Updated Clocks and Content Offers Alternative to Traditional Morning and Daypart Programs
Envision Networks® is proud to announce that is now syndicating the all new Doug Stephan’s Good Day. The daily morning and daypart program helps listeners get their regular fix of a compelling blend of information and entertainment. The show airs live every weekday from 4 to 10 a.m. EST and Saturdays 7 to 9 a.m. EST and can be broadcast in other dayparts throughout the day. It can currently be heard on more than 200 stations nationwide.
“The Good Day brand of friendly voices will continue our growth trajectory now with the assistance of Envision Networks®,” Host Doug Stephan said.
Doug Stephan’s Good Day delivers passionate topics and discussions on items affecting listeners the most in their daily lives. Joining Stephan is a cast of co-hosts bringing different perspectives to each conversation including Jennifer Horn, Rich McFadden and Roberta Facinelli. Additional contributors round out each hour by providing listeners with news they can use on entertainment, health, technology, pets, travel, finances, home improvement, cars and more. These benchmark segments also offer an opportunity for stations to generate local revenue with sponsorships.
“Today’s daily programming needs innovative talent. Doug Stephan’s Good Day provides the perfect showcase for Doug’s versatility and considerable talents and we are thrilled to have him as part of our programming lineup,” said Danno Wolkoff, President and CEO of Envision Networks®.
Doug Stephan’s Good Day is customizable by daypart to fit any station’s needs. It’s easy to localize and stations can include their own content at designated points throughout the each hour. It can also be tailored to fit multiple formats including talk, adult contemporary, classic hits, hot AC, oldies and more. Each discussion in the program is self-contained so stations can opt to air all six hours or less and listeners won’t miss out on any part of the conversation. The show is delivered via satellite or FTP download to allow stations to broadcast it live or tape delayed based on their programming needs.

About Doug Stephan:
Doug is passionate about radio. Ever since he was a freshman at Heidelberg College in Ohio, he has made it his life’s work to create quality programming that entertains, engages and enriches radio listeners. In the process, Doug has created one of the largest and most successful independent radio organizations in the country.
But the road to success in radio is rarely easy. After graduation, Doug didn’t work full-time in radio. Instead, his early career paths exposed him to a wide variety of experiences – from teaching middle school English to running a number of family businesses – although he was never far from his true passion.
He worked on-air wherever and whenever he could – sometimes on 3 stations at the same time – weekends, evenings, whenever he got the chance -all the way from Boston to Providence, Rhode Island. In the early 1980s, while looking for his big break, he was Operations Director at WEEI-AM, a Boston news station.
Finally, in 1988, he got the chance to do the radio show he dreamed about when he was chosen by American Radio Network to host a new program, GOOD DAY USA. Once again, the road wasn’t smooth. With ARN being battered by a series of ownership changes, Doug decided to risk everything to do the show he believed in – and took control of the program.
He changed the name to DOUG STEPHAN’S GOOD DAY, purchased his own satellite time, set up a studio in his home and then found radio stations to run the program. In the beginning, he even sold his own advertising. To support GOOD DAY, he worked on-air at national powerhouses such as KABC, Los Angeles, WCAU, Philadelphia and KMOX, St. Louis.
All of the hard work, vision and ingenuity paid off as DOUG is currently heard on over 300 radio stations by over 3 and a half million listeners every week. Doug is now among the top national talk radio personalities according to TALKERS magazine. His company, Stephan Multimedia, is the largest independent producer of talk radio programming in the country, with offices in New York City, Los Angeles and Washington DC, and his reach has extended to Podcasting and the Internet.
But the statistics and growth are only a small part of Doug’s success story. The real story is the relationship that he has cultivated with his listeners.
As Doug says, ‘I love helping people start every day as a good day, which can include an offbeat slightly crazy story, a shot of humor, or the top news you need to know. Sometimes I like to describe the show as the fun, foibles and frustrations of day-to-day life – filtered through the psyches of both myself and the listener.
The listeners are so important because I am motivated to help people grow – and that includes me. I like to engage, provoke, entertain and inform – to stimulate, sometimes in unexpected ways. Some people even call me a contrarian. I like to think of myself as an entertainer with a mission’.
He has received numerous industry awards and provided community service for Big Brothers.
