CMT personality Cody Alan will take over as the new host of Premiere Networks’ After MidNite, which will be rebranded as CMT After MidNite with Cody Alan when it debuts on January 6, 2014. Alan replaces Blair Garner on After MidNite, which recently celebrated its 20th birthday. Premiere will also be the exclusive distribution partner for Alan’s syndicated nighttime show, CMT Radio Live with Cody Alan effective January 1.
“I feel like Jimmy Fallon right now!” Alan commented. “To be named host of such a highly regarded late-night franchise is an exciting and humbling honor. We’ll bring new energy, lots of star power and deep resources only CMT and Clear Channel can deliver. And with this new partnership, I can’t wait to give fans 360-degrees of country music coverage, across multiple media platforms.”
Alan will also host a new one-hour weekend show.
