NEW YORK, May 3 (UPI) -- National Lampoon will launch a comedy radio network in January, The Hollywood Reporter said Tuesday.
The paper said the National Lampoon Radio Network will be run by Kent Emmons, a co-founder of All Comedy Radio Networks. The new network will target FM stations in major U.S. markets, with an emphasis on men 18-34.
Live programming will originate from Los Angeles and New York. The network also plans to partner with at least one satellite radio service.
All Comedy Radio Networks is currently carried by more than 150 radio stations. Emmons told The Reporter there will be no direct competition between All Comedy Radio and the National Lampoon Radio Network.
"All Comedy is almost all AM, has mainly pre-recorded content and has an older demographic," he said. "National Lampoon is that on steroids."
