TRN signs Dr. Laura


Talk Radio Network Ventures (TRNV Inc.) and Take On The Day (TOTD) are joining forces for the syndication management and affiliate marketing of The Dr. Laura Program, hosted by the most listened-to woman in radio broadcasting history, Dr. Laura Schlessinger.

With over 8.25 million weekly listeners in over 40 countries on over 250 affiliates, as well as Armed Forces Radio and Sirius/XM Radio, The program is now in its 16th year in syndication, airing live from Noon to 3:00 p.m. PT. 

Talkers Magazine ranks The Dr. Laura Program as the third most-listened-to show and the number one female-hosted program in the U.S.  She is the author of eleven New York Times bestsellers.  In 1997, Dr. Laura became the only woman to win the Marconi Award for Network/Syndicated Personality of the Year.

TRNV Inc. is the latest entity in the constellation of radio syndication companies operated by CEO Mark Masters. “It is an honor and a pleasure to work with Dr. Laura, Geoff Rich and TOTD,” said Masters. “Dr. Laura’s track record in grabbing and keeping audiences glued to their radios is unparalleled.  She is the industry leader in the advice genre, and her show’s unique appeal and reach continues to grow.  Dr. Laura is both a leading opinion-maker and an advertiser boon.”

“With the addition of The Dr. Laura Program, the TRN companies now have the two most successful syndicated female voices in America, TRNV’s Dr. Laura (Ranked 3rd largest Show) and TRNE’s Laura Ingraham (Ranked 4th largest Show).  This is a reality that we are very excited about, and honored be a part of,” says Phil Boyce, President of Programming for TRN.
