Watkins Joins TRN To Head New Business Development
Jim Watkins previously programmed News/Talk stations for Clear Channel and Meridian Broadcasting. He also served as producer for Michael Savage, Mike Gallagher, and Barry Farber. Watkins will oversee new business development and growth-strategy projects for the TRN Networks that distributes Andrea Tantaros, Jerry Doyle, Rusty Humphries, Erich “Mancow” Muller, Monica Crowley, America’s Morning News, Michio Kaku, Louie Anderson, Roy Masters, and America’s Radio News Network.
CEO Mark Masters is thrilled to have Watkins leading his affiliate department at this most crucial time. Says Masters, “Jim is deeply entrenched in Talk Radio, and has developed alliances with key programmers across the country.” Mark added, “As the country ramps up into the mid-term elections, Talk Radio has never been more vital to facilitating the national debate. Jim really understands the vitality of Talk Radio better than most people in the industry today.”
