VP/Music Strategy DISNEY CHANNELS WORLDWIDE and GM/RADIO DISNEY NETWORKS PHIL GUERINI, noted, "HENRY FORD was once quoted as saying 'Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success.' And that's just what we ALL did last night. Beginning the day after the 2015 RDMA and through final picture edit ending just minutes ago this morning and everything in-between, the 2016 RADIO DISNEY MUSIC AWARDS have taken the equivalent of a small country to coordinate, an unprecedented level of team effort, and support. And for this fact, more than any other, I am most grateful, appreciative, and proud of all. Our fourth annual RDMA show entertained a 'SOLD OUT' MICROSOFT THEATRE and this evening, as well as throughout the next many weeks, our collective accomplishments will be seen by many more millions at home across the globe in 159 countries and territories on DISNEY CHANNEL, simulcast on RADIO DISNEY, THE RADIO DISNEY and DISNEY CHANNEL APPS, DISNEY.COM/RDMA and RADIODISNEY.COM."
