Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) June 26, 2008
The nationally syndicated "Allen Hunt Show," talk radio's only program that talks about real life issues and the impact of faith on them, announced a dramatic listening increase for the most recent Arbitron ratings release. These new audiences hear a talk show that provides a fresh take on relevant topics influencing their everyday lives.
Two of the show's syndicated markets, WSB Atlanta and WHIO Dayton, Ohio have seen a significant growth in numbers of listeners between the ages of 35 and 64. During the rating period between fall 2007 and winter 2008, The Allen Hunt Show's audience increased 237 percent at WHIO in Dayton, Ohio, and at WSB Atlanta, the show' saw a 218 percent increase in audience. The show's rapid growth has expanded syndication to 14 states, with several new markets to be announced in the near future.
"I am not shocked about the massive increase in ratings for Allen Hunt's show," said Nick Roberts, program director at CXR Dayton. "The reaction from the local market has been incredible. Monday morning I look forward to comments about his program - rare you see that for a weekend talk show."
One explanation for the shows growing success stems from the way Hunt strongly connects with listeners talking on real life issues from a faith perspective. According to a recent Gallup poll, eight in ten Americans say faith plays a significant role in their lives, and the show's strong success is attributed in part to bringing the "f-word" (faith) to mainstream talk radio.
The independently-syndicated Allen Hunt Show is now heard in more than twenty markets nationwide and broadcasts live on both Saturday and Sunday nights, including WSB Atlanta; WBT Charlotte, N.C.; KTTH, Seattle, Wash.; KRMG Tulsa, Okla.; KFYO Lubbock, Texas; WFLA Tampa, Florida; and WHIO, Dayton, Ohio.
