United Stations Acquires Open House Party

United Stations Radio Networks announced today that it is acquiring the programming assets of syndicated radio producer Radiocraft.  USRN will oversee the production, distribution and affiliate relations efforts for Radiocraft’s entire lineup of programming. USRN had acted as Radiocraft’s marketing partners to the advertising community since March of 2011. The Boston-based Radiocraft has created and produced the popular John Garabedian’s Saturday night Open House Party since 1988. The acquisition was announced jointly by Radiocraft’s Founder and President John Garabedian and USRN’s President/COO Jim Higgins.  Other Radiocraft programming included in the acquisition are The Party Playhouse with Jackson BlueCelebrity Top Ten, featuring a look at the hottest pop culture items of the week, and two other weekly editions of Open House Party one geared for Sunday nights and one formatted for Rhythmic hit music stations.  USRN’s Jim Higgins commented, “At United Stations, we’re all about talent and branding, and John Garabedian has created a fantastic legacy on both of those fronts. As programmers, as a bank of on-air talent, and as a program supplier, John and his Radiocraft team have shaped a great lineup of entertainment shows that all have loyal followings, generate great ratings, and provide a wonderful environment for advertisers. We’re thrilled that Radiocraft’s holdings are now officially and completely part of the USRN family.”  John Garabedian added, “Our superb relationship with the United Stations people made this transaction a natural, and with a new long-term contract locking me in, I can’t imagine anywhere I’d rather be on Saturday night than hosting ‘Open House Party’!”

    I want to know ALL the stations in USA that play OHP every Saturday and Sunday nights (not Late, LATE night but the 6pm to 11pm).
