Newsmax TV To Simulcast Howie Carr, Joe Pagliarulo Talk Shows

Newsmax Tv will simulcast talk radio shows from veteran hosts Howie Carr and Joe “Pags” Pagliarulo, the network said Thursday.

The network will add the 4 p.m. weekday afternoon simulcasts of The Howie Carr Show as well as well as San Antonio-based The Joe Pags Show that airs at 6 p.m. daily to its programming lineup, said network officials. 

“The addition of both these shows not only give us important new voices to our diverse lineup of thoughtful, informative broadcasters, but they also help us expand our broadcasting footprint into the late afternoon hours,” said Newsmax TV CEO Christopher Ruddy in a statement. “Our audience tells us they’re hungry for useful, intelligent and independent programming. Howie and Joe provide just that.”
