New Network Provides Listeners Continuous Comedy Content
Envision Networks® is thrilled to debut Today’s Comedy Network, the new turnkey continuous comedy format for radio 24/7/365. It delivers non-stop blocks of jokes and one-liners from the best comedians. This fast-paced, safe-for-work and in-the-car comedy fits perfectly for today’s radio listener.
“It’s perfect timing! We are in the midst of an unparalleled comedy boom, and we have never needed a laugh as much as we do now,” said George Gimarc, Skunk Works Media co-owner.
This is the first time a new version of talk radio has been introduced in decades, and it’s the first one that crosses all lines of income, ethnicity, education and gender. By using easily customizable distribution, affiliates can personalize the station to their own market with content, personalities, and contests. In addition to the informative host, each week a different comedian serves as the special guest host every hour for the entire broadcast week. Listeners will hear tracks from their latest release and inside stories about their travels, friends and insights about comedy.
Each hour is programmed with more than 20 additional comics providing even more laughs with new tracks being added to the rotation on a weekly basis. Regularly featured comedians include: George Carlin, Jim Gaffigan, Jeff Foxworthy, Christopher Titus, Brian Regan, Maria Bamford, Patton Oswalt, Bill Engvall, Eddie Izzard, Lewis Black, Gabriel Iglesias, Louis C. K., Ron White, Kathleen Madigan and many more.
“Today’s Comedy provides the best experience for radio stations to offer their listeners,” said Envision Networks® President and CEO Danno Wolkoff. “The format provides the broadest demographic appeal in the crowded talk format arena and most of all; it’s very, very FUNNY!”
Listening closely is a key element to understanding the jokes in this foreground format. Audiences will be listening attentively, plus they’ll be in a better mood and more receptive to advertisers’ messages thanks to all the laughs. While similar active listening formats such as political talk or sports might leave listeners disgruntled over politics or their team’s loss, Today’s Comedy Network constantly makes listeners laugh and smile.
