LAURA INGRAHAM and TALK RADIO NETWORK ENTERPRISES have inked a new deal for TRN to continue distribution of INGRAHAM's show. The multi-year extension continues INGRAHAM's five-year business relationship with TRN.
TRN CEO MARK MASTERS said, "We are excited and proud to continue syndicating The LAURA INGRAHAM Show. LAURA's unique brand of conservative wit and wisdom, along with her searing analysis of pop culture, resonates with a wide and diverse audience. Given her proven track record in the industry, LAURA's star will continue to rise for many years to come." The show is currently heard in 24 of the top-25 metro markets and 44 of the top-50 metro markets. TRNE will be announcing several new affiliates in the coming weeks.
INGRAHAM said, "This is a critical time for our country both politically and culturally, and I am thrilled to continue my daily conversation with my listeners coast-to-coast. I feel like I'm just getting warmed up ... TRNE, led by MARK MASTERS, has demonstrated a clear talent for fostering and growing innovative Talk radio programming, and I look forward to continuing our successful collaboration. Americans want and deserve smart, funny and irreverent talk, and I intend to keep giving it to them."
