Salem Media Group, Inc. announced today its sales division, Salem Media Representatives (“SMR”), has formed the Salem Influencer Network, a new entity focused on connecting brands with the fans of leading Christian social media influencers. The Salem Influencer Network is a powerful vehicle to help clients reach the 18-34 young adult generation who are establishing their brand loyalties that will likely continue for decades.

“For years, Salem Media Representatives has been helping our advertising clients reach Christian and politically conservative consumers through multi-media advertising campaigns,” said Mike Reed, SMR’s Senior Vice President. “A frequent request for our clients is to bring them more influencers,” Reed added. “Over the last few years, we’ve been meeting the leading Christian YouTubers and Instagrammers who told us they needed representation they could trust to present them to major brands. We decided we needed to get into this world, and www.SalemInfluencers.com was born,” added Reed.

Jaime Vaughn has joined WTA Media as Marketing Manager. Previously she was with Singing News as Media Strategist, as well as Word Entertainment.
