LOS ANGELES, January 15, 2019 – Award-winning CMT host and radio personality Cody Alan celebrated his five-year anniversary as host of CMT After MidNite. Alan, who took over the industry-leading program in January 2014, was surprised by Country music star Maren Morris and Premiere Networks President Julie Talbott, who stopped by CMT’s Nashville headquarters to help him commemorate the special milestone.
Alan will host his 2000th episode of CMT After MidNite this summer as he continues to feature the biggest hits in Country music, as well as exclusive interviews and performances, event coverage and fan interaction. With more than 25 years’ experience on the air, along with TV hosting duties as co-host of CMT’s signature music show, Hot 20 Countdown, Alan provides fans with 360-degree coverage of the music they love, everywhere they find it. Over the past five years, the two-time ACM Award winner for “National Personality of the Year” has taken After MidNite on the road to visit Bahrain, Australia, Jamaica, Alaska, Mexico and the Bahamas.
Originally launched in 1993, After MidNite was rebranded as CMT After MidNite with Cody Alan following a long-term partnership between Premiere’s parent company iHeartMedia and CMT to create the largest Country music platforms in radio and television. As part of the agreement, Premiere also began syndicating CMT Radio Live with Cody Alan.
Below are some photos from the anniversary celebration.
