Joseph Farah’s WorldNetDaily Radioactive, the daily, nationally syndicated radio show featuring WND’s founder has found a new home beginning Monday, Feb. 7.
A new network, Golden Broadcasters, has been formed with the live, three-hour, drive-time program as the flagship.
The new Dallas-based company will be a full-service network providing programming, radio production, Internet streaming, satellite delivery and sales and affiliate relations. Farah will continue broadcasting from the nation’s capital, Washington, D.C.
Joseph Farah’s WorldNetDaily Radioactive, which has broadcast from coast to coast on some 66 affiliates for the last two years with Radio America, will be the first show delivered by the new enterprise and serve as an anchor for additional programming being developed and recruited.
As in the past, the show will air Monday through Friday from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Eastern with a refeed from 9 p.m. to 12 midnight on ABC Starguide, Transponder 23, Satellite AMC-8.
“This is a very exciting development for me,” said Farah. “I had more than one offer to sign up with existing networks, but partnering with a brand new company, Golden Broadcasters, created specifically to bring this show to millions of new listeners was an opportunity I couldn’t refuse. The talent involved in this endeavor is truly awe-inspiring.”
Golden Broadcasters is headed by Jeff Dorf, a career broadcasting executive who directed two major radio networks and numerous radio stations over a 35-year career.
Joining Dorf as executive vice president is Bruce Marr, most well-known for having “discovered” Rush Limbaugh and being the pivotal broadcaster to launch the king of talk radio’s network career.
Craig Smith, president and founder of Swiss America Trading Company, the country’s premiere gold dealer, has lent his support to the program and network as an adviser and founding sponsor.
They are joined by David M. Bradshaw, writer, producer and marketing consultant, and Edward L. Lubin, a veteran of radio and TV broadcast sales, syndication and production.
“Golden Broadcasters will bring to local radio stations the kind of programming they have been searching for – thought-provoking, topical, issue-oriented shows like Joseph Farah’s, shows that do not insult or alienate the listener,” explained Dorf.
Besides providing the show to local broadcast affiliates in the United States, the network will also make the show available to satellite networks and for Internet streaming direct to listeners around the world.
The show is the only nationally syndicated daily radio program to spring from an Internet content site – WorldNetDaily.com, founded by Farah and his wife, Elizabeth, in 1997.
Farah inherited the time slot nearly two years ago when talk-show host Oliver North retired from radio to focus on his television career with Fox News Channel.
The show has proved popular because of WorldNetDaily’s immense reader base of more than 6 million and because Farah, the editor of the dynamic Internet news resource known for breaking the big stories, combines his unique insights as a daily columnist with 30 years of experience as an intrepid, investigative newsman.
“I will always appreciate Radio America for giving me this invaluable experience in daily broadcasting,” said Farah. “But I believe this show has potential far beyond what we’ve been able to achieve to date.”
Radio America will continue to carry the show through Friday, Feb. 4.
“While I am excited about working with a brand new team at Golden Broadcasters, I know I will miss my old team, particularly the incisive coaching I have received from senior producer Franklin Raff,” said Farah. “I have grown as a radio talk-show host in the last year largely because of his expert advice and the loving and dedicated support he has generously offered me.”
In addition to his daily talk-radio program, Farah serves as editor and chief executive officer of WorldNetDaily, one of the largest news agencies in the world founded specifically for the Internet. He also writes a daily column for WorldNetDaily and a weekly column for Creators Syndicate.
Farah is also founder of WND Books, a three-year-old book-publishing enterprise that has produced a remarkable string of best-selling current affairs titles, including Michael Savage’s “The Savage Nation” and “The Enemy Within,” Jayna Davis’ “The Third Terrorist” and Wayne LaPierre’s “Guns, Freedom and Terrorism.”
Prior to his founding of WorldNetDaily, Farah made a name for himself with traditional daily newspapers – running the Sacramento Union, directing the news operation of the Los Angeles Herald Examiner for nine years and serving as editor in chief of a group of California dailies and weeklies.
He has written for such publications as the Wall Street Journal, Jerusalem Post, National Review, TV Guide, Reason, Los Angeles Times, Boston Globe, San Francisco Chronicle, Chicago Sun-Times and a host of other national, international and regional publications.
Farah was the co-author, with U.S. Rep. Richard Pombo, of “This Land is Our Land” (1996), and in 1994 collaborated with Rush Limbaugh on the No. 1 New York Times best-seller “See, I Told You So.” His newest book is “Taking America Back,” which is a familiar theme to regular listeners of the hard-hitting, pull-no-punches radio show.
