Mutual Lifestyle Radio

Mutual Lifestyle Radio was a service of the Mutual Broadcasting System. It aired an hourly newscast at 55 minutes past the hour, which focused primarily on "good news" or offbeat stories aimed at contemporary and AOR radio audiences.

The newscast was originally branded "Progressive News" to differentiate itself from the "Comprehensive News" that aired on the hour and half-hour. It was created in the early 1970s as Mutual Progressive Network (a.k.a. MPN) when Mutual, having lost their lawsuit attempting to prevent ABC from splitting into four radio networks in 1968, decided to take a similar tactic, also launching Mutual Black Network (a.k.a. MBN), Mutual Cadena Hispánica (translated to "Mutual Spanish Network"), & Mutual Southwest Network. The newscast was re-branded in 1980 and subsequently canceled in 1983.
