American Comedy Network Closes Shop


In a posting to the company Facebook page titled, "A Final Note to Our Valued Customers," GM Joel Graham writes, "Today I feel a great sense of sadness as American Comedy Network closes the doors for good and we post our final DailyPrep. On behalf of the ACN staff - Darryl Knight, Mark Dahl and Mike Hand - I would like to offer you our sincerest gratitude for trusting ACN and making us part of your show. American Comedy Network pioneered the radio comedy prep business in June of 1983 when the service was launched by Andy Goodman, “The Real” Bob James, Dale “The Voiceman” Reeves, Michelle George, and David Lawrence. We owe them a huge debt of gratitude for paving the way for the next thirty years." Read the full post HERE

I remember hating other personalities who had access to ACN...when I did not. When I was hosting mornings at "Power 1450"/KKPW (Tucson) I was given ACN...and loved it!

(Later, I was one of the first to use the Satellite Comedy Network/SCN...)
