BOSTON, Aug. 16, 2005 (PRIMEZONE) -- Business TalkRadio(tm) Network's Executive Vice President, Jeff Weber, announced that the network's weekly nationally syndicated show, ``Travel WITH Stephanie Abrams!'' whose host is recognized as a global travel expert, is now available for iPod downloading. While the radio travel show is broadcast to affiliate radio stations coast-to-coast, weekly on Sundays in the 7pm to 9pm EST time slot, it is also simulcast live on the Internet. Following each show's airing, it is archived at the network's site (http://www.businesstalkradio.net) for four weeks prior to its permanent archiving at Abrams award-winning website, http://www.sabrams.com, where past shows dating back to July 2002 can be heard in a unique audio archive.

``I am delighted that Business TalkRadio Network stays on the cutting edge of technology,'' Abrams states. ``My audience is made up of serious travelers and iPoding my show is a fantastic bonus for my coast-to-coast radio listeners. It's a wonderful feature for our sponsors and guests who are key suppliers in the travel industry. Now, if my listeners are traveling when my show airs, they can listen live on the Internet, they can listen to the archived shows, or they can download Travel WITH Stephanie Abrams to their iPod and catch up on the valuable information we bring to listeners weekly at their convenience,'' Abrams explains.

The mission of the show, Abrams explains, is to ``Provide a forum to feature the Platinum Experience, those special destinations and special suppliers in the travel industry that provide both business and leisure travelers with opportunities from which they return uplifted, inspired, enriched and enhanced with a spark that stays with them. It is especially relevant, during these challenging times, that 'Travel WITH Stephanie Abrams!' provides a positive and motivational approach to encouraging travelers to get up and go!'' Abrams notes. ``And it is fantastic that avid listeners to the show can take us wherever they go anywhere in the world to stay in touch with our unique programming in places where radios and the Internet may not be available to them! The network has really thought of everything to keep our listeners in touch with us, something our sponsors really appreciate!''

Sponsors of the show include Tourism Ireland, The Boston Symphony Orchestra, Cayman Airways, MSC Cruises and other companies whose clientele matches the demographic of the listeners to Business TalkRadio Network. Abrams points out that financial demographics of the BTR audience are in keeping with that of people with ``money and leisure time,'' Abrams explains. ``And, we have a huge percentage of golfers in our audience! Every time we do a show about golfing destinations, the visitation to my website spikes!''

``Travel WITH Stephanie Abrams!'' originates in the Berkshire Mountains of Western Massachusetts and is the only nationally syndicated radio show airing year-round broadcasting from the region.
