"Mobile is an important emerging platform for radio and we're thrilled to be a part of Foneshow," said Miller. "Foneshow allows me to deliver unique and compelling material apart from my radio program to my fans via mobile text during both party conventions."

"Now more than ever, people need to keep a sense of humor about the political process. Stephanie's irreverent take on the political world can help keep both Democrats and Republicans smiling," stated Erik Schwartz, founder and CEO of Foneshow. "A fast paced 24/7 event like a political convention is the perfect venue for a mobile platform like Foneshow and we believe consumers will be excited to experience this level of immediacy in a convenient way -- anywhere on their mobile phones."

Broadcasting from flagship station KTLK AM in Los Angeles, Miller airs live, five days a week, Monday through Friday, from 6 to 9 a.m. and is syndicated nationally by Dial-Global out of New York and Los Angeles.
