"It’s been amazing to see how America has embraced Evolution on iHeart, and on FM in Miami and Boston," stated Tong. "By partnering with Premiere to develop Evolution with Pete Tong, we will be giving more terrestrial stations a great entry point for broadcasting EDM content on-air, and a platform to break and showcase more Electronic Music across America."

"The impact of EDM can be felt worldwide, and this new show represents our commitment to delivering a variety of programming that resonates with listeners and their passions," stated Jennifer Leimgruber, Premiere Networks EVP of Music Programming. "We’re excited to welcome a music innovator like Pete Tong to Premiere’s national lineup as we help listeners connect with and discover EDM artists and their music."
