Radio Disney and Dees Entertainment have announced a distribution agreement that will provide radio stations across the United States access to the Radio Disney Top 30, a weekly program featuring the most popular songs among kids and families.

Dees Entertainment is an entertainment content distributor owned by Rick Dees. The company syndicates over 50 hours of content each week including five editions of the Rick Dees Weekly Top 40 countdown show to over 1000 affiliates worldwide.

The three hour Radio Disney Top 30, hosted by on-air personality Ernest "Ernie D" Martinez, originates from Radio Disney's Burbank studios. The program showcases music and entertainment that's relevant to kids, tweens and families and includes exclusive news and artist and celebrity interviews both in-studio and from sets and special events.

Phil Guerini, VP of Programming/GM for Radio Disney, said, "One of our greatest attributes is that parents consider Radio Disney to be a trusted music-centric environment that encourages connections between them and their kids as they listen together. Rick Dees is a visionary who has long tapped into exactly what people want in pop music so we stand to benefit enormously from the expertise and resources of the global business he's built."

Dees said, "Disney is synonymous with world-class family programming, and Ernie Martinez brings likability and broad appeal as well as relevant music for kids and families, a reason why this show has such terrific potential for stations who are looking for family-friendly music programming."

Dees Entertainment's Joe Kieley and Bob Catania will oversee Affiliate Relations for the Radio Disney Top 30.
