America’s Radio News Network (ARNN) is preparing to launch yet another 3-hour daily all-news programming block to its planned 15 hours per day of long-form news programming. The next launch is being accelerated due to affiliate demand and current world events. ARNN’s first 3-hour daily block of all news programming, airing weekdays from noon to 3pm ET, was launched on January 24.
The second installment is scheduled to begin March 28 at 3-6pm. The third installment is scheduled from 6-9pm ET will begin May 9. ARNN will provide nine hours back-to-back programming from noon to 9pm ET, of its planned 15 hours a day.
“We cover 10 to 12 stories with 4 to 6 audio actualities each quarter hour, the perfect PPM solution for an A.D.D. world. Stations love the long-form news product so much they are asking for more of it sooner. We are frankly stunned by the demand!” said ARNN President Mark Masters.
