Bobby Bones, host of radio shows The Bobby Bones Show and Country Top 30 with Bobby Bones as well as the podcast BobbyCast just got a huge promotion within iHeartMedia.
This is a picture of me signing my new contract with IheartRadio. Its pretty much THE single deal that Ive been working toward my entire career. Thank you guys for all the support over the many years... Without you, there is no picture bc there is no show! We have literally changed the format together. Furthermore, Ive had these pants on for every contract signing since my first contract when I was 22 years old. I had these pants on when I graduated college! These are good pants! For some reason, I was bigger then than now? I think I was eating a lot more chicken fried steak back then. The show continues to air each day. And will continue to grow all throughout North America. My podcast “the BobbyCast” will be broadcast nationally on the radio as well as be heard digitally. The “women in Country” show that Im hosting and exec producing will air on over 100 radio stations as we try to chip away further at an unhealthy musical culture. Now I am a VP in the company, but most importantly…Ive got my own parking spot. Ive been working on this contract for about a year! Glad to be staying. But mostly glad that we get to do a lot more good things in the world. Sometimes the little guy wins one ! Appreciate You .
The news broke on July 30th that Bones was promoted to VP, creative director of iHeartCountry, the largest country broadcast radio group in the United States. In this new position, Bones will keep hosting his current shows as well as work on new creative programming initiatives.
Bones will also be adding a new show to his roster: Women of iHeartCountry, featuring female country arts, both established and up-and-coming. The show will be co-hosted with Amy Brown, the co-host of The Bobby Bones Show.
Bones told Billboard,
“This is the opportunity I’ve been chasing my entire career. Thanks to Bob Pittman, Rich Bressler and Kevin Legrett for their years of support and for the space to build this partnership.”
Something that may be small for most people, but something truly big for Bones in the new promotion... a parking spot at the radio studios.
