The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) will launch a new public affairs radio program, “America’s Business” with Mike Hambrick, this weekend on eight radio stations around the country, in varying time slots.
In the Washington, D.C., area, it will premiere on WTNT-AM 570, 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., Saturday, August 5. Additional radio stations are scheduled to begin airing the program later this month.
“We are committed to providing a balanced public forum for discussion of the critical issues confronting business,” said NAM President John Engler. “Too often, the general media either give superficial coverage to important business matters or present them in a biased context. We will put a spotlight on the really crucial challenges facing our economy, and give equal time to opposing points of view.”
“We will cover a broad range of issues in America’s Business, beginning this week with clips from President Bush’s address to the NAM last Thursday,” said Hambrick. “We will be talking to policy makers in Washington and factory managers on shop floors. We will talk about soaring energy prices, runaway litigation, failing schools, unaffordable health insurance, and a level international playing field. Anything and everything that impacts the way America does business will be fair game.”
Host Mike Hambrick is a veteran of TV and radio. He anchored the 6 & 11 PM newscast at WJLA-TV for four years and was co-anchor and reporter for WRC-TV for four years. He also served as anchor and reporter for TV stations in Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Dallas and Phoenix. More recently, he wrote, produced and anchored “Freedom Line With Mike Hambrick,” a two-hour national weekly radio news and issues magazine program.
