July 13, 2011 at 6:28 AM (PT)
PREMIERE NETWORKS has joined efforts, in association with AGILE MEDIA PARTNERS, to launch TMZ RADIO -- a new national weekday vignette for entertainment radio stations. Hosted by TMZ founder and Exec. Producer HARVEY LEVIN, the radio vignette features TMZ's trademark blend of entertainment information, breaking news and an unfiltered, honest and humorous look at the world of celebrities.
Available to stations MONDAY through FRIDAY as two one-minute vignettes, TMZ RADIO is currently airing on more than 50 stations across the U.S.
HARVEY LEVIN stated, "The stories in the radio spots are often delivered minutes after we put them up on TMZ.com. In other words, the spots almost become live broadcasts."
AGILE MEDIA PARTNERS General Partner DOYLE ROSE said, "Radio programmers across the country know their listeners have an insatiable appetite for celebrity news, and who better than TMZ to deliver it to them every day?"
"TMZ has become one of the most influential and credible entertainment news brands in the world, and we're delighted to deliver it to radio audiences across the country," stated PREMIERE SVP/Programming JENNIFER LEIMGRUBER. "The response to TMZ RADIO from stations and sponsors alike has been tremendous."
Stations interested in TMZ RADIO should contact PREMIERE NETWORKS at (818) 377-5300.
