THE Q Syndicates and Adds to Already Impressive Position!
1420 WINI picks up Moderate/Liberal Radio Show to add to a Conservative Line-up
SAINT LOUIS, MO Feb. 11, 2013/Syndicate Entertainment Group/- It was announced today that Moderate/Liberal radio program, THE Q, was picked up by 1420 WINI-AM of Southern Illinois to add to their already stellar grouping of programs. The political based current event program will play along side opposite thinking programs such as Glenn Beck and Michael Smerconish.THE Q debuted in January of 2012 on 1280 KYRO-AM out of Moscow Mills, MO and quickly gained a strong following in a primarily conservative market. Hosted by radio veteran Mark Bland and newcomer Justin Deming, the show focuses on discussing current events and politics from a primarily Liberal based view with some comedy added for flare (think Daily Show).
The show started as a podcast in 2010 and slowly developed its audience via downloading until it became powerful enough to garner attention from terrestrial radio. In January of 2012, 1280 and Bland inked a deal to transmit the show into the St. Louis, Mo market for 2 hours on Saturdays from Noon - 2:00p.m. (CST) Over the past year the show fanbase has doubled in size and has garnered the attention of typical liberal counterparts such as Breitbart.com and many other outlets. Weekly the show broadcasts to an average of 10,000 national listeners that either stream, listen through traditional means or download the program from the website. Each week, Mark and Justin focuses on different topics, some being very controversial in nature and allow for people to call in and voice their opinion openly. "I feel that the listeners love Mark being more "swing voter" in his style and me being the straight up liberal," says Justin. "People don't want to just hear what they believe, they love to be challenged and love a good debate...we provide that."
THE Q will broadcast every Saturday on 1420 WINI-AM and www.newstalk1420wini.com at 10:00 am (CST).
