That’s the urgent mission of America’s Morning News, a compelling mix of insider politics and heartland spirit, broadcast live from Washington. Anchors John McCaslin and Amy Holmes offer a vibrant forum for newsmakers — bolstered by Washington Times journalists, the reach and prowess of both Talk Radio Network and our local stations. The time and the mix is right for America’s Morning News, and we take that responsibility very, very seriously at The Times.”

New affiliates are already talking about AMN and the show’s ability to break stories as they happen on a near-daily basis. Here is what they are saying. Metro Radio is proud to have a new voice in the Nation’s Capital. The conservative news/talk format with ‘The Truth’ tells it like it is!

Brian Jennings, VP of Programming for Alpha Broadcasting, KXFD, Portland, OR says, “Americas Morning News is rock solid and fills the need for a hard-hitting, national, morning news show. We are pleased to be an affiliate at Freedom 970 KXFD in Portland.”

Affiliates in Top Metro Markets all across the U.S. are responding to AMN’s success as a syndicated morning news program.

“KFWB is delighted to add America’s Morning News to our new talk lineup. America’s Morning News is a fast paced and aggressive look at each day’s news . . . . It’s a perfect complement to the KFWB local news team,” says Ed Krampf, Former Market Manager, CBS Radio, Los Angeles.

Jack Swanson, Operations Manager at KSFO-AM, San Francisco, says, “Radio’s easy when you listen. We listened to our advertisers who wanted to sponsor more news programming. We listened to the KSFO audience who wanted news that wasn’t more of the mainstream media and came from a source they could trust. America’s Morning News is a winning combination that is going to be a monster hit across the nation!”
