The launch of the 9a-noon (ET) block for TALK RADIO NETWORK ENTERTAINMENT's AMERICA'S RADIO NEWS NETWORK is set for JULY 25th. Veteran news anchor talk host ERNIE BROWN, who joined TRN/ARNN from CBS RADIO News-Talk KRLD-A/DALLAS, will anchor the block, "MID-MORNINGS LIVE WITH ERNIE BROWN." With the new block, ARNN offers four three-hour contiguous news blocks, which, combined with TRN's "AMERICA'S MORNING NEWS," constitutes 15 hours of long-form news weekdays 6a-9p (ET).
"AMERICA'S RADIO NEWS NETWORK finally provides radio news reporting delivered without a left or right slant, with just the facts guiding the story. I am happy to be reporting to you live from WASHINGTON, DC and anchoring for ARNN," said BROWN. "It's a complicated world in which we're living, and it seems every day things get even more complex. It's great to be part of ARNN and I'll strive to provide more in depth news coverage to help everyone understand the issues and how they may affect us all."
"We cover 10 to 12 stories with 4 to 6 audio actualities each quarter hour -- the perfect PPM solution for an A.D.D. world. Stations love the long-form news product so much they are asking for more of it sooner. We are frankly stunned by the demand!," said TRN and ARNN CEO MARK MASTERS.
"ERNIE BROWN and I began our broadcast careers at just about the same time, although to his credit, he's sat behind more microphones, in more major markets, than the majority of broadcasters on-air today," said ARNN EVP, News and Programming JOHN MCCASLIN. "ERNIE's wealth of experience as a news anchor is evident in his daily ARNN broadcasts. You can cite virtually any topic and ERNIE can -- and will -- expand like nobody else."
