ST. LOUIS, March 21 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Clear Channel's My 103.3
KLOU opens it doors to a St. Louis first, a talk show about animals
starting March 30th. Animal Tails will air every Sunday at 8pm.
"Nearly 70% of all households have a pet. We're excited to give this
vocal majority an outlet to hear advice and have their specific questions
addressed by St. Louis' own animal aficionado Randy Grim," says Tommy
Austin, Director of Programming Operations for Clear Channel radio.
Animal Tails will feature the latest discussions in animal welfare and
advocacy, environmental issues, pet care and a host of other unusual,
off-beat, amazing, and heartwarming subjects. Guests include some of the
animal world's top newsmakers, veterinarians and authors. The first show
will feature a well-known St. Louis sports star, Barret Jackman of the St.
Louis Blues hockey club, followed by Actress Loretta Swit from the iconic
M*A*S*H television show.
As dynamic as the show, its host and co-host won't disappoint. Randy
Grim's introduction to the national scene came with the unforgettable book
The Man Who Talks to Dogs: America's wild street dogs and their unlikely
savior. Locally, St. Louis knows Grim as the founder of Stray Rescue of St.
Louis. Grim is featured on Animal Planet, National Geographic, People
Magazine, The Today Show, PAX Television, NPR, CNN, The Weather Channel and
has coined his own award winning book, Miracle Dog: How Quentin Survived
the Gas Chamber to Speak for Animals on Death Row.
Lisbeth Tanz is no stranger to radio. After her stint of hosting
Authors on the Air, she has teamed up with Grim in the formation of Animal
"I've been a lifelong animal lover and advocate, and I'm always seeking
opportunities to use my creative communication skills to educate on the
plight of animals, nature and the environment in today's world. So, when
the chance to work with Randy on the radio show appeared, I jumped at it!"
Tanz said, smiling. "We make a very good team - he's cute and I'm funny.
Or, wait. Maybe it's the other way around... "
Tanz's resume reads like a glossary of expertise. Be it her current
business, The Hired Pen (http://www.lisbethtanz.com/) to animal training
and communication. Tanz is also a primary columnist and writer for the
"With Lis's awesome radio, animal and writing background, the show is
destined to entertain. We will be like the Batman and Robin of radio," Grim
says with a chuckle.
