Syndicated country radio personality Bobby Bones has been such a fan of podcasting he struck a deal in 2017 to launch the Nashville Podcast Network with iHeart’s Premiere Networks. It has since launched shows like Get Real with Caroline Hobby and Too Much To Say with Kalie Shorr. Today Bones announced he has extended his relationship with iHeartMedia in a deal that will see him continue to host the Premiere Networks-syndicated morning show for radio, and the "BobbyCast" podcast, which reports seven million monthly downloads.
“This year marks a career milestone of 10 years of The Bobby Bones Show in Nashville,” Bones said in the announcement. “I’m proud of what we’ve built over the last decade and I’m looking forward to extending this partnership and having continued success together.”
“The Bobby Bones Show” is based at WSIX Nashville (97.9) and broadcast on 200 radio stations across the country, while “Country Top 30” airs on nearly 240 stations in North America and the U.K.
“Country music continues to be an enormously popular force in radio for listeners, and we’re thrilled to extend our relationship with one of the top personalities in the genre,” iHeart CEO Bob Pittman said. “Bobby brings a captivating blend of talent, knowledge, humor, and relatability that makes him one of the best voices on air, driving incredible results for our advertising and partners. We’re proud to partner with Bobby to create even more unforgettable opportunities for our loyal and growing country music audience.”
As part of his new deal with iHeart, Bones will continue as VP/Creative Director of iHeartCountry. In his corporate role at iHeartCountry, Bones works on various joint ventures and programming initiatives. He will continue to host the annual iHeartCountry Festival and participate in the iHeartRadio Music Festival and the iHeartRadio Music Awards.
