WASHINGTON, D.C. - USA Radio Networks today announced its latest addition to its growing number of syndicated programs. Scheduled to begin on June 8, 2015, WASHINGTON WATCH WITH TONY PERKINS will air from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. Eastern Time.
Perkins is President of the Washington, D.C.-based Family Research Council. As a former member of the Louisiana legislature, he is recognized as a legislative pioneer for authoring measures like the nation's first Covenant Marriage law. Perkins also serves as the president of the Council for National Policy an umbrella organization for dozens of conservative organizations that address fiscal, social, and foreign policy issues.
"I'm excited to join the USA Radio Networks at such a critical time for our nation,” said Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council and host of Washington Watch with Tony Perkins.
Unlike any other program in the nation, Washington Watch features live interviews with several U.S. Senators and Members of Congress each week.
“Radio has only become more important to our mission to keep God-fearing Americans informed and equipped to respond to the policy and cultural challenges of our day. We are excited to partner with USA Radio Networks as we advance faith, family and freedom across America."
A veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps, and a former police officer and television news reporter, Tony brings a unique blend of experience and leadership to the airwaves.
"Tony Perkins has been a prominent voice in Washington for years with the Family Research Council," said Tim Maranville, Chief Content Officer at Cross Platform Media Group, parent company to USA Radio Networks. "The important issues he brings will now be available for discussion and debate in the open market through USA Radio Networks."
His daily email, the Washington Update, is sent to tens of thousands of grassroots activists, which helps drive listeners to his program, which will continue to air on American Family Radio.
Sam Hassell, CEO of Cross Platform Media Group, adds "Tony is a valuable piece in our continued accelerated growth at USA Radio Networks. We're happy to welcome his 117 affiliates and look forward to growing our business with him."
Other syndicated content available on USA Radio Networks include THE STEVE DEACE SHOW, DAYBREAK USA with host Angie Austin, and USA Radio News at the top of every broadcast hour every day of the year.
