LOS ANGELES, September 12, 2011 -- America Now with Andy Dean will launch on Tulsa's AM 740 and 102.3 FM KRMG on September 12, in the 9 p.m. to midnight timeslot.
KRMG Program Director Drew Anderssen stated, "We are so proud for NewsTalk KRMG to be among the first group of stations to add Andy's program. I know Andy, I'm familiar with his work, and I'm confident his show will be a big success in Tulsa. Andy is the next generation of talk radio, and the young conservative voice it needs right now!"
Dean stated, "Drew Anderssen gets it. Airing my program is very similar to investing in Google or Facebook at the very beginning. My program is going to be the biggest thing to hit Tulsa since the Homestead Act created the Oklahoma Sooners."
LOS ANGELES, September 6, 2011 -- America Now with Andy Dean added WSB-AM 750 and 95.5 FM in Atlanta to its growing list of affiliates today on September 6.
The addition of WSB is a homecoming of sorts for Dean, who got his start in radio guest-hosting several programs on the station before WSB Program Director Pete Spriggs gave him his own show, The Andy Dean Program.
Spriggs commented, "Andy just breaks through. He's extremely smart and informed, but there's also a great flippant sense of humor to go with all the incredible content. You can't stop listening. His potential is really unlimited."
Dean stated, "Pete Spriggs is a genius. All the great things Pete says about me are 100% true, and any comments that were not great, I edited out of the press release. I'm excited to come back to the place where I got my first shot in radio, and I'm extremely grateful to Pete and WSB."
America Now with Andy Dean welcomed Coast to Coast AM host and fellow Premiere Networks personality George Noory in studio last week for a live interview. Noory, who hosts the most-listened-to overnight radio program featuring discussions on news and current events, conspiracy theories and all things curious and unexplained, spoke to Dean on a variety of topics, including the 2012 presidential race, the existence of other intelligent life in the universe, the truth behind September 11th, and much more.

Noory had a few bones to pick with Dean about his new gig
NOORY: “When you first came to this network, you announced that you came with a suitcase of cash…you took it all. You took everything. There’s nothing left for us. That’s number one. Number two: I’ve been in this studio for eight years, in this building. Your facility is bigger than mine, more spacious, and it’s brand new. Number three: two of your employees, Miranda and Michelle, they were working with me. They’re gone, too! But it’s nice to have you here, Andy.”
On the existence of UFOs
DEAN: “Tell me your thoughts on UFO’s, because I want to know where you’re coming from…Do they exist?”
NOORY: “I look at the study of UFO’s in a very scientific way. You look at this universe, and I’m sure you have walked around at night, and you’ve looked at the stars and the planets. You have to say to yourself, ‘we cannot be alone in the universe. They have got to be out there.’ Now the big question is, ‘are they coming here?’ I think so.”
On Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul
DEAN: “The only proof that aliens do exist on this planet is in the form of Ron Paul. …tell me why you’re attracted to Ron Paul’s candidacy and why does the mainstream media ignore Ron Paul? Is it because he’s an ugly guy?”
NOORY: (laughs) “First of all, I’m non-partisan. I call it the way I see it.…of all the candidates to date that I’ve seen out there on the Republican side, he seems to be the most honest of the bunch. He seems to be the one who cares more about America…I think he’s a truth seeker…All I want in a politician is somebody to tell us the truth…I think Americans can handle the truth if they’re told it.”
America Now with Andy Dean, which launched into syndication this week on more than 30 stations nationwide, welcomed special guest Donald Trump on air on Tuesday, Aug. 9. Dean, who served as President of Donald Trump Productions for six years, in addition to being a contestant on season two of Trump's hit NBC program The Apprentice, spoke to his former boss about 2012 politics and rumors that he may run for President of the United States.

DEAN: "Do you see any Republican candidate defeating Obama?"
TRUMP: "Without even going through the field, Andy, I think Obama is very beatable. I think his presidency has been a total catastrophe, it's been a disaster..."
DEAN: "There's a rumor that you may announce your candidacy for President of the United States as an Independent --right now, on my show. Is there any truth to that rumor?"
TRUMP: "There's no truth to that whatsoever, but we'll see what happens. I have a big show coming up, and I'm not allowed, as you know better than anybody, I'm not allowed to do anything during the course of that show. But that will end at the end of May and I'm allowed to do whatever I want to do after that, so we'll see. Look, if the Republicans pick the right person, I'll be very happy. If they pick the wrong person and the economy continues to be bad, I may surprise a lot of people..."
DEAN: "We'll be waiting until May 2012 to see if you announce your run as an Independent for President of the United States. I think it could be a very compelling candidacy..."
TRUMP: "We have a lot of fun, but much more importantly than fun, I love this country. I hate what's happening to this country, and I'm really glad you're doing what you're doing, Andy, because you're really coming at it with the correct viewpoint. And you're going to have a big audience, and you're going to be a big success, and I'm going to be proud of you, and you better remember Donald Trump."
