May 21, 2007 at 10:15 AM (PT)
UNITED STATIONS RADIO NETWORKS announced its lineup for a new series of SUMMER Holiday Specials targeted to the Classic Hits, Classic Rock and Adult Hits formats. This new series is called CLASSIC ARTIST PROFILES, and the series will be hosted by CLEAR CHANNEL Classic Hits WBIG/WASHINGTON afternooner SCOTT STRUBER. The lineup is:
Holiday Artist Broadcast Window
MEMORIAL DAY ELTON JOHN MAY 21-28
JULY 4 THE EAGLES JUNE 30-JULY 8
LABOR DAY PAUL MCCARTNEY AUGUST 27-SEPTEMBER 3
In announcing the specials, USRN EVP/Programming ANDY DENEMARK noted, "We created these shows as a response to affiliate demand. Holidays Specials seemed to be prevalent in a number of other formats, but Classic Hits stations weren’t being serviced. We love to produce and introduce new programming, but we especially like to do so when it’s by request."
