United Stations Radio Networks (USRN) announced today that it will be handling the distribution of two programs hosted by Radio Hall of Famer Dick Bartley. The association reunites Bartley with USRN, the brand under which the syndication veteran’s national programming grew and thrived two decades ago. The partnership between Bartley’s DB Productions and USRN becomes effective April 1, and under the agreement USRN will market and distribute Bartley’s two long-running, weekend radio programs: “Rock & Roll’s Greatest Hits,” a five-hour request-based program that has traditionally aired on Saturday nights, and “The Classic Countdown Show,” a four-hour, theme-based program that recaps the hits that dominated the charts in various years or seasons. Together, these programs air on over 200 stations. USRN executive VP of programming Andy Denemark says, “It’s not every day that a broadcaster as beloved and as talented as Dick Bartley becomes available, and we’re thrilled to be able to add his programs to our lineup.”
