Network Expanding its Monday through Friday Talent Options for Radio Stations
United Stations, an independent leader in original network radio programming, today announced a partnership with veteran programmer Tim Richards and his new company Tim Richards Media.
Tim will act as lead strategist for all of the Monday thru Friday daypart shows that United Stations offers through their growing portfolio of talent in their Dayparts on Demand services roster. In his new role, Tim is consulting with the talent and production staff on content ideas and show structure.
He is also assisting with the presentation, delivery and marketing of the programming as well as scouting new talent to bring under the United Stations Media Networks banner. This announcement comes from the company’s SVP/Content & Affiliation, Stefan Jones in New York.
Tim Richards is a senior level broadcast executive who arrives at USRN with three decades of industry experience. Tim specializes in talent coaching and development, building winning station brands and leading great talent to ratings and revenue success.
He’s a “connector” with an innate ability to identify and nurture talent both on and off the air. He’s worked with some of the biggest personalities in the industry including Mojo in the Morning, Mancow, Johnjay & Rich and The Morning Mess, as well as some of the biggest station brands, including “Mix” in Boston, Q101/Chicago, WKQI/Detroit, KZZP and KMLE in Phoenix and many more.
Tim is a strategist with an excellent grasp of PPM ratings methodology and winning tactics, and he’s been driven to succeed throughout his career. He received his bachelor’s degree from Columbia College, Chicago where he graduated with honors at the age of 20.
In announcing the addition of Tim Richards to the United Stations team, Stefan Jones commented, “If a radio station is going to trust a Monday through Friday daypart to syndication, it has to bring something special to the table.
I have worked at selling programming to Tim for decades, as did all of my competitors. When he placed my brands on his stations, it was because it made sense, and when he didn’t, it also made sense.
What better person to help refine our offerings to make sure that we deliver the best programming options to radio stations. It is a perfect fit, and we are so pleased to have his talents working with United Stations.”
Tim added, “Stefan, Andy Denemark and the United Stations roster of talent are impressive. They continue to innovate in a time where the industry needs great, scalable and affordable talent across the board. It’s an honor to work with this team to grow their audience and talent portfolio.”
