Dial Global Bets on The Billy Bush Show

Dial Global, picking up the pieces of a fallout with Cumulus Media, has added the syndicated Billy Bush Show to a dozen recent additions-bringing the total up to 60 stations. The latest Dial Global outlets to jump on the Billy Bush bandwagon include Starr 94 Atlanta, KFRH-FM Las Vegas, KREV-FM (The Revolution) San Francisco and KRCK-FM Palm Springs. Cumulus Media’s decision pull Dial Global’s “Billy Bush Show” off its CHR stations for it’s own new night show after it’s purchase of Citadel and Dial Global’s merger with Westwood One,  started a battle between the two networks/syndicators. In what seemed like retaliation for the the Bush cancellations, Dial Global signed deals with a number of  non-Cumulus sports stations to carry its NFL, NCAA and Olympics coverage (Entercom’s KGMZ San Francisco; Lincoln Financial Media’s WQXI Atlanta and Cromwell Group’s WPRT Nashville).
