Former PREMIERE RADIO NETWORKS Chair./CEO STEVE LEHMAN and former MTV Head of Programming and KROQ/LOS ANGELES PD ANDY SCHUON are pooling their talents to launch "C" Student Entertainment, a boutique radio and mobile-focused media company. Their first program will feature online gossip maven blogger PEREZ HILTON.
HILTON's show will premiere on MONDAY, MAY 5th, and will air twice daily with fresh updates from his enormously successful blog PEREZHILTON.COM.
"This is the first time a superstar created on the Internet has made the transition to radio. Having someone as compelling as PEREZ as part of a station lineup will significantly drive listeners to radio," SCHUON said
Added STEVE LEHMAN, "PEREZ is as electric and entertaining on-air as he is on his blog. He’s a natural talent and will register as peoplemeter-active. 'C' Student Entertainment will focus on bringing compelling personalities like Perez into radio and take advantage of cross platform opportunities on the Internet and mobile."
