iHeartMedia New York has announced an exclusive long-term agreement with veteran on-air personality Sean “Hollywood” Hamilton to renew his relationship with the company and the Beat of New York, 103.5 WKTU.
Under the new agreement, Hamilton will continue his current role as host of his highly-rated weekday afternoon show on 103.5 KTU in New York City. He also renewed and extended his partnership with Premiere Networks to syndicate his trio of radio programs – The Remix Top 30 Countdown with Hollywood Hamilton, Weekend Top 30 with Hollywood Hamilton and Weekend Top 30 with DJ Pup Dawg – which broadcast on 120 stations worldwide.
“Hollywood Hamilton is one of the most loved, respected and recognized voices and names in radio,” said Bob Pittman, Chairman and CEO of iHeartMedia, Inc. “His unparalleled ability to connect with both listeners and music’s biggest artists is a true representation of what makes radio the most powerful medium in the U.S. It’s the reason he’s been a fixture on New York City radio for the past decade, and we’re excited for the opportunity to continue our long-standing relationship with him.”
“We’re pleased to continue having Hollywood as a part of our iHeart family here in New York,” said Thea Mitchem, Executive Vice President of Programming for iHeartMedia’s Northeast Division. “His passion for this industry is apparent every time he’s on air, and we’re happy that our listeners will continue to have him as a part of their afternoons.”
Hamilton added, “One of the many reasons why it was so easy to re-sign is because of the friends I work with in our building. iHeartMedia, and more specifically KTU, are like family. I’m so happy to be associated with an incredibly talented group of people. Not to mention the extraordinary continuing support of my friends at Premiere Networks.”
