DIAL GLOBAL has added CBS MONEYWATCH.COM Editor-at-Large JILL SCHLESINGER's "JILL ON MONEY" weekly show, produced in partnership with CBS RADIO NEWS, to its weekend syndication lineup. Among charter affiliates are CBS RADIO Talk KFWB-A/LOS ANGELES and WTIC-A/HARTFORD, CITADEL Talk WPRO-A-WEAN/PROVIDENCE, and PAMPLIN Talk KPAM-A/PORTLAND.
SCHLESINGER said, "I am excited to build on my national radio and online presence. There's nothing like radio as a way to talk to people about the financial and market issues that concern them and to create a community of loyal fans. Interaction via my blog and TWITTER provides a perfect compliment to the listener who wants more information about the topics covered and brings a new demo to talk radio."
CBS NEWS VP/Radio HARVEY NAGLER said, "JILL is a consummate radio professional with a proven track record. She seamlessly crosses from personal finance concerns to complex economic issues, giving listeners valuable information they can use regardless of their level of sophistication. I love her upbeat, humorous and understandable style."
"JILL is one of the few people from the financial world who can communicate complicated and murky financial information in a relatable way to listeners of all ages, who have varying amounts of money and experience," said DIAL GLOBAL's AMY BOLTON.
