JIM BOHANNON will continue to stay up late and get up early for WESTWOOD ONE under a new multi-year agreement with the syndicator. BOHANNON's "THE JIM BOHANNON SHOW" (10p-1a ET) and "AMERICA IN THE MORNING" (5-6a ET) will continue to air on over 300 and over 356 stations, respectively, with the new deal in place.
"It's a privilege to be able to continue working with the best professionals in the business," said BOHANNON. "WESTWOOD ONE is poised for a renaissance. Our best times are yet to come. I look forward to the 25th anniversary of AMERICA IN THE MORNING this SEPTEMBER, and other milestones ahead. If you want good radio, look no further."
"Two shows, 600 affiliates, but only one JIMBO," said EVP, Network News and Talk BART TESSLER. "We're proud that the quintessential talk show host and militant moderate will continue to engage his very loyal audience from night till morning."
