(DECEMBER 2012) – Envision Radio Networks® is proud to announce Paul Harris, a popular major market talk veteran, will anchor America Weekend, the new live, ratings-friendly programming alternative to low-rated brokered shows and “Best Of” programs. Harris, who has been heard in markets including New York City, Chicago, Philadelphia, Washington DC and Hartford, spent the last decade in St. Louis on KTRS and KMOX and will be heard on America Weekend both Saturday and Sunday from 9 am to 12 Noon eastern.
“I’m excited about launching America Weekend to give both affiliates and listeners something more compelling, with great stories, interesting interviews, and my own perspective on what’s happening,” said Harris.
“I’m thrilled to be working with Paul again,” added America Weekend Executive Producer Kipper McGee, who worked with Harris in St. Louis and at WLS/Chicago. “We will be announcing the remainder of the America Weekend lineup in coming weeks, and look forward to demonstrating that News/Talk radio can enjoy weekend ratings and revenues!”
Harris has won six Achievement In Radio Awards, been named one of the most influential talk radio hosts in America, broadcast live from around the world (including two Super Bowls and the Olympics), and advocated diplomacy between USA and Russia by being the first American radio show to broadcast live from the Soviet Union to the United States and then back again via Radio Moscow.
