SYNDICATED SOLUTIONS, INC. fills the weekly slot formerly filled by travel host PETER GREENBERG with a new travel show hosted by longtime travel writer and TV/radio host RUDY MAXA. "RUDY MAXA'S WORLD" will air SATURDAYS 10a-noon ET, with NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC travel journalist CHRISTOPHER ELLIOTT on board for commentary and occasional guest hosting duties. MAXA will also host a weekday one-minute daily feature for SSI. GREENBERG recently moved from SSI to WESTWOOD ONE for syndication.
MAXA, the host of PBS' "RUDY MAXA'S WORLD" and NPR's "THE SAVVY TRAVELER" and a writer known for his work at THE WASHINGTON POST and NATIONAL GROGRAPHIC, said, "The opportunity this radio show provides to reach around the globe and discuss all aspects of travel while interacting with the audience is very exciting. Working with a roster of great stations and leading sponsors as well as CHRISTOPHER ELLIOTT is truly the icing on cake. I look forward to working with SSI to ensure RUDY MAXA’S WORLD is the number one travel radio show in AMERICA!"
SSI Pres. BOB CAREY said, "It’s not often in business that you get an opportunity to take something good and make it substantially better. RUDY MAXA is one of AMERICA's most respected and recognized travel journalists. He’s a broadcast pro and seasoned multimedia talent who’s enjoyed major-league TV, radio, print and online successes. CHRISTOPHER ELLIOTT is also well respected and enjoys excellent multimedia exposure. Uniting these popular and high-profile personalities -- leaders at the top of travel industry -- is a very special opportunity.
"I personally thank PETER GREENBERG for his years of service with us and respect that together we established a solid business. Today however, with RUDY and CHRIS replacing PETER, we’re well positioned to significantly expand the radio program and better serve both affiliates and sponsors. All of the underpinnings are in place and adding RUDY MAXA’S WORLD with CHRISTOPHER ELLIOTT is truly the exclamation point for our stations and sponsors."
