Benztown Radio Networks signs with Jim Brickman‘s Brickhouse Productions to produce the syndicated radio show “Your Weekend With Jim Brickman.” The deal also includes a new production, sales and marketing partnership. Sales for the four-hour weekend music and lifestyle show will continue to be handled by Cumulus Media Networks.
Benztown President Dave “Chachi” Denes said, “We are beyond thrilled to work with Jim Brickman, one of the most loved and respected personalities and artists in AC Radio and a media and entertainment powerhouse. Jim has developed and grown Your Weekend through brilliant grassroots marketing and a highly engaging, music-centric show that helps people live their best lives and make the most of the best part of their lives — the weekend.”
Brickman added, “I love radio and I love doing this show. It’s a way to communicate my curiosity about the world we live in and we just have a lot of fun. I can be myself with our listeners, and I think they relate to that. I don’t become a radio personality when the mic goes on. I treat the listener like we’re having a conversation one on one.”
