Radio-J.com Prepares to Launch New Program Schedule

CLEVELAND (January 17, 2012) - Radio-J.com has announced the first major overhaul to its programming-schedule since its launch in 2007. The new streamlined schedule retains flagship program "Shalom America Worldwide" and introduces a number of new and exciting programming directions for the pioneering Judaic webcaster. The new schedule begins on Monday February 6, 2012 at 9:00 AM (EST/UTC -5).

One of the first changes listeners will notice, is the implementation of a six hour program rotation which will now repeat four times daily as opposed to the previous eight hour clock which repeated three times each day.

The network's flagship program, "Shalom America Worldwide" will be trimmed by one hour in length to accomodate the new schedule. Program host Phil Fink has already implemented the new two hour show format which he says, "[has] resulted in a leaner and more enjoyable program for the listener. The program moves along much faster and has a new sense of energy and urgency with this new timeframe."

Among the new programs listeners can anticipate are a daily 15 minute newscast at Noon (EST), a rotating series of daily half-hour programs focusing on klezmer, cantorial, instrumental, and Jewish oldies, and modern Jewish music.

"We are particularly excited about "And Now a Word From Our Rabbi", a new twice-weekly program featuring lessons from a diverse group of Rabbis representing a broad-scope of views across the Jewish spectrum", notes Shawn Fink Radio-J's Vice-President of Operations and Program Director. "Each edition of "And Now a Word..." will feature a different Rabbi from our revolving group of Rabbis."

For fans of the current variety of music featured during the day on Radio-J, fear not, "The Mix" will provide listeners with a veritable Jewish-music jukebox featuring Radio-J's cross-genre mix of music where listeners can hear artists ranging from Lipa Schmeltzer, The Yeshiva Boys Choir and Avraham Fried to Safam, Craig Taubman and Debbie Friedman, not to mention The Maccabeats, Matisyahu and many others. "The Mix" will air Monday - Thursday at 1 PM (EST) and during the weekend, and will be followed on weekdays by an hour of Israeli rock hits titled, "Rock B'Ivrit".
