SUN BROADCAST GROUP has struck a multi-year partnership with ENTERCOM syndicated morning personality FITZ. The syndication and sales deal will encompass all FITZ-branded on-air products.
The "POWERED BY COUNTRY" weekend countdown will become "THE HIT LIST" as it moves from UNITED STATIONS RADIO NETWORKS to SUN in 2015. Additionally, FITZ will assume hosting duties of a daily news and entertainment featured entitled "NASHVILLE MINUTE." The feature will be produced by GEN3 ENTERTAINMENT, currently heard on over 80 affiliates, expanding to twice-daily reports beginning with FITZ's debut broadcast on MONDAY, OCTOBER 27th.
"I am thrilled to be working with SUN BROADCAST GROUP," stated FITZ. "I have been blown away by the vision, passion, and energy that JASON BAILEY and his team have shown me. I have never had more support in my life. These guys just get it! PERIOD! They do radio the way it was meant to be done and have definitely changed the way the game is played in our industry. Look out."
SUN will also be syndicating FITZ's top-rated KKWF (THE WOLF/100.7)/SEATTLE morning show "THE FITZ SHOW." Syndication will be offered nationwide as a modular show airing in multiple dayparts for Country, CHR, and Hot AC affiliates.
"SUN BROADCAST GROUP prides itself in working with world-class talent, and FITZ is in a class of his own," stated SUN BROADCAST GROUP SVP/Programming RON RIVLIN. "We are looking forward to taking the FITZ brand to new heights! Buckle up, radio. You're in for a wild ride!"
