Radio gets Retro


Retro Television Network has expanded into radio, launching RTN Radio, a syndicated radio service featuring chart-topping songs primarily from the ’70s. RTN, which is owned by publicly traded Equity Media Holdings, is offering RTN Radio as a 24-hour per day satellite feed with no subscription fees or charges. The format allows for local inserts. “RTN Radio is the perfect mix for baby boomers, with a whole lot of the 70s and a dash of the 60s and the 80s,” said Jeff Timpa, Director of Programming for Equity Media. As you have probably guessed, the Retro Television Network offers classic TV shows. It is designed for the digital multicast channels of full-power TV stations.
