Citadel Media Adds Brickman
January 27, 2011: Citadel Media adds Your Weekend With Jim Brickman, hosted by the multiplatinum recording artist. The four-hour show features AC music, and comes to Citadel Media with more than 70 stations on board. Citadel Media will manage ad sales for the show and work with Brickhouse Radio network on affiliations.
"As both a veteran broadcaster and accomplished musician, Jim Brickman truly understands what it takes to keep an audience entertained," Citadel Media SVP/Programming & Distribution Carl Anderson said. "His early music career included working with some of America's top brands to develop marketing themes and jingles, so there are few in our field who better relate to the needs of advertisers. Adding Jim to our portfolio will be a tremendous boon to both our affiliates and our advertising partners."
Brickman is a Grammy nominee who has been honored twice as SESAC Songwriter of the Year. He's made alliance with companies including Target, Bed Bath and Beyond, and Walmart, and hosts an annual fan cruise.
