Z100's Elvis Duran Signs Syndication Deal

Clear Channel continues through its Premiere Radio Networks to move into the direction of having syndicated dayparts throughout the day for all of it's stations. Elvis Duran signs syndication deal for it's Top 40 stations. Duran joins Ryan Seacrest who is syndicated in the mornings on the west coast and in the middays for the east coast. Steve Harvey is their man for Urban AC radio, could they be looking for a host to syndicate to their Urban and Rhythmic stations?


Elvis Duran and the Morning Show, now heard on Clear Channel Top 40s WHTZ (Z100)/New York, WHYI (Y100)/Miami, WIOQ (Q102)/Philadelphia, and WAKS (Kiss FM)/Cleveland, is going national as Premiere Radio Networks takes on distribution rights to the show.

"Elvis is a radio veteran and has used his experience to create a top-rated and widely acclaimed program that appeals to listeners everywhere," said Premiere EVP/Affiliate Marketing Julie Talbott. "We're excited to bring Elvis Duran and the Morning Show to audiences across the country." Duran said, "It's such a thrill to be aligned with the world's most far-reaching, respected radio network. This alliance will bring millions of new listeners, opening doors to unique marketing
and sales opportunities." The show, based at Z100, airs 6-10 a.m. ET.


Radio consultant Jerry Del Colliano tells radio programmers in his blog to go after Clear Channel's "Simon Says" radio, with local programming.

By the way: Clear Channel has just issued an edict to at least five of their stations, according to Jerry, that they must carry a 30 minute infomercial every morning at 5 am for the next 13 weeks. Sounds like a good way to serve the public in the morning.
