    From Talkers: Chatting it Up with the President.**TALKERS*publisher*Michael Harrison*(right) is pictured engaged in a conversation with*President Trump*(left) last night (2/18) at a special Presidents Day Weekend dinner at the Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, Florida.* Harrison and his wife*Bernadette Duncan*were the guests of*Newsmax*CEO*Christopher Ruddy, a personal friend of the Trump family.* Trump was joined at the dinner by First Lady*Melania Trump*and his children*Tiffany Trump*and*Donald Trump*Jr.*as well as select friends and White House Chief of Staff*John Kelly.* Harrison reported back to*TALKERS, “Trump was basically in a solemn mood, the weight of the Parkland shooting was obviously on his mind and the breaking story about the Russian election meddling operation was swirling in the air.* However, a lot of the conversation was purely social.* It was interesting seeing the President – amazingly relaxed and informal – among personal friends, associates and family…away from the press.* Up close, he has a snarky sense of humor, like a Millennial, that rivals the best of his comedic media critics.”* Harrison added, “It is clear that Chris Ruddy and*Newsmax*are held in extremely high regard by this administration.* If you recall, Newsmax was one of the earliest supporters of Trump.* They even ran a cover story speculating on the prospect of a Trump GOP candidacy more than a year before he announced his intentions to run.” iHeartMedia Strikes Deal for UConn Athletics in Hartford. On Friday, TALKERS magazine reported that University of Connecticut sports play-by-play is leaving Entercom’s WTIC-AM, Hartford at the end of this basketball season after a 26-year relationship.* The impression, based on Entercom Hartford market manager Phil Zachary’s comment that he “couldn’t justify what they were seeking when compared to more successful partnerships Entercom enjoys with elite Power 5 institutions” is that the two sides couldn’t come together on the cost of the rights from rights-holder IMG Radio Networks.* But, Zachary subsequently spoke with the Manchester Journal Inquirer and it appears money was not the primary issues.* He told the paper, “The school felt the conservative programming that WTIC airs is at odds with the best interest of the university.* WTIC has a successful programming recipe. We’re not going to change it just to have two hours of sports programming at night.”* To that end, the university has struck a new 10-year deal with iHeartMedia to air UConn Huskies games on sports talk WUCS “97.9 ESPN.”* This new deal provides for pre- and post-game shows as well as the “UConn Women’s Basketball Coach’s Radio Show with Geno Auriemma,” the “UConn Men’s Basketball Coach’s Radio Show with Kevin Ollie,” “UConn Football Coach’s Radio Show with Randy Edsall,” and the “UConn Hockey Coach’s Radio Show with Michael Cavanaugh.”* iHeartMedia region president Steve Honeycomb says, “This partnership joins three iconic brands.* Having UConn sports on iHeartMedia’s ‘97.9 ESPN’ has been our long-term goal.* This is the perfect partnership and offers even more entertaining programming for UConn Nation.” Invite to Speak at Radio Week Africa Turns into Money-Losing Odyssey.* U.K. talk show host Graham Mack reports to TALKERS about his bizarre experience being “hired” to speak at last week’s Radio Week Africa conference that took place at the Imperial Royale Hotel in Kampala, Uganda.* Well, Mack never went to Uganda to speak at the conference because, as he puts it, even though the invitation to be a paid speaker smacked of one of those emails from a Nigerian prince who wants to give his money away and, he responded to the inquiry and although he was hired to speak, the result was the same as the Nigerian prince email – he never saw a shilling.* In fact, he lost about £350 in medical bills for vaccinations etc.* Mack – who hosts the morning show on “BOB FM” that serves London’s “Home Counties” – learned that he’s not the only radio expert who was promised a fee and paid expenses only to find it hard to actually get paid.* American consultants Valerie Geller and Sean Ross found themselves in the same boat.* Mack tells TALKERS what the conference organizers are really up to.* “It looks like what this conference does is book radio people from all over the world to speak at their conference, agree to pay them a fee, provide flights and accommodation, and then, after they’ve sold tickets at $125 a piece they cancel the speakers (or in a lot of cases, including mine, they just stop returning phone calls and emails) but leave their names and picture on their website until after the conference has started.”* Read Mack’s blog about his travails here. Florida School Massacre Aftermath, Russian Election Meddling, New Manafort Problems, Trump on Oprah Presidential Run, Iran Nuke Deal Violation Allegations, Ingraham vs LeBron, Black Panther Film, Winter Olympics, and NBA All Star Game/Fergie’s National Anthem Rendition Among Top News/Talk Stories Over the Weekend.* The aftermath of the Parkland, Florida school massacre, including gun control issues and failures at the FBI; the controversy over allegations Russian hackers have and are still attempting to meddle in U.S. elections; former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort is accused of bank fraud; President Trump’s tweet about Oprah Winfrey possibly challenging him in 2020; Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech alleging proof Iran has violated its nuclear deal by selling weapons; talk host Laura Ingraham’s “shut up and dribble” attack on LeBron James after his criticism of President Trump; the Black Panther film’s weekend success; the PyeongChang Winter Olympics; and the NBA All-Star Game were some of the most-talked-about stories on news/talk radio over the weekend, according to ongoing research from TALKERS magazine.

