United Stations Radio Networks announced that it has added “Doug Stephan’s Good Day,” “Good Day Weekend” and the “TalkRadio Count Down” to its growing lineup of info and talk programming. USRN will handle all network functions including affiliate relations and national ad sales for the trio of programs. The announcement of the new programming partnership was made jointly by Doug Stephan and USRN’s President/COO, Jim Higgins.
Now in its 22nd year, Doug Stephan’s Good Day is among the top syndicated talk shows in the country. The program features caller-friendly morning talk, with a full line-up of news, weather, entertainment, business, travel and other lifestyle topics, and is broadcast live Monday-Friday from 4am to 10am Eastern Time.
Good Day has over 280 affiliates, and Talkers Magazine recently estimated Stephan’s audience to be the 6th largest in the nation among all talk radio programs. Doug’s TalkRadio Count Down is heard on weekends on stations across the USA. That program showcases the hot topics heard the previous week on America’s News/Talk Radio Stations based on a Top 10 list compiled by Talkers Magazine. The Good Day Weekend program, focusing on Food and Health, features Doug Stephan three hours live each Saturday morning from 6am to 9am Eastern along with co-hosts Dr. Ken Kronhaus (on Health) and The Supermarket Guru Phil Lempert (on food).
“Doug Stephan’s Good Day gives affiliates, listeners and advertisers exactly what we feel is needed today…a chance to start the day with a non-confrontational and non-controversial block of topical and lifestyle news along with interviews with celebrities and newsmakers,” says USRN’s Jim Higgins. “We are excited to have a chance to help him to grow his show and maximize his hard work.”
Stephan added, “I’ve known and respected the folks at United Stations for a long time, and I’m excited to be to tapping into their skills and their contacts to help us to expand our reach.”
