Premiere Networks announces the nationwide launch of Evolution with Pete Tong. Available to CHR and Rhythmic radio stations nationwide, the Electronic Dance Music (EDM) program will further expand Clear Channel Media and Entertainment’s Evolution brand, which includes the popular digital station Evolution on iHeartRadio, and terrestrial stations Evolution 101.7 Boston and Evolution 93.5 Miami.

Evolution with Pete Tong is a one-hour, weekly program featuring the British DJ behind BBC Radio 1’s Pete Tong Show and the Essential Mix radio show, and host of All Gone Pete Tong, which can be heard daily on Evolution 101.7 and 93.5, as well as iHeartRadio’s Evolution channel. Each week on Evolution with Pete Tong, Tong showcases the best music from the biggest DJs and dance music producers in the world, such as Swedish House Mafia, deadmau5, Luciano, Richie Hawtin, Calvin Harris and others.  Tong also counts down a weekly chart of the U.S.’s favorite dance tracks, presents his essential new tune of the week, and features guest mixes from EDM’s biggest stars. 

Launched nationwide the week of May 13, Evolution with Pete Tong is available for air Tuesday through Sunday from 6 a.m. to midnight local time, and can already be heard on nearly 80 stations nationwide, including: KIIS/Los Angeles; WKSC/Chicago; KYLD/San Francisco; KHKS/Dallas-Ft.

"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."
