARREN BALLENTINE are two of the important voices working as conduits to the community and we’re committed to expanding these two shows across the country.”
