Bobby Bones
Clear Channel CHR KHFI (96.7 KISS FM)/Austin's nationally syndicated morning host Bobby Bones announced on-air this morning that he is swapping formats and launching his own, national Country show. The announcement was simulcast on sister Country stations KASE and KVET/Austin.

Premiere Networks will syndicate The Bobby Bones Show on Country radio stations nationwide. It will debut on WSIX (The Big 98)/Nashville on February 18 in mornings, as well as the station’s simulcast on SiriusXM channel 57. Bones will relocate to Nashville, along with co-hosts Lunchbox and Amy.

Beginning February 25, The Bobby Bones Show will launch nationwide on KSD/St. Louis; KTGX/Tulsa; KASE/Austin, ; WCKT/Ft. Myers, FL; KYKR/Beaumont, TX; WTXT/Tuscaloosa, AL and WOBB-/Albany, GA; with more to come. The program will be heard on iHeartRadio.com and the iHeartRadio mobile app.

"Bobby has always had a strong interest in Country and with the success of his show in the CHR format, we have no doubt the program will resonate with this new audience and see much continued growth and success," said Jennifer Leimgruber, Premiere Networks EVP of Entertainment Programming. "Bobby is a tremendous talent. His fun, natural and engaging approach to morning radio and passion for Country music will be great for the format and for listeners nationwide."

In addition, Country Top 30 with Bobby Bones, a new four-hour weekend Country music program, will launch nationwide the weekend of March 2 and 3. Each week, Bones, Lunchbox and Amy will showcase the top Country songs, in addition to sharing their conversations with the artists. Originating from Nashville, the show will be available for air Saturday or Sunday between 6 a.m. and midnight local time.

Bones stated, "When we created The Bobby Bones Show back in 2002, we wanted to give listeners a fun, real and entertaining morning show. More than 10 years later, that’s what continues to drive us every day. Moving to a Country format is an amazing opportunity to expand our program to a new audience and we couldn’t be more excited to be a part of the connection between the artists, music and fans that makes the Country music industry so unique.  Nashville, here we come!"
