Deace Quickly Hits 50 Affiliate Mark


After only one year in syndication, the Steve Deace Show is now heard on over 50 affiliates. The 39-year-old Deace is the former top-rated afternoon drive host at 1040-WHO in Des Moines. His show airs weeknights from 9-Midnight ET and is heard in Philadelphia, Atlanta, and 16 other top 100 markets. Deace said, "When I left the award-winning and legendary WHO last year to find out what other opportunities were out there, I had no idea this was possible."

"I know pretty much everybody in this industry, and I have had many of them tell me it's unheard of for an independently syndicated radio program to clear 50 affiliates in its first year, especially one hosted by a fresh face," said Stu Epperson, Jr., who is Deace's syndication partner. "That's a testament to Deace's talent and the on-air chemistry he has with his female sidekicks, Jen and Rebekah. It's just an awesome show that has fun and stands for freedom and liberty at a time when this country so desperately needs it."

Steve Deace is a fantastic guy with a message that he will not compromise. I have known Steve for quite some time and I have a tremendous respect for him and his radio program team. His unique style, and I do mean unique, his wit and his worldview make this one of the most entertaining and informative programs currently on the air. Congratulations Steve and I pray for your continued success!
