America Channel Launches Radio Show6/14/2004 9:24 AM Eastern
Looking to give voice to America’s heartland and debate on industry issues, The America Channel has launched an Internet audio service.
The America Radio Channel is available Fridays at noon (EST) on the network’s Web site (americachannel.us) and on World Talk Radio (www.worldtalkradio.com). The linear cable network is expected to launch late this year.
Hosts for the one-hour radio show include acclaimed journalist Mary Alice Williams and entertainment personality Shawn Southwick-King. Other on-air contributors include America Channel chairman and CEO Doron Gorshein and Pantelis Michalopoulos of Washington, D.C.-based law firm Steptoe & Johnson LLP, who is also serving as the network’s counsel for government affairs.
Topics will include current events, human-interest segments, profiles of ordinary heroes, trends in TV content, legislative matters and a kids' forum. Guests will include cable and satellite executives, TAC television production partners, local American personalities and legislators.
“The America Channel will tell the extraordinary stories of how ordinary Americans are transforming this country community by community. Across the country, people are supporting our mission, and they want a greater level of community, connectivity and authenticity on television,” Gorshein said in a prepared statement.
“The America Channel Radio allows listeners to follow the story of The America Channel as it unfolds and provides a taste of the programming to come,” he added.
