The re-launch of The Phil Hendrie Show in 2007 by TRN-FM has allowed Hendrie to incorporate some new elements into the nightly program, tackling issues and breaking news of the day, while still using his creative style and voice characterizations to provide perspective. Now Hendrie has added his cast of fictional characters back into the show, provoking people while feeding a circle of social satire.
