ABC Radio Networks has signed Michael Baisden to a new multi-year syndication deal. The Michael Baisden Show launched in syndication with ABC in 2005 and has grown to 68 affiliates.

It will encompass a development deal in addition to multi-media platforms including websites, podcasts, mobile channel and live events.

"Michael’s show has developed one of the most loyal audiences in radio today and his consistently strong ratings have made him a brand of choice for key advertisers," said Jim Robinson, President of ABC Radio Networks. "Renewing our original agreement was a priority and positions us for substantial success in the years ahead."
