Trump FM takes political ads to a new level
We barely survived a five-week campaign of wall-to-wall political advertising, but that’s nothing compared to what’s being unleashed in the United States.
Three FM radio stations in Florida are playing 2-minute snippets of Donald Trump speeches every hour, every day until the 2020 Presidential election.
Run the numbers and that’s around 430-hours or nearly 18 days of free air time over the 538-days till polling day.
The stations’ owner Samuel Rogatinsky is doing it as ‘thank you’ to the US President. During a recent visit to the region, he promised federal aid for those still recovering from hurricane last year.
WASJ (adult contemporary), WKNK (country) and WRBA (classic rock) and have turned ‘Trump FM’ with the move apparently going down well with listeners in the Florida Panhandle even if local Democrats aren’t impressed.
