BizTV and BizTalkRadio announced the addition of a new top-of-the-hour news product that airs daily from 9:00 am to 5:05 pm EST.
“We felt there was a void in the marketplace for business news,” said Scott Miller, EVP of BizTV and BizTalkRadio. “There are several great resources for news, but our TV and Radio affiliates wanted a news product that follows the stock market and provides business centered news stories.”
BizTalkNews is a five-minute top-of-the-hour news product that gives affiliates options. Stations can choose to air the entire five minutes or pick the segments they are interested in airing: News Headlines, Market Report/Business Headlines or a segment on Business Stories.
“We wanted to give our affiliates the ability to pick and choose to meet the needs of their viewers or listeners,” said Miller. “This gives them an option to air all five minutes, join the feed for the Market Report and Business Headlines or air the Business Stories later in the same hour.”
Independent News Network, a division of The Media Gateway in Little Rock, Arkansas is producing BizTalkNews. “We are excited to partner with BizTV and BizTalkRadio on this new venture,” said Jeff Lyle, President of The Media Gateway.

I rarely think of the fourth of July as anything but another Holiday. A parade, some fireworks, picnics with watermelons, and pies. Did I mention fire works? One of my favorite memories and a pivotal moment in my youth happened as I watched a pocket full of black cats blowing up in my very own pocket.
Very cool in front of my “girlfriend”, and oh yeah I set her sisters hair on fire trying to be cool with a small bottle rocket. I had watched others casually flip small bottle rockets in the air after lighting it from a punk held in ones teeth. Well, at 14 years old I was ready for such a challenge as lighting and tossing a bottle rocket. So, for my first time ever I lit a rocket tossed it high in the air for safety, only to see it arc over the crowd and land in my girl friend’s sister’s hair styled with flammable hair spray. Best of all! The loud pop right at the finale of the bottle rocket. No fingers ever pointed in my direction so I was stealthy by luck. I disappeared to the watermelon seed-spiting contest. Not too good at that test either.
This weekend is the 4th so happy Fourth of July for all Americans. For reasons no one living can fully appreciate a group of people decided to declare our independence. Since then many more have followed to shape a nation. There has been progress from every generation since the foundation of our country. Many National Pivots are yet to come.
Consider today July 2, what these people who started this defiance of a sovereign Kingdom were thinking. As they no doubt reflected on what they intended to do in the next 48 hours. It had the consequences of death. In fact many did come to that consequence. Some starved on POW boats in the Hudson and came to a harsh end and all sort of war hazards prevailed. I would think to make those determined intentional decisions of our founders must have included a strong faith in God. For who can ponder such things without consideration of God’s role in their destiny? I call them serious historic gamblers who put it all at risk.
Enjoy the Fourth! May greater things come of this Nation. Pray for the days to come.

This weekend, legendary radio personality Casey Kasem passed away.
Jeff Weber, president of BizTalkRadio, remembers Casey:
“One afternoon in 1983, I was working on the air at a radio station I owned out west. We received word that Karen Carpenter had died. I was quickly trying to think of who I could call in the industry for a comment on her passing. Since we aired Casey’s American Top 40 program I thought I’d see if I could reach him through his syndication company. The person I spoke to on the phone said they’d see if they could get a message to him. Sure enough, within half an hour, the phone rang and an operator said “I have a collect call for Jeff Weber from Casey Kasem…will you accept the charges?”
I was thrilled that he was calling back and ran the tape recorder to record my live interview with him for future airing as well. I was very tempted to ask him if he really did call me collect but it wouldn’t have been appropriate! The interview was classic Casey and I still have the tape to this day.”
