CBS RADIO has inked CARSON DALY to a multi-year contract extension keeping him as host of "MORNINGS WITH CARSON DAILY" at Top 40 KAMP-F (97.1 AMP RADIO)/LOS ANGELES and the syndicated weekly "THE DALY DOWNLOAD WITH CARSON DALY."
CBS RADIO President/CEO DAN MASON said, “CARSON has proven to be a leading authority on music and pop-culture and plays a significant role in 97.1 AMP RADIO’s success. He has used his knowledge to build not only a great local show but additional programming that connects to audiences nationwide. For the past year and a half, CARSON has highlighted the biggest songs in music on his weekly countdown show and brought millions of music fans to the radio in the process. We’re delighted to extend our agreement with such a talented broadcaster.”
DALY, who also continues as co-host at NBC's "TODAY SHOW" and host and producer of NBC's "THE VOICE" and "LAST CALL WITH CARSON DALY," added, “I love radio. I’ve been doing it since I was 18. I hope to do it forever. I know it well, and it’s the most fun job I have.
“I’m so grateful to my CBS RADIO partners for letting me continue to have my own show in the town I love and was born in. People always ask me why I still do radio with all the glitzy TV gigs. It’s simple – television is what I do, radio is who I am.”
