USA Radio Networks Saddles Popular ‘Animal Radio’ Program for National Syndication

RALEIGH, NC. Feb. 18, 2015 |Christian News Service| – America’s most-listened-to pet talk show has signed with USA Radio Networks as its new syndication partner. Scheduled to begin on March 7, 2015, ANIMAL RADIO will air from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Eastern Time.

Animal Radio” was born from a morning show stunt to raise money for the SPCA. After a week of living in a doghouse, former Los Angeles morning personality Hal Abrams created a highly-listener interactive program featuring celebrity guests and the pet industry’s most recognized pet experts.


“This is a wonderful opportunity to join the rebirth of an iconic network, and grow Animal Radio,” said Hal Abrams.

Launching on L.A.’s KOST 103.5, the show quickly gained traction, picking up AM and FM affiliates from every niche, proving that companion animals connect with audiences that listen to Adult Contemporary, Oldies and Country, and of course News/Talk formats across the U.S.

“Now on USA Radio Networks, this a great way for any station to claim their piece of the 55 BILLION dollar pet sector,” said Bob Roth, General Manager of Animal Radio.

Animal Radio has become a home for celebrities and experts alike. Since the show’s inception, it has played host to over 1000 celebs with legendary interviews from the likes of Glenn Close, Jane Lynch, Emmylou Harris and Jenna Fischer.

Hal Abrams and Judy Francis are co-hosts of the show.

“This fun weekend show is sure to delight pet owners and connect with radio audiences, said Tim Maranville, Chief Content Officer at Cross Platform Media Group, parent company to USA Radio Networks.
