TORONTO, Ont. — Trucknews.com, a Transportation Media property, is partnering with Alexis Broadcasting to produce a weekly trucking radio and talk program, available online.
Trucker Radio News & Talk will expand upon the current Trucker Radio program that airs weekly on more than 30 AM and FM radio stations across Canada and in the US, as well as online. It will delve more deeply into timely topics, featuring a host of industry guests including Truck News personalities such as editor James Menzies, on-road editor Harry Rudolfs, and columnists Al Goodhall, Karen Bowen and others.
“Think of it as an audio version of Truck News,” said Stan Campbell, owner of Alexis Broadcasting, who will host the new show.
The show will be available beginning Jan. 9 on Trucknews.com and on a new site (visit www.TruckerRadioTalk.com for updates while the new site is being created).
“After eight years on the air on terrestrial radio stations across Canada with the Trucker Radio Show, we are excited to be able to expand and reach out solely to the trucking industry with a Canadian transportation news and talk program online where industry folks can hear the latest news and commentary whenever and wherever they want on their schedule,” Campbell said. “We are proud to be partnered with Truck News, who will provide most of the news content for the show. Our guest list will include industry movers and shakers and those on the front lines. Think of it as an audio version of Truck News.”
Making news and commentary on the industry’s hottest topics available on radio is part of Transportation Media’s mandate to be available to its Canada-wide audience on a variety of platforms, said publisher and editorial director Lou Smyrlis.
“Whether it’s print, WebTV, terrestrial radio or this new approach, online radio, Canada’s largest trucking media team is ready to engage with its audience in whichever medium it prefers. We look forward to building on our long relationship with Stan Campbell and Alexis Broadcasting with this new venture,” Smyrlis said.
