Westwood One announces an extended multi-year partnership with Country music star Kix Brooks, host of the syndicated “American Country Countdown.” The announcement comes as Brook’s celebrates his tenth anniversary with the show.
The three-time CMA “National Broadcast Personality of the Year” is the first person to ever win a CMA Award in both the artist and broadcast categories. In addition to counting down Country music’s Top 30 songs each week on “American Country Countdown”, Brooks hosts the nightly radio show “Kickin’ it with Kix” and is a regular contributor to “NASH Country Daily.”
“Ten years ago when I was offered the opportunity to host American Country Countdown, I thought ‘Wow I don’t know much about talking on the radio, but I love this business, and I love great songs and talent. I’ll get to spend time with so many friends I never see anymore. This could be fun,” said Brooks.
“Extending our partnership with Kix is a no-brainer,” said Westwood One President and Cumulus Executive VP/Corporate Marketing Suzanne Grimes. “He’s more than a Country legend, his lifestyle and entertainment brands touch millions beyond the Country space. Plus our listeners and our clients just adore him. We look forward to extending our relationship working with Kix on multiple new projects.”
