BENZTOWN has named STRETCH ROBERTS to its production team as lead Rock/Sports Comedy Writer. ROBERTS will write comedic promos, bits and male-focused entertainment reports for the Rock and Sports imaging libraries available through CUMULUS MEDIA NETWORKS.
Most recently, ROBERTS served on SIRIUSXM SATELLITE RADIO as "Stretch," host of the STRETCH Show Mornings on MAXIM RADIO.
BENZTOWN Pres. DAVE "CHACHI" DENES said, "Pound for pound, STRETCH should be way funnier than he is, but we'll take him anyway! Seriously, STRETCH has entertained radio audiences for more than 20 years in cities across AMERICA, and his irreverent sense of humor, intelligent writing, and outrageous perspective will be a huge asset for our affiliates and their listeners!"
STRETCH added, "I am pumped to be working with so many talented people at BENZTOWN and can't wait to jump right in and shake things up like JANET JACKSON's SUPER BOWL Nip Slip. I got into radio to entertain people and make them laugh. BENZTOWN is giving me the chance to do that everyday with no limits! Making over the traditional sweepers and production packages like a Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Face, I plan on servicing our affiliates and listeners with timely production bits on a daily basis."
