Cumulus Media continues the rollout of its Country Nash brand, announcing the launch of ‘Nash Nights Live” hosted by LA Country radio veteran Shawn Parr. Beginning January 6, “Nash Nights Live’ will replace all syndicated shows or local talent on 84 Cumulus country stations from 7pm-midnight, including WNSH, New York. The show will feature the current hit Country songs, news, artist interviews, caller interactions and more. Parr, most recently hosted mornings at “Go Country 105” KKGO Los Angeles. His other work has included KZLA Los Angeles, voice over work for Dick Clark Productions, the American Music Awards, the Golden Globes and the Academy of Country Music Awards.
“After 25 years in Los Angeles Country radio, I can’t even begin to tell you how exciting it is to move to Nashville,” the production home of “Nash Nights Live,” said Parr.
Cumulus Executive VP/COO John Dickey added, “This latest Country music offering from Cumulus Media Networks will provide our listeners and advertisers with in-demand Nash programming and we couldn’t be more pleased to have a star of Shawn Parr’s caliber leading the way.”
The launch of ‘Nash Nights Live’ could spell bad news for ‘CMT Radio Live with Cody Alan,’ which has been syndicated by Cumulus in the 7pm-midnight slot since 2012.
