Salem Radio Network Announces Mid-Term Madness for the Hugh Hewitt Show


Salem Media Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:SALM) has announced this coming
mid-term election November 6th will be historic for several reasons.
Salem Radio Network will be launching Mid-Term Madness, a fantasy game
allowing listeners to the Hugh Hewitt show to select who they think will
win those key races. Much like basketball brackets where fans can
choose the teams they want to win, or fantasy football where fans choose
players, listeners will be able to select from a variety of races across
the country and show their political expertise.

"I've been a fan of fantasy football leagues for years, but this is the
first time anybody has figured out how to apply those basic rules to a
national election," said Hugh Hewitt, heard 6-9am ET on the Salem Radio
Network. "My listeners are incredibly smart, especially about all these
races. The winner will get to co-host a radio show with me. What could
be better?" said Hugh.

Beginning September 10th, Hugh's listeners will be able to go to his
and register to play. Hugh has worked with Loyal Ears Digital, a company
with a great deal of experience in fantasy sports leagues. They will
monitor the game, and watch for fair play and accuracy. The winning
contestant will win a trip to Washington, DC, to be on the Hugh Hewitt
radio program across the country.

"This Mid-Term election is perhaps the most important non Presidential
election in history, shaping the direction of the country for years to
come," said Salem Sr. VP of Spoken Word, Phil Boyce. "Adding this
element of listener engagement has never been tried before, but the Hugh
Hewitt show is the perfect platform to make this work."
