    WASHINGTON, Oct. 29, 2004, 8 a.m. - Independent radio news/talk host Rob Redding can now be heard weekly on PowerPoint in all 50 states starting this Sunday. 

    "Just when some counted out and its companion radio program The News Review we have obtained the reach needed to inform people across all of America of the Pressing news they need to know from a truly independent perspective," said Redding. 

    PowerPoint is carried on over 60 affiliates in 50 markets, two public radio networks and nationwide on the Sirrus Satellite Network. The addition of PowerPoint greatly enhances The News Review's existing network of 12 affiliates in six states, to as many as 70 affiliates now running the show. (View PowerPoint's affiliates and view The News Review's affiliates).  

    "PowerPoint is the perfect fit for what we are doing and who we are," he said. "And we are excited to work with the producers of this award winning show."

    PowerPoint, which claims to be the "first ever national public radio information program addressing issues affecting the African-American community using the popular interactive call in talk format to cover diverse topics and issues blended with intriguing and knowledgeable guests" is heard live Sundays 9 to 11pm.

    Redding said the weekly platform also places him back in the Atlanta market, for a second time, since The News Review's segments were cut from WGUN-AM, due to a talk show that decided no longer to purchase time on the station.

   Redding is formerly a talk show host at WAOK-AM in Atlanta, where he was recognized as one of America's top radio talk host by Talkers Magazine. He left WAOK in May 2003, shortly after starting his syndication. 

   "The News Review" update segments contain breaking news and Independent analysis from around the globe specifically tailored for the audiences of talk and music radio stations in the markets covered. - where headlines for the show's are taken from - was founded by Redding in March of 2002. Both companies are owned and operated by (RCI).

    "In less than two years this show's news segments and commentary have risen from relative obscurity," he said. "And we will now prove once and for all that the way we do news and commentary is a vital pacesetter for the future."
