BizTV and BizTalkRadio announced the addition of a new top-of-the-hour news product that airs daily from 9:00 am to 5:05 pm EST.
“We felt there was a void in the marketplace for business news,” said Scott Miller, EVP of BizTV and BizTalkRadio. “There are several great resources for news, but our TV and Radio affiliates wanted a news product that follows the stock market and provides business centered news stories.”
BizTalkNews is a five-minute top-of-the-hour news product that gives affiliates options. Stations can choose to air the entire five minutes or pick the segments they are interested in airing: News Headlines, Market Report/Business Headlines or a segment on Business Stories. “We wanted to give our affiliates the ability to pick and choose to meet the needs of their viewers or listeners,” said Miller. “This gives them an option to air all five minutes, join the feed for the Market Report and Business Headlines or air the Business Stories later in the same hour.”
Independent News Network, a division of The Media Gateway in Little Rock, Arkansas is producing BizTalkNews. “We are excited to partner with BizTV and BizTalkRadio on this new venture,” said Jeff Lyle, President of The Media Gateway.
