SUN BROADCAST GROUP celebrates a lucky milestone TODAY (11/17) as it turns 7 years old. The national radio network, headquartered in NEW YORK CITY and BOCA RATON, FL, will unveil the 2016 lineup at it’s annual upfront event this FRIDAY night.
“Jackpot!,” said CEO JASON BAILEY. “What an amazing year SUN has had. First picking up the honor from INC. MAGAZINE as the fastest growing radio company in AMERICA, then welcoming so many new and wonderful brands to our advertising family, and finally, watching revenue skyrocket more than 35%. It truly has been the most wild seven-year journey -- and I can’t imagine a better group of people to share it with then the hard working men and women here at SUN.”
Throughout 2015 SUN announced major additions to it lineup including the most recent news of HUBBARD RADIO joining the “SHAZAM for Radio” family. Just a few short weeks ago, SUN also welcomed “The Weather Channel” to its sales offering for 2016, which will include the first ever "Shazamable" weather reports. And SUN’s partnership with ENTERCOM morning man FITZ, saw a major jump as well this year with his new daily radio show being cleared in dozens of markets just a few months after its launch.
"2016 will be a year to remember as we unveil a killer line up of new programs and services for all formats including country, rock, spoken word and Hispanic,” said SVP/Programming RON RIVLIN. “It’s our birthday, but it’s our affiliates getting the presents.”
According to RIVLIN, the biggest news is still to come on FRIDAY night during SUN’s agency and programming upfront event, “2016 - The Preview.” For more information or to request tickets, contact DAINIA MCGREGOR at (212) 380-9314.
