    Talk Radio Network

    Talk Radio Network (abbreviated TRN) is an American radio network providing talk radio and all-news radio programming. The talk network emphasizes conservative talk on weekdays and variety/general interest talk radio on weekends. It is headquartered in Central Point, Oregon. TRN is distributed by Dial Global Radio Networks. Mark Masters is the president and CEO of Talk Radio Network and its subsidiaries. The company began offering its syndicated programs in 1993. Bear Stearns issued a report in 2007 which concluded that TRN is the second largest provider of top tier nationally syndicated radio talk shows in the U.S., making TRN (according to the Bear Stearns report) larger than ABC Radio Networks (ranked 3rd) and CBS controlled Westwood One (which is now ranked 4th) for national talk programming. Talk Radio Network's programming is arranged in the format of a 24-hour network, such that the programming rarely overlaps, with the programming split up among three satellites. Aside from encores, almost all of TRN's programs air live. TRN currently carries no short-form programming; in April 2007, Talk Radio Network debuted its first short form program, a daily commentary hosted by Dick

    WRVA

    WRVA is a News/Talk/Sports formatted broadcast radio station licensed to Richmond, Virginia, serving Central Virginia. WRVA is owned and operated by Clear Channel Communications. Established in 1925, and one of Virginia's older and more powerful AM radio stations, from its base of operations near the Virginia State Capitol, for much of its history, WRVA billed itself as the "Voice of Virginia." Although three-letter call signs were still available when the station was started, "WRVA" was chosen since RVA was short for Richmond, VA. WRVA AM 1140 kHz was launched at 9:00 p.m. on November 2, 1925. Known initially as "Edgeworth Radio", it was owned by Larus and Brother, a tobacco company known as the House of Edgeworth. The radio station was originally operated as a public service 2 nights per week. The early WRVA facilities were a small studio in a corner of a warehouse on Richmond's Tobacco Row and a tower mounted on the roof of the building. It soon became a vital and profitable business enterprise. By 1930, WRVA was on-the-air 7 days a week, 24 hours daily, with broadcasting power increased to 50,000 watts. In 1935, WRVA built a new 5,000-watt transmitter in Mechanicsville, a small

    Blue Network

    The Blue Network, and its immediate predecessor, the NBC Blue Network, were the on-air names of an American radio production and distribution service from 1927 to 1945. Tracing its formal origins back to 1927 as one of the two radio networks owned by the National Broadcasting Company, the Blue Network was born of a divestiture in 1942, arising from anti-trust litigation, and is the direct predecessor of the American Broadcasting Company. The Blue Network can be dated to 1923, when the Radio Corporation of America acquired WJZ, Newark from Westinghouse (which had created the station in 1921) and moved it to New York City in May of that year. When RCA commenced operations of WRC, Washington on August 1, 1923, the root of a network was born, though it did not operate under the name by which it would later become known. Radio historian Elizabeth McLeod states that it would not be until 1924 that the "Radio Group" formally began network operations. The core stations of the "Radio Group" were RCA's stations WJZ and WRC; the Westinghouse station WBZ, then in Springfield, Massachusetts; and WGY, the General Electric station in Schenectady, New York. RCA's principal rival prior to 1926 was

    Detroit Lions

    Detroit Lions

    The Detroit Lions are a professional American football team based in Detroit, Michigan. They are members of the North Division of the National Football Conference (NFC) in the National Football League (NFL), and play their home games at Ford Field in Downtown Detroit. Originally based in Portsmouth, Ohio and called the Portsmouth Spartans, the team began play in 1929 as an independent professional team, one of many such teams in the Ohio and Scioto River valleys. For the 1930 season, the Spartans formally joined the NFL as the other area independents folded because of the Great Depression. Despite success within the NFL, they could not survive in Portsmouth, then the NFL's smallest city. The team was purchased and moved to Detroit for the 1934 season. The Lions have won four NFL Championships, the last in 1957, giving the club the second-longest NFL championship drought behind the Arizona Cardinals. The Lions have not had much success during the Super Bowl era: the Lions are one of four current NFL teams that have yet to qualify for the Super Bowl, and the team is 1-10 in post-season play during that period. The 2008 team became the only team in NFL history to lose all 16 regular

    Sveriges Radio

    Sveriges Radio

    Sveriges Radio AB (SR) – Swedish Radio Ltd – is Sweden's national publicly funded radio broadcaster. The Swedish public-broadcasting system is in many respects modelled after the one used in the United Kingdom, and Sveriges Radio - like Sveriges Television - shares many characteristics with its British counterpart, the BBC. Sveriges Radio is a public limited company, owned by an independent foundation, and funded through a licensing fee determined by the Swedish Parliament. No advertising is permitted. SR's status could be described as that of a quasi-autonomous non-governmental organization. The company was founded on 1 January 1925 as AB Radiotjänst (Radio Service), and was renamed Sveriges Radio in 1957. Sveriges Radio was originally responsible for all broadcasting in Sweden, both radio and television, and hosted the 1975 Eurovision Song Contest. A reorganization in 1979 saw SR become the parent company of four subsidiaries: This structure was dissolved in 1993 with the national and local radio companies merging under the name of the old parent company: Sveriges Radio AB.

