THE BERT SHOW SECURES NEW DEAL
The Bert Show recently signed a new multi-year deal with Cumulus Media and Westwood One to keep the show on the radio airwaves for the next five years. A staple on Cumulus Media’s flagship station Q100 since 2001, the morning show continues to entertain Atlanta residents weekdays from 5:30 to 10 a.m. In 2010, the show entered syndication and today is heard on 16 additional stations around the country. Westwood One will take over syndication duties, which may bring the show to even more markets, and will also distribute the show’s podcast.
