USA Today Profiles Bobby Bones


As it approaches 50 syndicated markets, the Clear Channel marketing machines has been successful at getting Bobby Bones some high profile publicity, including a profile in The Tennessean that was picked up by USA Today. Premiere tells the paper Bones is now pulling in over 2 million weekly listeners and USA Today writer Nate Rau says, "Bones stands on the brink of becoming the new voice of country music radio." The paper is already comparing Bones to the legendary Gerry House who ruled the Nashville market for a very long time.

The 33-year old Bones tells Rau the reason his show works is because he and his co-hosts have diverse backgrounds. "Amy is so conservative, she puts even her religious views right out there for everyone to know and is so passionate. Lunchbox is the opposite, he's so liberal. And (producer Eddie Garcia) is from a Hispanic background, his family is from Mexico. ... I grew up half-ghetto, half-trailer park." Of course, it doesn't hurt to have a company like Clear Channel believe in you, with its marketing muscle and Premiere to help push your show out to stations (and the media) and stations all around the country the company can put you on.
