Premiere Networks launches Big D and Bubba’s Weekend Wake-Up beginning April 14. The four-hour Saturday morning show will feature interviews and performances by Country stars, as well as Big D and Bubba’s skits and banter. The launch of Weekend Wake-Up follows the duo’s third CMA Award nomination in the “National Broadcast Personality of the Year” category in 2011. Big D stated, “Sleeping in on Saturdays is overrated.” Bubba added, “We’re looking forward to waking up our listeners with lots of laughs, good music and our country music friends.”
“The Big D and Bubba Show is one of the best syndicated Country morning shows available and we’re excited to offer a Saturday morning extension of the program to affiliates,” stated Premiere Networks Senior VP Programming Jennifer Leimgruber. “Big D and Bubba’s Weekend Wake-Up is the perfect weekend companion to the duo’s hilarious, down-home Country, weekday radio program.”
The Big D and Bubba Show also debuted on The American Forces Radio Network last November. Airing live from 6-10am on AFN’s Country station, the duo can be heard overseas in 177 countries and on all U.S. ships at sea.
