NAM launches radio program on business

Aug. 9, 2006

The National Association of Manufacturers launched a public affairs radio program, “America’s Business” with Mike Hambrick, last weekend on eight radio stations across the United States.

The program is being aired in varying time slots, and premiered on WTNT-AM 570 (in the Washington, D.C., area) at 11:00 a.m. to Noon August 5. The NAM says 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,” John Engler, president of NAM, said, adding: “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.”

Host Mike Hambrick is a veteran of TV and radio, and anchored newscasts in Washington, 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.

The National Association of Manufacturers is the nation’s largest industrial trade association, representing small and large manufacturers in every industrial sector and in all 50 states. Headquartered in Washington, D.C., the NAM has 10 additional offices across the country. Visit the NAM’s award-winning web site at for more information about manufacturing and the economy.
