Rover Extends With iHeartMedia

Rover's Morning Glory 100.7 WMMS Cleveland iHeartMediaiHeartMedia has renewed and extended its contract with syndicated morning host Shane ‘Rover’ French to keep his “Rover’s Morning Glory” on flagship Rock 100.7 WMMS Cleveland and in other markets.

Rover has been heard on WMMS since 2008 when he jumped from then CBS Alternative “92.3 K-Rock” WKRK. He had been on 92.3 since 2003 including a stretch when he served as the Chicago base of the “Free-FM” Hot Talk brand as one of three regional hosts along with Adam Carolla and David Lee Roth to replace Howard Stern.

Rover’s Morning Glory airs from 6-11am eastern and also currently airs on iHeartMedia’s “92.5 KGB” WKGB Binghamton NY and “Rock 94.9” 1200 WRKK Williamsport PA as well as Stephens Media’s “94.1 The Zone” WZNE Rochester NY.

iHeartMedia, the leading media company in America with a greater reach in the U.S. than any other radio or television outlet, announced today it has renewed and extended its agreement with Rover, on-air personality for Rover’s Morning Glory, the popular morning show syndicated across several markets nationwide.

Rover will continue to host Rover’s Morning Glory, which broadcasts weekdays from 6 – 11 a.m. on affiliates in key markets, including its flagship station 100.7 WMMS in Cleveland, OH. The five-hour show will continue to feature on-air personalities Rover, Duji, Dieter, Charlie, Nadz, Alex and Jeffrey.

“We’ve had a blast working with iHeartMedia since 2008 to expand and grow the show,” said Rover. “In the coming months we’ll enter the next phase of Rover’s Morning Glory – something BIG that’s never been tried in radio before. As the saying goes…stay tuned!”

Rover’s Morning Glory’s reach also includes the RMG-TV live videocast of the show, which streams daily on the interactive and the RMG mobile app. The show recently hosted its ninth annual RoverFest, a live concert and community event that attracted over 20,000 attendees and featured performances from established and rising star recording artists and a fireworks display as well as highlighted locally owned businesses.

“We could not be more excited to reach an agreement to keep Rover’s Morning Glory on WMMS in Cleveland and other iHeartMedia stations across the country,” said Tom McConnell, President of the Midwest/Southeast Division for iHeartMedia. “He’s a very unique talent who has an unparalleled connection to his listeners and local communities.”

    I presume this will lead to his show getting on more iHeart-owned album rock stations, and perhaps other album rockers in markets where iheart doesn’t own album rock outlets.

    Rover has already tried syndication, and in large part, it hasn’t worked. In Rochester, yeah, he’s still there. But in the markets he’s already been in, those stations either went to a different show or flipped formats.
