CBS RADIO is partnering with ASTRALWERKS on the nationwide "SHE CAN DJ - AMERICA" talent search to find the country’s top female DJ/producer. After successful programs in AUSTRALIA and throughout Europe, "SHE CAN DJ" will launch in major markets nationwide this JULY.
Following local competitions run by CBS RADIO stations in NEW YORK, LOS ANGELES, CHICAGO, SAN FRANCISCO, HOUSTON, BOSTON, DETROIT, PHOENIX, SAN DIEGO, CHARLOTTE and LAS VEGAS, 12 semi-finalists will be chosen, including one wild-card competitor to vie for a grand prize that includes a recording contract with ASTRALWERKS and a headline tour through the CBS RADIO markets that took part in the competition.
"Aspiring female DJs/Producers need look no further than SHE CAN DJ for that once in a lifetime chance to captivate an entire industry with their talent," CBS RADIO SVP/Programming GREG STRASSELL said. "As the competition plays out across our considerable platform of Top 40 radio stations, participants will be front and center with millions of music fans, and the top decision makers in the business. The electronic dance music movement has been playing out to much success on radio stations all over the U.S., and CBS RADIO looks forward to advancing the genre."
"Seeing how successful SHE CAN DJ was in discovering top female DJ/producer’s in overseas markets it’s the perfect time to launch stateside," ASTRALWERKS GM GLENN MEDLINGER said. "The U.S. is the hottest place on earth for dance music right now but the industry is largely male dominated. We’re thrilled to be a part of a program that will help discover and develop top female talent in the dance music space.”
Further details about the competition including rules and regulations will be revealed soon. Visit www.shecandjus.com for the latest updates.
