Los Angeles, CA (February 2nd, 2018) – idobi Network has announced its latest show, It’s News to Us, premiering on February 12th, 2018. Hosted by the network’s longest tenured hosts, Eddie Barella and Jason Newcomer, the program will tackle major news headlines, from American politics to pop culture.

“There’s a lot going on and it’s hard to keep up with it all. I thought it would be great if there was a show that dove a little deeper into news stories, with an everyday person’s point of view. Our new show has a sense of humour, but with an informative tone. I’m really looking forward to seeing where we go!” – Jason Newcomer, host It’s News to Us

Broadcasting live every Monday at 8pm ET, idobi Radio listeners will hear well-researched commentary on today’s current events—with plenty of humor mixed in, too. Sometimes accompanied by guests from the worlds of music to politics, Barella and Newcomer will share their take on current events in a similar vein as, The Daily Show or Real Time with Bill Maher. Following the live broadcast, the program will be available on-demand via the idobi app for iOS, or wherever podcasts are found, including iTunes.

“It’s harder and harder to find time to really dig into important news stories, check multiple sources and digest what’s going on. We’re being bombarded with major stories, every single day. It’s News to Us will help listeners (and Jason and me) figure out what’s going on, in a fun way.” – Eddie Barella, host It’s News to Us

Barella and Newcomer are no strangers to the idobi Network, having served as hosts of popular radio show and podcast Eddie Jason and Chris for over a decade. The project went on to be named the Best National Podcast Based in Denver for two years in a row, and became a fan favorite.

Now, we’ll see the two reunite to bring us news, in a type of show never heard before on idobi Network. Informative without taking itself too seriously, It’s News to Us, aims to inform while entertain.

Tune In: ido.bi/player every Monday starting February 12th, at 8pm ET, podcasting every Tuesday morning.
