BizTV and BizTalkRadio welcome BizTalkNews

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.

Jeff Weber remembers Casey Kasem

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.”
