United Stations Radio Networks, Inc., (USRN) an independent leader in the creation and marketing of network radio programming, produces and distributing a new Country Music program called SERVING YOUR COUNTRY that will mix the Contemporary Country format with coverage of the activities in the realm of the U.S. military abroad and first responders at home. SERVING YOUR COUNTRY will be a music-intensive, 2-hour weekly program anchored by the award-winning morning man from WUSN/Chicago (US-99.5), Ray Stevens, also known as “Ramblin’ Ray.” The announcement came from USRN’s EVP/Programming, Andy Denemark at the company’s headquarters in New York City.
Singer-songwriter Laura Bryna will join Ray Stevens for several segments per week on Serving Your Country to deliver requests, the “Letters from Home” and other listener interaction on the show. Laura has extensive experience providing entertainment and moral support for our troops and their families. She is a celebrity spokesperson for the U.S. Air National Guard as well as The National Guard Youth Foundation, a group that works with at-risk youth. Laura has been on a number of military bases and donned a uniform herself to go airborne in an F-16 fighter jet. The Maryland native released her debut album, titled Trying to Be Me in 2008, and that same year, released the song “Hometown Heroes,” which has become a popular anthem at her many appearances at various military functions. Laura Bryna continues to write and record, and while she has a new album on the way and loves the glitz and glamour of entertaining, she is especially gratified when called upon to perform for military personnel.
