PK Communications Co.
About the PK Communications Co.:
The PK Communications Co. was founded in 1978 by Paul Kaminski, as Sportcom Associates. The company produced ad hoc coverage of auto racing events until 1988, when it activated the Motor Sports Radio Network, and began production of "Race-Talk" on April 1, 1988 on a two station network in upstate New York. The program continued production until January 1990, when Paul was recalled to active duty in the United States Army for Operations Desert Shield/Storm. After serving as Broadcast Supervisor, Soldiers Radio and TV, and News Director, Armed Forces Desert Network, Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, he resumed production of "Race-Talk" and began production of a feature called "Radio-Road-Test", which was, and continues to be, a program of driving impressions of American and foreign cars and light trucks. Both programs began national radio syndication on January 28, 1993. "Race-Talk" ceased production on January 25, 2013, and the Motor Sports Radio Network suspended operations thereafter. (PK Communications Co. reserves the rights to resume operations of the network at any time). The company's msrpk.com business unit is now responsible for the production of Radio-Road-Test for over-the-air broadcast and online and RSS/podcast.