    From Radio Insight: From RadioInsight FCC ActionsFour previously dismissed translator applications from the July 2017 filing window have been reinstated. Township Media's AAA "Sun Radio" 1490 KTSN Austin TX (96.1), Southern Broadcast Media's Oldies 980 WTOB Winston-Salem NC (100.7), WJBW LLC's Haitian "Radio Azure" 1000 WJBW Jupiter FL (93.7 West Palm Beach), and American Media Investment's Gospel "1450 The Dove" KQYX Galena KS (92.9 Joplin MO) all had their applications dismissed last September because those licenses were associated with applications done during the 2016 250 mile waiver period. But those applications were all dismissed. As the AM Revitalization rules specify one new translator per AM license and not one application per license, all have been reinstated. The FCC has opened a Proposed Rule Making for amending the Table of Allotments to add a new Class A on 97.3 in Connerville OK. The Chickasaw Nation made the proposal to add the allotment and seeks to gain Tribal Priority for the allocation.

    From Radio Insight: From RadioInsight The University of Connecticut is leaving Entercom News/Talk 1080 WTIC Hartford after 26 years as IMG has signed a ten year deal with iHeartMedia Sports “97.9 ESPN” WUCS Windsor Locks to take over as its rights holders for football, mens hockey, and mens and womens basketball starting in with the Fall 2018 school year. WUCS will also carry select Olympic sports from the university and ancillary programming including the UConn Women’s Basketball Coach’s Radio Show with Geno Auriemma, the UConn Men’s Basketball Coach’s Radio Show with Kevin Ollie, UConn Football Coach’s Radio Show with Randy Edsall, and the UConn Hockey Coach’s Radio Show with Michael Cavanaugh. IMG today announced a transformative 10-year, multimillion-dollar partnership with iHeartMedia and 97.9 ESPN, Hartford’s Sport Station, to serve as the Home of the UConn Huskies. 97.9 ESPN will become the new home for the UConn-IMG Radio Network beginning in the 2018-19 academic year. Following the conclusion of the current UConn athletic seasons, it will serve as the exclusive terrestrial radio home for UConn Athletics airing regular season and post-season play-by-play for football, men’s and women’s basketball, and men’s hockey. Additionally, iHeartMedia plans to broadcast select UConn Olympic sports contests. “Our new relationship with iHeartMedia and 97.9 ESPN provides UConn Athletics with a powerful reach and the prospect of building an extensive affiliate network throughout the state and the Northeast,” director of athletics David Benedict said. “Our new partnership with a dedicated sports platform hosted by the most powerful sports and media company in the country, will offer fans and listeners more opportunities to interact with our teams and coaches.” The relationship between the UConn-IMG Radio Network and 97.9 ESPN will also include pre- and post-game shows as well as the UConn Women’s Basketball Coach’s Radio Show with Geno Auriemma, the UConn Men’s Basketball Coach’s Radio Show with Kevin Ollie, UConn Football Coach’s Radio Show with Randy Edsall, and the UConn Hockey Coach’s Radio Show with Michael Cavanaugh. “This partnership joins three iconic brands,” said Steve Honeycomb, Region President for iHeartMedia. “Having UConn sports on iHeartMedia’s 97.9 ESPN has been our long-term goal. This is the perfect partnership and offers even more entertaining programming for UConn Nation.” In the event of conflicting game schedules, iHeartMedia will broadcast UConn Athletics events on an affiliate station. IMG also provides fans a variety of ways to follow UConn Athletics audio broadcasts including on their mobile device with the Tunein App and on satellite radio via partnerships with Sirius/XM radio. iHeartMedia the leading media outlet in the Hartford market with multiple platforms, including its broadcast stations; live events; data; and its digital businesses and platforms, including mobile, social and its own iHeartRadio, the free all-in-one digital music, podcasting and live streaming radio service – with more than 1.7 billion app downloads and 110 million registered users. “We couldn’t be happier about teaming up with the University of Connecticut Athletics and finally having UConn sports on our station,” said Ben Darnell, Program Director for 97.9 ESPN. No decisions have been made related to on-air talent for UConn Athletics broadcasts on iHeartMedia Hartford. IMG is the exclusive multimedia rights holder for UConn Athletics.

    From Radio Insight: From RadioInsight A change at Entercom CHR "Energy 97.3" KEGY San Diego is coming closer and closer to fruition. Morning hosts Sean 'Sonic' Leckie and Tonya Gonzalez are off the air this morning with night host Marvy J filling in and making allusions to imminent changes coming. Midday host Alexia recently shifted to nights at Alternative "Alt 94.9" KBZT. KEGY was moved off of 103.7 to 97.3 on the day its merger with CBS Radio closed in November after a weekend of being online only. That led to a sharp drop from a 2.2 share in the November PPM monthly to a 1.0 in the following two books. While the expectation has been a flip to Sports to pair with Entercom's carriage of the San Diego Padres (which were on KBZT last season), it now seems like a move to a Sports leaning Hot Talk position. Former "Mighty 1090" XEPRS morning host Dan Sileo, who stated last month he was moving to another station in the market, confirmed yesterday he will be heading to Entercom with "the ability to talk about anything". https://twitter.com/DanSileoShow/status/964285398045270017 Exclusive Domain Insight on the new branding for 97.3 and other programming details follows for RadioInsight Premium subscribers: The post Energy 97.3 Draining Out Of San Diego appeared first on RadioInsight. more
