Bobby Bones
Clear Channel Media and Entertainment today announced an exclusive long-term agreement with award-winning Country radio personality Bobby Bones to renew and expand his relationship with the company.

Under the new agreement, Bones will continue his current role as host of The Bobby Bones Show, which originates from WSIX in Nashville and is syndicated nationally by Premiere Networks on nearly 70 radio stations across America, reaching approximately three million weekly listeners.  Bones will also continue hosting his weekend programs Country Top 30 with Bobby Bones, heard nationwide on more than 120 stations, and FOX Sports Radios Bobby Bones, which broadcasts on nearly 250 affiliates.

Bones, who hosted the first-ever iHeartRadio Country Festival in Austin, Texas, this past March, as well as iHeartRadio album release parties for top recording artists like Keith Urban, Luke Bryan, Kenny Chesney and Dierks Bentley, 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. Were 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 Id known it was going to work out this well, Id have started earlier.  The whole crew on The Bobby Bones Show is grateful for the support weve 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.
