CUMULUS will launch "DR. DREW Midday Live with MIKE CATHERWOOD" weekdays in LOS ANGELES on Talk KABC-A beginning early JANUARY 2015. As part of DR. DREW and MIKE CATHERWOOD’s expanded relationship with CUMULUS, the company’s WESTWOOD ONE syndication division also will begin syndicating "Loveline" starting JANUARY 1, 2015. LOVELINE will now be airing on a total of 35 CUMULUS-owned stations.
"I'm really looking forward to becoming part of the CUMULUS family and proud to be on the air at the legendary KABC in LOS ANGELES,” said DR. DREW PINSKY. "It will be a great platform to connect with listeners during the daytime. And while Loveline continues to be anchored at KROQ, I am thrilled that the show is expanding into new markets at night. This is a tremendous opportunity and I am grateful.”
“DR. DREW’s passion for helping others has resonated with radio listeners for 30 years. He and CATHERWOOD, one of radio’s youngest and brightest personalities, have become two of WESTWOOD ONE’s most valued hosts,” said EVP/Content & Programming JOHN DICKEY. “We are pleased to expand our relationship with DR. DREW and MIKE through the expansion of Loveline and the introduction of DR. DREW Midday Live with MIKE CATHERWOOD.”
