iHEARTMEDIA is expanding its deal with Dr. MEHMET OZ, adding regular appearances on PREMIERE NETWORKS syndicated and iHEARTMEDIA local shows along with the recently-announced move of his "DAILY DOSE" feature to PREMIERE from WESTWOOD ONE and HARPO PRODUCTIONS (NET NEWS, 5/1). OZ will appear on shows like ELVIS DURAN, JOHNJAY AND RICH, BOBBY BONES, and KANE. He will also be featured on a 24/7 iHEARTRADIO stream.
Dr. OZ said, "Radio is both an important companion and part of people's daily routines, and making health part of that routine will help empower listeners to make healthy choices throughout their day. Having worked with iHEARTMEDIA for years, I know that everyone there, including the hosts, genuinely cares about the health of their listeners. I am thrilled and honored to expand my relationship with the entire iHEARTMEDIA family."
"Health and wellness is top-of-mind for our listeners, and we want to address both their curiosity and the social responsibility involved in discussing health topics -- whether it's news, tips or caller questions," said iHEARTRADIO and iHEARTMEDIA NETWORKS Pres. DARREN DAVIS. "For many years, Dr. OZ has been our go-to source for health discussion and information -- and we know our listeners love him in any format -- so we are thrilled with our expanded relationship with Dr. OZ and his well-known and trusted brand."
