Travel show "RUDY MAXA'S WORLD" is celebrating its first anniversary in syndication through SYNDICATED SOLUTIONS, INC. MAXA came aboard the weekly show last NOVEMBER and airs on over 110 affiliates, including CBS RADIO News-Talk KFWB-A/LOS ANGELES, SALEM Talk WHK-A/CLEVELAND, CH HOLDINGS Talk-Sports KTRS-A/ST. LOUIS, CUMULUS Talk WWTN (SUPER TALK 99.7 WTN)/NASHVILLE, CLEAR CHANNEL Talk WGY-A-F/ALBANY, and more, plus XM SATELLITE RADIO. The show airs SATURDAYS 10a-noon (ET) and also offers a weekday 60-second feature.
SSI Pres. BOB CAREY said, "A year ago I said it's not often in business that you get an opportunity to take something good and make it substantially better. Well, a year later, RUDY MAXA has certainly substantiated those comments and then some. As one of AMERICA's most respected and recognized travel journalists, RUDY's a broadcast pro and seasoned multimedia talent with a broad appeal who enjoys television, radio, print and online successes. Broadcasting regularly from different cities around the globe, not just talking about what's in the news but covering it and experiencing it live -- RUDY MAXA'S WORLD is hands-down AMERICA's #1 Travel Radio Show. RUDY's a winner and sponsors and stations know if they seek upscale leisure and business travelers -- there's no better place for success than RUDY MAXA'S WORLD."
MAXA said, "Travel is the biggest industry in the world and we're reminded almost daily just how many sectors of it impact us all. I spent 22 years as a WASHINGTON journalist and investigative reporter -- 13 of those years at the WASHINGTON POST -- and I bring reporting and interviewing skills to bear on a show that's entertaining and up-to-the-minute. A breaking travel news story occurring on FRIDAY or early SATURDAY is covered on our show, often with an expert to take listeners deeper into the story. But I also know first hand that travel is fun and aspirational, which is why we also speak to the industry decision makers, travel enthusiasts and many others who share these passions. I work hard each week to ensure the loyal listeners of RUDY MAXA WORLD feel as if they're coming along on an interesting ride with a trusted source and friend. And the results enjoyed these past 12 months certainly demonstrate that our listeners, affiliates and sponsors get it."
