LOS ANGELES – May 2, 2018 – Premiere Networks and Orbyt Media announced today an expanded agreement to distribute The Bobby Bones Show across Canada. Effective immediately, the CMA and ACM Award-winning program, which reaches millions of listeners on 130 stations in the U.S., will be available to Canadian Country music stations.
Bones, who will appear as a keynote speaker at Canadian Music Week in Toronto on May 10, is no stranger to Canadians. Orbyt currently syndicates Bones’ popular weekend countdown program, Country Top 30 with Bobby Bones, which can be heard in many markets across Ontario, Saskatchewan, New Brunswick, British Columbia and Manitoba.
“The Bobby Bones Show is the most popular Country radio show in the world,” said Rob Farina, Bell Media’s Head of Radio Content, Strategy & iHeartRadio Canada. “We are so proud to support The Bobby Bones Show as they expand their reach and audience in Canada.”
“The Bobby Bones Show has a proven track record of entertaining and engaging millions of Country music fans across multiple platforms in the U.S.,” said Julie Talbott, Premiere Networks President. “We’ve had a successful partnership with Orbyt Media for many years, and we look forward to working with them to expand The Bobby Bones Show in Canada.”
Each morning, hosts Bobby Bones, Amy, Lunchbox and Eddie welcome the biggest names in Country music and entertain listeners with their unique mix of pop-culture news and information, crazy stunts and hilarious conversations.
