The Black Information Network brand is expanding, iHeartMedia announced last week. 

BIN, which was launched as a 24-hour news operation dedicated to covering the Black community, will now be heard in Jacksonville, Florida on BIN 104.1 FM.

“We are thrilled to have the BIN: Black Information Network expand its reach across the country,” BIN president Tony Coles said. “We are honored to welcome the Jacksonville market, a community with a deep and rich Black heritage.”

Last June, iHeartMedia debuted BIN on 15 stations and along the company’s vast audio streaming service. 

“BIN takes pride in being the most trusted source for both local and national news in the Black community, and Jacksonville deserves a full-time news service by and for the Black community,” said Coles.

“So, who’s the real ‘threat to democracy’?”

Earlier this week, Tucker Carlson announced a nationwide tour of live events that included conservative guests like Glenn Beck. Now, the nationally syndicated radio host is claiming that CNN attempted to get the tour shut down.

In a post to X, Beck alleged that CNN tried to interfere in the tour by pushing Ticketmaster — who is handling all ticket sales for the events — to end its relationship with the conservative firebrand.

“After the announcement of Tucker’s tour with ‘dangerous’ guests like me, CNN tried to bully Ticketmaster & arenas into canceling him,” Beck asserted. “For SPEECH. THAT. HASN’T. HAPPENED. So, who’s the real ‘threat to democracy’? Tucker or the Saul Alinsky activists pretending to be journalists?”

Beck failed to elaborate on what steps CNN took in its attempt to “bully” the ticket platform into severing its ties with Carlson.

Tucker Carlson Live will feature a series of live programs where the former cable news host will be joined by a rotating group of fellow conservative commentators in the run-up to the 2024 presidential election.

Carlson has announced 10 tour dates in September in cities like Phoenix, Los Angeles, Tulsa, Kansas City, and Milwaukee, among others. Beck insinuated in his post he will be a guest at one of Carlson’s tour stops, but has not been announced as one. However, the former Fox News host has yet to announce a special guest for his stop on Wednesday, September 18th in a suburb of Houston, Texas. Glenn Beck is based in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex.

The Other Side of Midnight with Frank Morano has been added to the daily lineup at a pair of Audacy news/talk stations, 830 WCCO in Minneapolis and KDWN in Las Vegas.

The program, which originates from New York news/talk station 77 WABC, airs live from 1-5 AM ET.

“I’m incredibly grateful to be on both of these great radio stations. I’ve dreamt of being on the radio in Minnesota ever since Jesse Ventura ran for Governor. It’s great to be on a station that has so many independent thinkers,” said Morano.

He added his excitement for being added to the KDWN lineup by saying, “I’m absolutely thrilled to be on the air in Las Vegas, a 24/7 city. It’s great to talk to an audience in a city that’s up all night.”

“We’re thrilled to add these two great affiliates to The Red Apple Audio Networks,” added Red Apple Media and 77 WABC President Chad Lopez. “Listeners tell us they can’t go to sleep because stay up to hear what Frank is going to say next!”

In addition to now being heard in Minneapolis and Las Vegas, overnight program hosted by Frank Morano is also part of lineups at KMOX in St. Louis, WCBM in Baltimore, and WFDF in Detroit, among others.

77 WABC has announced that Dominic Carter will take over the 3-4 PM timeslot previously helmed by Rudy Giuliani in the station’s daily lineup.

Carter will continue to host his late-night program from Midnight to 1 AM on weekdays and 11 PM to midnight on Sundays, in addition to his new 3 PM hour on the New York news/talk station.

“I’m excited about hosting an afternoon slot and grateful for the trust that Mr. Catsimatidis and Chad Lopez have shown in me,” said Carter. “It’s an honor to serve the New York City area listeners, especially on a powerhouse station like WABC Radio, as well as WLIR 107.1, our sister station on Long Island.”

“It is with great pleasure that I announce Dominic as our 3 to 4 pm host,” added Red Apple Media and WABC Radio owner John Catsimatidis. “Dominic is an exceptional broadcast journalist and political commentator, who presents all sides of issues relevant to our listeners. He’s done an excellent job with his overnight programs, and I know he will do the same with the 3pm hour.”

Carter steps into the timeslot previously held by former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani. He departed the station last month after continually dismissing edicts relating to the way WABC would discuss the validity of the 2020 presidential election. Giuliani — who served as an attorney for former President Donald Trump — has continually claimed the election was “stolen” in favor of Joe Biden.

Red Apple Media President Chad Lopez shared he was excited to promote from within to fill the vacancy.

“Dominic brings a lot of energy to his programs, and he is an exceptional interviewer,” Lopez said. “Growing our own from within is always a recipe for success.”
