Tony Legg, Host of “Rhythm In Pop” and Wendy Lowy Sloane, Host of “Heard Across America” are recent additions to the short form features on Business TalkRadio Network® & Lifestyle TalkRadio Network®
Tony Legg has been a musician and construction worker but the most fun he’s ever had at work started
in 2006 when he graduated from broadcasting school at the age of 43. Starting out behind the scenes
as a talk show producer and board operator, it wasn’t long before management was saying “let’s get
that voice of yours on the air!” The oldest producer/board op at the network was having the time of his
life! After being briefly sidetracked by cancer, Tony’s back with a pop music feature. “Good people,
Good radio, Good times, that about sums up my job nowadays”, Tony says with a smile. The man
with the golden voice is a welcome back edition to Lifestyle TalkRadio Network® reinventing “Pop
Quiz” into the newly named “Rhythm In Pop”. Everything you ever wanted to learn about Pop music
all packaged into an entertaining and musical presentation as only Tony can do!

Wendy Lowy Sloane started her career warming up audiences for Phil Donahue and was quickly hired
as a Producer for the Geraldo Rivera Show. Wendy made nationwide news for her in-depth shows
featuring the OJ Simpson trial and the tragic death of child beauty queen Jon-Benet Ramsey. Wendy
produced Geraldo's weekly Celebrity News shows, which were a hallmark of his daytime show.
Moving on with her career, Wendy landed a key job in radio in New York City and was hired to be the
Executive/on-air Producer for BIG 105 with Danny Bonaduce. As current Host of “What’s Up With
Wendy” heard on Business TalkRadio Network® she now voices and reinvents the old “Heard Around
Town” feature newly named “Heard Across America”. Whether in front of or behind the scenes of
Hollywood Wendy is the voice that truly tells it as it is!

These and many other short form features are available from Business TalkRadio Network®
and Lifestyle TalkRadio Network®.

work with all the existing radio stations to the network as well as forging new relationships with
stations yet to join our networks. “I believe in working with our stations as partners and offering the
best service possible, since by keeping them happy it in turn keeps the hosts, listeners and all others
involved satisfied and happy as well. If you know me and have worked with me you know it is very
important that all stations are treated with respect and understanding of the syndication business. I
understand that it is an honor to be partnered with all current stations, making sure they are informed
of all the latest network news in a proper and timely manner.” states Jon.

is an ever-changing challenge. Over the past fifteen years I have come to rely upon, and appreciate,

are the worst at communicating the problems-solutions-results of interaction between Network and
local station. Jon may possibly be the exception. His continual contact, and genuine concern for his
affiliates, makes doing business through him a solid relationship between trustworthy businesses, that
becomes strong alliances.” Keith Lyons, Vice President Operations, KBNP, Inc. Portland, Oregon.

BUSINESS TALKRADIO AND LIFESTYLE TALKRADIO NETWORKS PARENT COMPANY RENAMED
Michael Metter, President and CEO of the Business TalkRadio Network and Lifestyle TalkRadio Network, has announced a rebranding that results in a new name for the parent company. Blue Star Media Group, Inc. is

the new holding company of the two networks as well as its four owned and operated radio stations. The ownership and management remain the same.

“The new holding company better represents the direction the company is taking as we prepare to launch a third national network that will complement BTRN and LTRN,” said Metter.

“Our growth from one network with 120 affiliates eight years ago to two national radio networks providing programming to more than 1,400 radio stations, along with the four radio stations we own, requires a more distinct characterization of our company,” he added.

The company also owns KNUU in Las Vegas, WLFP in Pittsburgh, WXBR in Boston and WGCH in Stamford/Norwalk, CT.

Metter stressed that there were no management or personnel changes planned for the Stamford, CT based company.

“In fact, we have growth planned in the form of a new national network that we feel will fill a programming void for radio stations across the country,” said Metter.

The Business TalkRadio Network provides 24/7 business and financial programming including the Ray Lucia Show while the Lifestyle TalkRadio Network, which also operates 24/7, offers specialized shows from sports and entertainment to home improvement and travel. Doug Stephan’s Good Day anchors mornings on LTRN.
