WESTWOOD ONE has signed a partnership and syndication deal with longtime CHICAGO radio star JONATHON “JOHNNY B” BRANDMEIER, whose talk show will be available nationwide in MARCH. Airing live weekdays from 10a-1p ET, The JONATHON BRANDMEIER Show will be heard on WLS-A/CHICAGO, KABC-A/LOS ANGELES, KLIF-A/DALLAS, KKAT-A/SALT LAKE CITY, WPRV-A/PROVIDENCE, KTBL-A/ALBUQUERQUE, and others; BRANDMEIER is replacing DENNIS MILLER, who is leaving broadcast radio and who recently launched a podcast, "PO'D CAST," with ADAM CAROLLA.
“JONATHON is one of the most versatile performers in radio today, and we know audiences will enjoy his lively humor and take on each day’s topics,” Cumulus EVP/Content and Programming JOHN DICKEY said. “We’re thrilled to add JOHNNY B to the WESTWOOD ONE roster of relevant and relatable Talk programming.”
“This is extremely exciting for all of us at THE JONATHON BRANDMEIER Show,” BRANDMEIER said. “We look forward to continuing to entertain audiences in CHICAGO and expanding our reach nationwide. Fasten your seat belts, it’s going to be a wild ride!”
MILLER said, “I’m stepping aside from radio at the moment,. It’s been a great run and I’ve had a phenomenal time interacting with my guests and audience. But with so many other commitments right now, it’s hard to maintain a daily talk show. It’s time to pass the torch as I move on to explore other opportunities. I wish JOHNNY B lots of luck.”
