American Radio Journal

Home / American Radio Journal

From tax reform to health care the debate over public policies that affect the lives of every American are running red hot in Washington, D.C. NOW is the time to add to your public affairs line-up the one program that will keep your listeners fully informed on this rapidly changing landscape.

American Radio Journal can help you fulfill your public affairs programming needs at absolutely no cost to your station!  And, we provide quarterly reports for inclusion in your station’s public file!

American Radio Journal is a weekly half hour public affairs program that cuts through the clutter of the 24/7 news cycle informing and educating listeners on the key issues of the day. While the program primarily concentrates on national economic issues, we also cover significant foreign affairs developments and occasionally pressing social issues.

Best of all – as over 200 radio stations across the country have discovered – American Radio Journal is a dependable, weekly addition to your public affairs line-up that is easily downloaded from our web site (or delivered to you by e-mail) and can be aired and re-aired as often as you like allowing you to meet your public affairs obligations to your community at no expense to your station.

We can offer you this service because American Radio Journal is produced and distributed by the Lincoln Institute of Public Opinion Research, Inc., a Harrisburg, Pennsylvania-based nonprofit public affairs organization that has been providing broadcasters with quality public affairs programming for over 20 years.

And the best part about American Radio Journal is there is no charge to you.

As the host of American Radio Journal, I begin each edition with a Newsmaker interview.  Our growing number of affiliates has enabled us to secure a wide range of top notch guests.  I talk with elected officials, top scholars at some of the nation’s leading think tanks, along with conservative journalists and columnists.

Our Newsmaker interviews are followed by a weekly Real Story report from Scott Parkinson at the Club for Growth giving us the inside scoop on what is happing at the U.S. Capitol and keeping tabs on key political races across the nation. Eric Boehm from Reason magazine contributes a thoughtful, in-depth report on vital public policy issues for each edition of our program. We also benefit from the insightful commentaries of Colin Hanna at Let Freedom Ring, USA; Dr. Paul Kengor from Grove City College, and Jonathan Williams from the American Legislative Exchange Council.

Adding American Radio Journal to your station’s program schedule is simple. Go to our web site and click on the STATION SIGN UP to register (or just click here).  You will enter your station’s call letters, frequency, e-mail address, physical location and the time(s) you plan to air the program.

New editions of American Radio Journal are posted every Friday morning.  We will send you an e-mail reminder when a new show is posted.  At that point,
revisit and click on STATION DOWNLOAD to download the new program.  You may then air the show anytime you
like as often as you like over the coming week.

At the end of each quarter, we will provide you with a list of the guests and topics for placement in your public file. The program has no commercial content, making it a purely public affairs program.

With American Radio Journal it has never been easier – or less expensive – to offer your listeners the best in national public affairs programming.
