PREMIERE NETWORKS has added THE JOHNJAY & RICH SHOW to its lineup of nationally syndicated programs. Beginning JUNE 30th, the company will assume distribution rights to the morning show, which will continue to originate from KZZP/PHOENIX.
“PREMIERE is such a good fit for our show, in that PREMIERE is carved in excellence,” said JOHNJAY VAN ES.
“The best of the best, they sell, market and distribute great shows. They know what they are doing and we most certainly do not.” added RICH BERRA. “DARREN, JULIE, JENN and the crew at PREMIERE have all been around the morning show in one way, shape or form for decades now. We’ve wanted to work with PREMIERE to get the word out about our show forever. We are so excited about the possibilities and reach of this partnership.”
“JOHNJAY AND RICH are one of the best examples of where the strongest radio talent is going,” says WORKHOUSE MEDIA EVP/Partnerships MARK KOPELMAN. “They have a tremendous understanding of their audience and the role of social media with their listeners, generating creative viral content which leads to constant audience engagement and growth. At WORKHOUSE MEDIA, we are combining an ever changing and data-driven understanding of our clients and their markets with an equal passion for the personal qualities that helps reward talent with tremendous growth opportunities like this. It’s a win for radio and a win for our talent, and we could not be more excited to partner with Premiere.”
PREMIERE NETWORKS President JULIE TALBOTT notes, “JOHNJAY AND RICH have created a go-to destination for quality entertainment that wins across varied formats. They have a long, successful history in radio and we look forward to expanding their distinctive style and original, compelling content to additional markets across the country.”
