1270 this week in Buffalo as Dan Bongino launches his national radio show. Western New Yorkers
can now enjoy daily radio shows on Talk 1270 from two of the most listened-to podcasters in
America, Ben Shapiro and Dan Bongino, as well as other marquee talk radio favorites.”

Mark Moss Hosting New Show Focusing on Bitcoin & Cryptocurrency

The show will air on the weekend and will be available via iHeartRadio podcast.

Published

National syndicator Premiere Networks is launching a show focused on Bitcoin and Cryptocurrencies.

The Mark Moss Show will be hosted by investor, strategist, and marketer Mark Moss. The show will air on the weekend and will be available via iHeartRadio podcast.

“We’re witnessing the most important technological revolution right now – it’s the greatest ‘asymmetric opportunity’ of our lifetime,” said Moss.

Bitcoin doesn’t work as a traditional online payment mechanism, but rather offers lower transaction fees to their customers, according to The European Business Review.

Cryptocurrencies are limited, which is why all these currencies keep increasing in value as there is less supply.

“But to take advantage of this opportunity, you need to have asymmetric information and you need to know what most others do not,” Moss said.

“Mark is uniquely qualified to inform and educate audiences on how to make smart investments, grow their money, understand the financial markets and prepare for the future,” said Julie Talbott, President, Premiere Networks. “He doesn’t just talk the talk; he walks the walk. We look forward to sharing Mark’s knowledge and expertise with listeners every weekend!”

The program debuts this weekend.

The Audacy-owned station announced former Director of News & Programming Steve Butler, longtime morning news anchor Harry Donahue, and longtime afternoon anchor Steve Nikazy as its newest members.

“It was an honor to help induct three new members of the @KYWNewsradio Hall of Fame, nominated and elected by our team,” tweeted program director and brand manager, Alex Silverman.

Butler spent decades leading KYW Newsradio before being replaced by Silverman in 2018.  He joined the station in 1979 as a news writer and reporter.

New Jersey 101.5 to Hold Town Hall Addressing Youth Suicide

The program’s on-air panel will feature mental health experts, teen suicide advocates, and Roselin Duenas, a youth suicide survivor, and advocate for New Jersey’s LGBTQ+ community.

New Jersey 101.5 is hosting a town hall Thursday that will focus on youth suicide. According to the station, the number of kids taking their own lives is on the rise across the Garden State. 

“The alarming statistic is the sharp increase in suicide among kids as young as 10,” said Eric Scott, who leads the station’s news and digital departments.

September is also National Suicide Prevention Month. Its goal is to bring awareness that suicide is largely preventable when people seek and receive help.

“Our goal is to remove the stigma surrounding those struggling with thoughts of suicide and connect them with the help they need,” Scott said. 

The program’s on-air panel will feature mental health experts, teen suicide advocates, and Roselin Duenas, a youth suicide survivor, and advocate for New Jersey’s LGBTQ+ community.

The town hall will be streamed on the station’s Facebook page, YouTube channel, and via the New Jersey 101.5 app.
