Dial-Global progressive syndicated radio talker Thom Hartmann continues his mission to cover every media platform available. In addition to his Dial-Global syndication Hartman is now a Pacifica affiliated show, providing a 3-hour live and delayed show to Pacifica non-profit and community stations around the world with no commercial content. There is also a TV simulcast of the radio show which appears on Hartmann’s own YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/thomhartmann and was recently picked up by Free Speech TV (on Dish Network satellite TV) with a half hour version of the show in production. The condensed video version will also be offered as a podcast. Last but not least, Air America is clearing Hartmann’s weekend show on it’s Washington affiliate (WZZA 1050) and the new Air America website, re-establishing his relationship with that radio syndication company. The Hartmann show is a classic case of brand extension and Thom is a successful talk talent more than willing to cut non-traditional deals, (in the case of the Pacifica deal) and give up compensation to broaden his reach.
