Well-rested and back in the weekly groove after another week of stellar Masters® radio coverage excellence and a little vacation time, John Patrick is ready to expand his network of radio stations and offer network sponsorships. "We have built some amazing and rewarding relationships with a myriad of wonderful folks throughout the professions of golf and radio broadcasting," explains the award-winning host of The Augusta Golf Show with John Patrick, named "Best Radio Golf Show In America" in 2012, 2014, and 2015 by ING (The International Network of Golf ). "Many people from all around the country have asked me why I wasn't on the air in their city, so we decided to fix that."
Opportunities for Show Sponsors
Mr. Patrick has partnered with Augusta-based ClarionSouth Communications to help him grow his 10-station network into a 150-station network by July 1st, 2018. The one-hour program regularly features in-depth interviews with legendary players, such as Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, Lee Trevino, Annika Sorenstam and more; some of today's best, including Jason Day, Rickie Fowler, Matt Kuchar, Jim Furyk, Paula Creamer, and others; plus some of John's fellow broadcasters who are the best to ever cover the game: Jack Whitaker, Jim Nantz, Johnny Miller, Ken Venturi, and more.
The program's format allows national sponsors to purchase up to four minutes of broadcast time per hour-long show (either four :60 commercials or eight :30 commercials, or any combination thereof) as part of a value-added sponsorship package that includes a banner ad on the show's Web site plus social media endorsements and sponsored messages. "The sponsors who climb on board early will enjoy a multitude of bonuses we may not be able to provide at no charge further along in our expansion," says Bert Dean, CEO of ClarionSouth Communications, the firm handling the program's syndication and sponsorship sales."With his encyclopedic knowledge of golf and love of the game, John Patrick bleeds fairway green and is the consummate radio broadcasting professional. That's an unbeatable combination that promises to pack a powerful, positive marketing punch for participating sponsors."
Opportunities for Radio Stations
Golfers, as a group nationwide, are some of the best-educated, active, affluent consumers in the nation. And they tend to be amazingly consistent in playing, listening to, and watching the game they love. Men and women golfers across North America invest billions upon billions of dollars per year in golf equipment, golf vacations, greens and cart fees, club memberships, golf lessons, and tournament tickets. These same golf enthusiasts also purchase automobiles, homes, food, beverages, healthcare insurance, life insurance---just like everyone else. News/Talk/Sports radio stations with broadcast signals that cover their market area and have a non-profitable hour of programming time available can secure the rights to broadcast The Augusta Golf Show with John Patrick on a first-come/first-served basis. The program's format allows local stations to sell up to eleven minutes of commercial time in their respective markets. (Some restrictions may apply.) John will also produce a two-minute weekday "Augusta Golf Show" feature with a :30 slot available for network sponsors and a :30 slot available for local advertisers.
Potential stations and network sponsors are invited to contact Bert Dean for more information. (Phone 706-339-1227)
