United Stations Radio Networks announced that effective immediately the network will begin marketing The Lex & Terry Morning Show to both radio affiliates and national advertisers. Their show had been distributed and sold by Envision Radio Networks. The agreement was announced by USRN’s President/COO, Jim Higgins, at the company’s New York headquarters along with the show’s co-hosts, Lex Staley and Terry Jaymes.
Lex & Terry first teamed up on the air at WFYV-FM, Jacksonville in 1992. The two had a successful morning show locally in Jacksonville and then in 1997, the duo decided to take the program into national syndication. The show found a national audience immediately and Lex & Terry eventually moved their broadcast operations to Dallas at Clear Channel’s KEGL-FM, which still serves at the hometown for their studios. Lex Staley has a long history in radio both on the air and in various management capacities including having been a PD. Terry Jaymes comes from a background of comedy, television and live performance, and together they’ve got over 50 years of combined radio experience.
Currently, the Lex & Terry show is broadcast from 6am until 11am Eastern Time / 5-10am Central Time each weekday, with ”Best-Of” segments available for weekend programming. Affiliates of the show have traditionally been rock stations, and that trend continues today. Lex & Terry provide podcasts as well as live streaming and also offer video via www.Ustream.tv as well as programming through a branded iPhone app. While the Lex & Terry show continues to be popular across affiliates in the state of Florida where the team first appeared on the radio, the current Lex & Terry Morning Show Network boasts affiliates from North Carolina to Minnesota and from Louisiana to West Virginia.
In making the announcement, USRN’s Jim Higgins noted, “Lex & Terry have a morning show that’s legendary in status. Their content is unique and creative, and their audience is incredibly loyal. It’s the kind of talent and daypart programming that we want to showcase in every possible way.” Lex & Terry added, “This is a great day and a proud day for the L&T Radio Network. United Stations is the kind of first-class partner that can help us hit our next set of goals. We’re really psyched.”
