United Stations Radio
Networks, (USRN), an independent leader in the creation
and marketing of network radio programming, announced that
it has signed an agreement to sell national network
commercial time for two popular Latin format programs,
Pocos Pero Locos and Subelo! Reggaeton Radio.
Radio Syndicate, the Los Angeles-based company that produces
the two programs, will continue to provide affiliate relations
for the shows. United Stations EVP/General Manager Jim Higgins
made the announcement today from the company’s New York
Pocos Pero Locos is hosted by radio personalities Khool Aid
and Edward ”E-Dub” Rios. The three-hour weekly program, which
airs on nearly 40 stations nationally features artists like
Lil Rob, Spanish Fly, NB Ridaz and Chingo Bling. Aside from
hosting Pocos Pero Locos, Khool Aid can be heard during
middays on Power 106 (KPWR), the top-rated rhythmic radio
station in Los Angeles. The program’s other host, E-Dub, is a
well-known record producer and DJ who became involved in music
production in his early teen years.
Subelo! Reggaeton Radio is a weekly two-hour show hosted by DJ
Kazzanova and is the country’s first nationally syndicated
Reggaeton radio program. Featuring artists like Tego Calderon,
Daddy Yankee, Ivy Queen, Don Omar and Voltio the music on
Subelo! is primarily in Spanish and the show is hosted in
English. DJ Kazzanova started “El Reggaeton de New York Show,”
what has now evolved into New York’s first and only 24-hour
Reggaeton radio station, La Kalle 105.9 (WCAA).
“Radio Syndicate is thrilled about our partnership with United
Stations,” E-Dub explained. “This new relationship will help
Radio Syndicate focus on developing new programs.”
"United Stations has already committed to Spanish format
stations with our Customized Spanish Comedy and Launch en
Español Prep offerings, as well as two long form programs we
produce, El Pique and The Red Zone,” noted USRN’s Higgins.
“Our association with Radio Syndicate and E-Dub provides USRN
with two additional weekly programs already cleared on highly
rated stations in top markets, and is a great fit with our
plan to offer advertisers a standalone USRN Spanish Network.
This association gives us a much bigger footprint in a radio
format and demographic trend that is en fuego!"
Radio Syndicate, Inc. is the country’s first radio syndication
company devoted to providing programs that target the 12-34
Hispanic demographic. The company was founded by Edward
“E-Dub” Rios, and is based in Los Angeles.
