Dial Global’s Michael Smerconish has renewed his contract with Dial Global and will now be produced by Ron Hartenbaum. Smerconish can be heard on powerhouse stations nationwide, including WTKK-FM, WOR-AM, KFWB-AM, WPHT-AM and WXNT, among others.
“We’re entering the most fascinating election cycle ever”, says Michael. “And yet, despite the intense media coverage, there remains a void when it comes to clear thinking and independent viewpoints. I’ve been charting a course to fulfill that role. I know Ron Hartenbaum shares my outlook. For several months we’ve been speaking about the need to grow the talk radio tent by offering a forum not predicated on ideology or anger, and now we’ve decided to pursue that goal together. I intend to rely heavily on his vast experience over the span of many years. Industry-wide he is known for being smart, engaging and personable, and I think big things are about to happen to us both.”
“Michael is leading the way in a new era of talk radio”, says Amy Bolton, Sr. VP/GM News & Talk Dial Global. “His partnership with Ron will continue producing great talk and we’re happy to continue to syndicate his program.”
