(Fargo, ND) -- Flag Family Media announced Tuesday that it has finalized agreements to bring two prominent broadcasters to its company, with the additions of Chris Berg and Tom Tucker.
Berg is hosting a daily radio program “The Chris Berg Show” weekdays at 4 pm on WZFG “The Flag” (AM 1100 / FM 92.3), in addition to playing a major role in the company’s sales efforts. He will also be returning to the video world, starting a new video news and commentary program on the company’s online and social media platforms. Tucker will be a Senior Reporter and Anchor in the WDAY Radio newsroom (AM 970 / FM 93.1) and will, like Berg, be launching a new video news program via website and social media.
“We are thrilled to be adding two broadcast news superstars to an already accomplished team,” says Steve Hallstrom, President and Managing Partner of Flag Family Media. “This now gives us five reporters on the news team, and two more skilled communicators to bring important news and perspective to our viewers and listeners. Chris’s talents are taking our news-talk brand to new levels each day, and Tom is an Emmy Award winning TV professional. I’m excited to bring their talents back to the video world with some new programs we’re building.” Berg and Tucker were most recently employed by Gray Media / Valley News Live.
"I am looking forward to joining the team at Flag Family Media for so many reasons,” says Tucker. “Ownership has put together a talented and hardworking staff who consistently produce fantastic news, conversation, and community-focused content. The organization is imbued with a spirit of innovation, creativity, family, and integrity, and I'm grateful for the opportunity to become a part of it. I'm excited to build on what the staff has already accomplished, while playing a role in new journalistic ventures."
“I am very excited to be at Flag Family Media,” says Berg. “It is much more than a family of radio stations, it is a media playground. There are so many ways to consume media these days, and Flag Family Media is offering people all sorts of ways to consume our outstanding content. It serves our outstanding community, while at the same time serving our advertisers. I have been here only a few weeks, and it is great to be around the culture here at Flag Family Media because it is a team. Everyone supports one another to help grow personally and corporately. One of the best things about the company culture is that it really focuses on adding value to our community.”
