Nat’l Ad Sales For ‘Weekly Country Countdown’ Go to USRN


National radio programming provider United Stations has signed an agreement to sell national network commercial time for the team at KRS Audio Productions and their “Country Music Countdown” package.

The deal is effective immediately.

KRS Audio Productions is the radio group formed by Ken Halford, Roger Ramsey and Shawn Studer, who handle the production and affiliation for Bob Kingsley’s long-running Country Countdown show.

The decision follows a summer 2021 decision by KRS Audio Productions to produce a new Top 30 Country Countdown in a “brown bag” format.

In commenting on the addition of KRS Audio Productions to the company’s ad sales portfolio, United Stations’ Greg Janoff commented, “Country remains the most prevalent format in U.S. Radio, and the KRS team know how to super-serve local stations in that format. We’re happy that we can now include the environment of their programming to our marketing partners.”

KRS Audio Productions’ Shawn Studer added, “The guys at United Stations recognized immediately what we are doing at KRS, and we appreciate their partnership as we roll out and grow our programming.”

United Stations Media Networks was founded in 1994 by the late Dick Clark and Nick Verbitsky.
