ABC RADIO NETWORKS has announced KIX BROOKS, half of the superstar Country duo BROOKS & DUNN will be the new host of the AMERICAN COUNTRY COUNTDOWN show. BROOKS will take over in JANUARY 2006 and fills the slot as longtime host BOB KINGSLEY departs.
"The thing about KIX - not only is he a consummate entertainer, he loves what he does... and he has done it as completely as anyone I've ever seen," says JOHN McCONNELL, Sr. VP/ABC RADIO NETWORKS, of the choice. "He knows the music. He knows the songs. He knows the people. He knows the life. But especially, he knows the stories - and the artists and fans just seem to take him places they wouldn't most other people."
AMERICAN COUNTRY COUNTDOWN is a 4-hour music intensive show that counts down the biggest 40 songs in Country music each week. The show can be heard on more than 400 radio stations nationwide, along with the ARMED FORCES RADIO NETWORK and internationally through a joint venture with RADIO EXPRESS.
