ROB REDDING NOW HEARD IN BAY AREA

By Staff

March 5, 2009, 8 p.m.  Talk radio show host Robert "Rob" Redding Jr. has extended his nationally-syndicated program, named after his award-winning Web site Redding News Review, into the Bay Area.

Redding's three-hour radio show is now airing every Sunday from 7 to 10 p.m. PT in the Oakland, San Francisco and San Jose listening areas on Green 960 KKGN-AM. 

"I am thrilled to have Rob in the lineup," said John Scott, KKGN's program director. "His centrist politics and his great energy makes this show a great fit for the Green 960 brand."

"This is the only program able to handle up-to-the-minute news on politics and issues of race from a truly independent perspective," Redding said. "These issues are even more important given the harsh economic climate and a new president, unlike any we have ever seen. In short, this program's time has come."

Redding show is already heard in all 50 states on XM 169 and terrestrial radio via the Genesis Communications Network. GCN airs the show in the Austin and Orlando areas and throughout Arkansas, Louisiana and Mississippi.
