NEW YORK (October 6, 2011) -- The Wall Street Journal Radio Network's new News & Talk program The Daily Wrap with Michael Castner was singled out today as "the next big thing" in talk radio by The News Talk Edge – a newsletter for the News and Talk radio industry published by Tom Taylor's Radio-info. The article's author, Tom Tradup, VP/News & Talk Programming for Salem Radio Group, cited several news and talk radio programs that "still have the fire, the imagination and –yes- the 'vision' to break new barriers". At the top of his list was The Daily Wrap from The Wall Street Journal. "Michael Castner, who hosts The Daily Wrap on the Wall Street Journal Radio Network, is like the bizarre-world version of the stodgy print image of the WSJ: he's funny (background includes E! Entertainment TV), savvy on political matters, a terrific interviewer, and he makes everything from the Japanese earthquake to a story about disposable diapers electrifying." Tradeups' full piece can be read here: www.radio-info.com.
