Redding Starts Baltimore News Show; Adds New York
WASHINGTON, Jan. 18, 2005, 10 a.m. - Independent radio news/talk host Rob Redding will begin hosting his full length news talk show in Baltimore in February, and will add New York, N.Y., to his list of affiliates for his shorter news talk segments.
Redding will host Redding News Review on WEAA-FM starting Feb. 3. The show, which will air Thursdays from 6 to 7 p.m., marks Redding's full return to talk radio. Redding News Review has been conducted in short news segments for a network of stations culled together under Redding Communications Inc. (RCI), since Redding left Atlanta's WAOK-AM in May of 2003.
"This marks a significant expansion of our brand into the New York and Baltimore radio markets and adds a better signal in Atlanta," RCI CEO Redding said. "It also marks the end of the PowerPoint syndication deal, to avoid possible conflicts in our market coverage."
In October, Redding began a deal with PowerPoint - which is carried on over 60 affiliates in 50 markets, two public radio networks and nationwide on the Sirrus Satellite Network - which Redding says has not yielded the desired results.
"We wish the good folks at PowerPoint all the best," Redding said.
Today's announcement means Redding will conduct an hour long program on WEAA, much like his former award winning show on WAOK. (Redding was been recognized as one of America's top radio talk host by Talkers Magazine).
It also means that Redding starting next month will change affiliates in Atlanta for his shorter news reports from WCLK-FM, the home of PowerPoint, to the 100,000 watt WRFG-FM, and add the 25,000 watt WWRL-AM in New York starting today.
"Redding 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. ReddingNewsReview.com - 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).
