March 6, 2009, 6 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 Florida and Alabama.

Redding's three-hour radio show this weekend begins airing every Sunday from 7 to 10 p.m. ET on WMEL-AM in Melbourne, Fla. and from 6 to 10 p.m. on WVNA-AM in Tuscumbia, Ala.

"It's one of a kind," said John Harper, WMEL's owner.

"It is unique," said Harper. "There is no other show like it in East Central Florida. We thought it was only natural to add it to our programming lineup on the weekends."

Redding agreed.

"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's show is already heard in all 50 states on XM 169 and terrestrial radio via the Genesis Communications Network. GCN airs the show on KTAE near Austin and KKGN in Oakland, San Francisco, San Jose and throughout Arkansas, Louisiana and Mississippi on the show's flagship KMLB-AM.
