ROSER COMMUNICATIONS B/EZ WUTQ/UTICA, NY is adding more talk into morning drive. Starting MONDAY, MAY 2nd, the WKTV-TV "NewsChannel 2 at Sunrise" news will be aired, followed by "Talk of the Town with MARK PIERSMA" from 7-10a.
"Talk of the Town with MARK PIERSMA" is a news-driven morning show that focuses on local news, local current events and issues in the UTICA-ROME area and the MOHAWK VALLEY. "We like to call it a news magazine show," said PIERSMA. "Yes, we focus on local politics, but we also think it’s important to be able to give local people a chance to let their voices be heard. The show is really about you, your neighbors and your community."
"We feel that delivering a quality FM News/Talk format, in addition to the soft favorites in the Utica-Rome market is long overdue," ROSER COMMUNICATIONS GSM GRANT ROSER said. "By adding WKTV’s ‘NewsChannel 2 at Sunrise’ news at 6am and expanding the Talk of the Town by an hour, we can achieve our goal to bring more news and information to the local FM audience."
