ONE OF ONLY 2 WEEKEND HOSTS ON HIGHLY COVETED LIST
NEW YORK, April 18, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Aaron Klein's popular radio program made the radio industry's highly coveted Talkers Magazine "Heavy Hundred," one of only two all-weekend shows in America to make the list.
"Aaron Klein Investigative Radio," broadcast live from the beaches of Tel Aviv, is heard on New York's 77 WABC Radio, the largest talk station in the U.S.
"I'm very happy that Aaron has made this coveted industry list," said Chuck Armstrong, WABC's assistant program director. "Aaron is in good company among several other 77 WABC hosts."
Once per year, Talkers issues the Top 250 along with the "Heavy Hundred" radio hosts in America. The Talkers rankings are often quoted in newspapers and other publications. (http://www.talkers.com/heavy-hundred/)
With thousands of weekday shows on air, it is rare for a weekend program to make the list. This year, Aaron Klein Investigative Radio and Kim Komando's nationally syndicated weekend show made the list. Rush Limbaugh came in at #1, with Sean Hannity's radio show at #2 and Michael Savage taking the #3 spot.
Other 77 WABC weekday hosts who made the list include Mark Levin at #7, morning radio king Don Imus and Geraldo Rivera, whose Cumulus-syndicated show debuted in January.
Klein's highly-rated show focuses on U.S. politics and foreign affairs. It uniquely fuses news reporting, including exclusive investigative journalism, with the concept of talk radio and is the only radio talk show in America that is broadcast from the Middle East.
"Aaron Klein Investigative Radio" routinely breaks news and is referred to nearly weekly by the news media.
While focusing heavily on U.S. affairs, Klein is also known to interview world leaders and senior terrorists live on the air.
Klein is also WND's senior reporter and Jerusalem bureau chief. He is the New York Times bestselling author of four books and is a frequent guest on cable news. His website, updated throughout the day, is KleinOnline.com.
