Clear Channel Media and Entertainment has announced an exclusive long-term agreement with Country radio personality Bobby Bones to renew and expand his relationship with the company.
Under the agreement, Bones will continue in his current role as host of The Bobby Bones Show, which originates from WSIX in Nashville and is nationally syndicated by Premiere Networks. Bones will also continue hosting his weekend programs Country Top 30 with Bobby Bones, as well as Fox Sports Radio’s Bobby Bones.
Bones will also continue to work with CCM+E on a variety of joint ventures including multimedia projects and events, as well as the expansion of his top-rated radio programs.
“In just over a year Bobby and his morning show crew have proven they have a remarkable talent for entertaining and engaging the Country music community, while driving results for our partners,” said Bob Pittman, Chairman and CEO of Clear Channel. “We’re committed to providing the best and most relevant programming to diverse audiences across America, and The Bobby Bones Show connects with listeners across multiple platforms. Bobby is an incredible talent and we look forward to collaborating on many exciting projects to come.”
“The past year with Clear Channel and Premiere has been a tremendous ride,” said Bobby Bones. “I started dreaming about a career in radio when I was about five years old — if I’d known it was going to work out this well, I’d have started earlier. The whole crew on The Bobby Bones Show is grateful for the support we’ve received from Bob Pittman, Rich Bressler, Darren Davis, Julie Talbott, Jennifer Leimgruber, Rod Phillips and Clay Hunnicutt. We look forward to keeping it real with our audience as we grow.”
The new long-term partnership between Bobby Bones, CCM+E and Premiere Networks was overseen by Paul B. Anderson, Principal & CEO of Workhouse Media. “Bobby has the kind of personality that connects with a large national audience while keeping his connection to listeners genuine and personal, every day,” said Anderson.
