August 3, 2018



iHeartMedia has signed Bobby Bones to a new deal, awarding the syndicated host the title of VP, Creative Director of iHeartCountry. In his expanded role, Bones will work on a variety of joint ventures with iHeartMedia and new programming initiatives, including a new one-hour weekend program "Women of iHeartCountry."

The new program, "Women of iHeartCountry," will be hosted by Bones and Amy Brown from "The Bobby Bones Show," and will feature music from established and up-and-coming female artists. It will also feature guest appearances by other iHeartMedia female air personalities. Bones will serve as executive producer of the new show, which will be available to stations later this summer. Bones hinted about the new program in an article in the Tennessean last month.

"Country continues to be one of the fastest-growing music formats and Bobby is the leading on-air personality connecting with country fans across multiple platforms nationwide," said Bob Pittman, chairman and CEO of iHeartMedia. Bones said, "This is the opportunity I've been chasing my entire career. "
