St. Patrick's Day Pak: Travel Expert Stephanie Abrams' Radio Show will Broadcast Live from Ireland's Saint Patrick Centre on St. Patrick's Day


NEW YORK, Feb. 22, 2002 (PRIMEZONE) -- (PRIMEPAK FEATURE) What could be more exciting than being in Ireland on St. Patrick's Day? "Broadcasting live from The Saint Patrick Centre!" responds Stephanie Abrams, travel industry veteran, who is featured on "Travel with Stephanie Abrams." The program broadcasts on Sundays during the one o'clock hour (Eastern Time Zone) of Business Talk Radio Network's "The Business of Success," moderated by Alan Rothman.

"'Travel with Stephanie Abrams' provides listeners with travel information on everything, including special deals, what's 'hot and trendy,' what are the best-kept secrets in travel, tips on saving time and money, and what's new and exciting," Abrams explains. "And The Saint Patrick Centre certainly falls into several of those categories as the newest 'Must See' attraction in Ireland!"

The Saint Patrick Centre, winner of the award for the "Best New Building in the UK," is located two and a half-hour's drive from Dublin and 20 miles from Belfast. It houses an interactive multimedia exhibition dedicated to the life of Saint Patrick, early Irish history, and early Christian times. Located in the ancient town of Downpatrick, medieval capital of County Down, The Saint Patrick Centre was built next to St. Patrick's Grave and juxtaposes 21st century architecture with the natural beauty of the Mourne Mountains and Strangford Lough.

"I just can't think of any place more appropriate for Alan Rothman's 'The Business of Success' and 'Travel with Stephanie Abrams' to broadcast from on St. Patrick's Day. The Saint Patrick Centre, in addition to its mission to educate visitors through interactive multi-media exhibits appealing to people of all ages, offers a state-of-the-art multimedia conference center which corporations and organizations can use for meetings to focus on their missions in a place which sets the tone for introspection, goal-setting, and creating the platform for continued human achievement," Abrams notes.

"Travel with Stephanie Abrams," can be heard on 60 radio stations covering 70% of the United States. To find a local station broadcasting the program, Abrams suggests you visit her website at www.sabrams.com and click on the map for The Business Talk Radio Network. Enter your zip code and a list of the radio stations serving that area will appear.

"We're building a bigger listening audience every week who tune in for travel tips and to have an opportunity to win the travel prizes we give to callers," Abrams explains. "The Saint Patrick's Day Show has some super surprises planned for our listeners. We've invited hoteliers, tour operators, car rental companies and airlines that serve Ireland to join with us to be part of our two-hour broadcast from The Saint Patrick Centre to make this a special St. Patrick's Day celebration, and to use the program as an opportunity to draw attention to all of the wonderful attractions that Ireland has to offer. We will also be focused on uniquely Irish products and businesses, like Waterford Crystal, for example, as part of our overall focus on Ireland and 'The Business of Success,'" Abrams explains.

When asked for a more specific sneak-preview of the St. Patrick's Day broadcast scheduled to air on Sunday, March 17, simultaneously broadcast across the U.S. from Ireland from 12 noon to 2 p.m. Eastern Time, Abrams says, "You'll just have to tune in and let the mystery unfold!" eluding further explanation with her signature sign-off, "Gotta fly now!"
