Salem CommunicationsThe 6-state, 9-city tour with leading Salem Radio Network talent partnering with acclaimed actor Jon Voight means nine events to be held over a narrow six-day period in the run-up to Election Day.

“Salem serves audiences in a number of the states that will determine the course for our country over the next four years,” said David Santrella, president of the radio division at Salem Communications. “We are pleased to create these unique, no-charge events that encourage informed participation in the democratic process,” he said.

From sorting through the polling data to clarifying the real stakes, I am pleased that some of the brightest and the best in the business today are on the SRN team,” said Greg Anderson, President of SRN, the division of Salem that syndicates talk and news to over 1,100 stations across the country. “These events will be a terrific complement to the positive impact they have been making day in, day out throughout this cycle,” he continued.