    York University Students' Union

    This article is on the University of York Students' Union in England. For the Canadian version, see York Federation of Students.University of York Students' Union (or YUSU) is the students' union for students of the University of York, England. YUSU is currently housed in the Student Centre, (formerly the Daw Suu Student Centre) in Goodricke College. It is often remarked that the title 'Student Centre', rather than the more usual 'Student Union', was created in order to preserve the abbreviation SC on signing, as the building in question first pulled duty as a squash court. Currently it now only houses the Students' Union (YUSU). Founded in 1964 as the York Students Representative Committee, YUSU has evolved considerably over the years. The first sabbatical President was Dave Mahony, elected in 1965 to replace the first President and Chairman, Pip Nayak. Since then the office of President has remained, barring a brief period in 1986 in which the role was termed General Secretary. The current form of executive is comparatively recent, essentially being created by the abolition of the Internal Vice-President and External Vice-President posts in 2000, and their roles being

    Radio AAHS

    Radio AAHS (sometimes misspelled as "Radio Oz") was a radio network managed by the Children's Broadcasting Corporation. Its flagship station was WWTC-AM 1280 in Minneapolis, which broadcast from the former First Federal Bank building at Highway 100 and Excelsior Boulevard in St. Louis Park. At its height in 1996, Radio AAHS had 29 affiliates across the nation. Founder Christopher Dahl had purchased WWTC in 1990 and created an outlet for children's music, specifically targeted at listeners of elementary school age. The musical format had songs from children's films, but also created a niche for songs recorded specifically to entertain children. The programming was driven, in large part, by listener requests, and many of the choices were little known outside that audience. A list of the "Radio AAHS Top 20 Countdown" in the inaugural (March 1995) issue of the network's short-lived magazine, shows the eclectic mix of music. Number one was a cover of the Fine Young Cannibals song, "She Drives Me Crazy", as recorded on the album Muppet Singalong by Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy. The "Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers Theme" was #4, while two original songs by the Olsen twins, "I Just Can't

The company was one of the largest producers and distributors of radio programming in the United States. It broadcast entertainment, news, weather, sports, talk, and traffic programming to about 7,700 radio stations across the United States.

    ARD

    ARD (full name: Arbeitsgemeinschaft der öffentlich-rechtlichen Rundfunkanstalten der Bundesrepublik Deutschland – "Consortium of public-law broadcasting institutions of the Federal Republic of Germany") is a joint organization of Germany's regional public-service broadcasters. It was founded in 1950 in West Germany to represent the common interests of the new, decentralized, post-war broadcasting services — in particular the introduction of a joint television network. The ARD is the world's second largest public broadcaster after the British Broadcasting Corporation, with a budget of €6.3 billion and 23,000 employees. The budget comes primarily from the licence fees required to use radios and TV sets in Germany. For radio and TV reception, the fee is currently €17.98 per month. These fees are not collected directly by the ARD, but by the GEZ, a common organization of the ARD member broadcasters, the second public TV broadcaster ZDF, and Deutschlandradio.

    Radio Disney

    Radio Disney is a radio network based in Burbank, California, which broadcasts music and other content targeted at children and young teenagers under age 16; its format can be described as a youth-targeted contemporary hit radio with heavy emphasis on teen idols. It is a subsidiary of The Walt Disney Company. Radio Disney is formatted like a traditional radio station, featuring prize giveaways (in which listeners can enter via phone, online and since 2008, text message) and occasional in-studio interviews called "Takeovers," which usually occur during the weekday late-afternoon timeslot. Radio Disney was launched on November 18, 1996 (coinciding with the anniversary of the debut of Steamboat Willie's 68th birthday) at 5:58 A.M. EST with the song "Get Ready For This." Their slogan was "We're all ears" that was used heavily on jingles. Radio Disney started with songs that were played on Top-40 stations as well as popular oldies and songs from various cartoon shows and movies. Some media analysts likened the Radio Disney product to a mix of child-friendly artists and contests with music, formatics and pacing borrowed from legendary ABC-owned top 40 stations of the past like WABC or

    CBS Radio Network

    CBS Radio News, historically known as the CBS Radio Network, provides news to more than 1,000 radio stations throughout the United States. The network is owned by CBS Corporation. CBS Radio News is one of the programming services distributed by Dial Global, which acquired the former Westwood One (formerly managed by CBS) in October 2011. It produces and distributes national news, talk, music and special event programs, in addition to local news, weather, video news and other information to radio and television stations as well as traffic reporting services. The network is the oldest unit of the CBS Corporation and traces its roots to CBS's predecessor, United Independent Broadcasters, founded in 1927 with 47 affiliates. The next year, Columbia Records invested in the radio network, which was named the Columbia Phonographic Broadcasting System. Eventually, Columbia pulled its backing from the struggling web. William S. Paley bought a half-interest in what became the Columbia Broadcasting System in 1928 and became its president. (In 1938, CBS bought back Columbia Records.) For more about the network's history, see CBS. Today, CBS Radio News is best known for its news and public

The FM was renamed WXYY and switched to an automated "Super Rock" format. The AM was named "14VOT" and was quite a hit locally with teenagers, playing a tightly-rotated top 20 lineup. By 1980, WXYY had switched to country but was still automated. In 1983, the stations were purchased by Voyager

Fox News Radio also syndicates the following radio programs hosted by its TV personalities: Three other radio programs hosted by Fox News Channel personalities are or were distributed by other companies.
