Westwood One will end the syndicated “The Billy Bush Show” on December 31 and replace it with “Zach Sang and the Gang.” Westwood is telling affiliates that it will end production of both the weeknight show syndicated radio show and the weekend countdown program hosted by the “Access Hollywood” anchor.
Replacing Bush is “Zach Sang & The Gang” live from 7p-12 midnight ET, clinic hosted by 20 year-old Nickelodeon personality Zach Sang. Produced by WYD Media, “Zach Sang and the Gang” is currently syndicated by Westwood One.
Westwood describes the Zach Sang show as “a national CHR radio hangout with trending content and music for the lost generation created by their peers, integrated seamlessly with essential real-time digital and social engagement.”
Bush’s nighttime show for CHR stations was originally developed by Dial Global, before Cumulus Media bought the network in 2013 and merged it with its own. After the merger Cumulus had dropped the Bush show from more than 50 of its stations to carry celebrity blogger Perez Hilton.
