Envision Networks® proudly welcomes Wallingford Broadcasting Company’s WEKY/Lexington, KY as the latest affiliate of America Weekend, the ratings-friendly programming alternative to bad brokered programming and tiresome “Best-of” shows. With 1340 WEKY now airing America Weekend, the station joins over 150 affiliates on the Envision Talk Network.
Designed to be a break from the usual brokered programming and political fare of most News/Talk stations, America Weekend covers the lighter side of news and lifestyle issues facing today’s on-the-go talk listeners. America Weekend offers 12 new hours of original programming each weekend. The new lineup includes hosts Doug Stephan, Rolland Smith, Carl Sabatino, Ed Kalegi, Mike Bennett, Valerie Smaldone and Leslie Gold.
America Weekend is designed to increase ratings while providing an innovative system for maintaining or even increasing revenue from brokered programs. The flexible America Weekend System provides the perfect platform to break away for sports and other special programming as needed.
