Premiere To Take Kane Show National
Premiere Networks is launching The Kane Show into national syndication beginning Monday, December 29.
Based at iHeartMedia CHR “Hot 99.5” WIHT Washington, DC, The Kane Show currently airs on six additional iHeartMedia stations across the country: 93.3 WFLZ Tampa, “Z104.3” WZFT Baltimore, “Kiss 107.1” WKFS Cincinnati, “101.9 Kiss-FM” KWNW Memphis, “98.9 Radio Now” WNRW Louisville, and “99.3 Kiss-FM” WHKF Harrisburg.
Kane joined WIHT for mornings in 2006 from afternoons at WFLZ. Upon the end of the MJ in the Morning show in 2012, Kane’s morning show began airing in Tampa as well. His commercial on-air career began in nights at “Hot 107.9” WWHT Syracuse before moving to Tampa in 1998.

The No.1 ranked morning show will continue to originate from WIHT-FM/Hot 99.5 in Washington, D.C. and will be available to CHR/Top 40 stations Monday through Friday from 6 to 10 a.m. ET, beginning December 29, 2014.

“On a scale of 1 to 10, I’m at about a 14 on excitement for this opportunity!” shared Kane. “We’ve worked hard every morning for the past eight years to entertain, inform, and build lasting bonds with our listeners. Now, the chance to do that on an even larger stage with Premiere is a dream come true for me and the show. I’d like to thank Thea Mitchem, Mark Medina, Tom Poleman, Clay Hunnicutt, Hartley Adkins, Julie Talbott, Jennifer Leimgruber and everyone within the iHeartMedia family who helped make this a reality for us. Here we go!”
Premiere Networks President Julie Talbott stated, “We’re excited to expand our partnership with a talented personality like Kane. Adding D.C.’s top morning show to our national lineup will provide listeners, affiliates and partners with access to one of the most fun, fast-paced and entertaining morning radio programs available.”
Kane will continue to host Club Kane, a Sunday night music radio program which launched in March 2010 with Premiere Networks and airs nationwide on nearly 100 Top 40 stations from 7 p.m. to midnight local time. Each week, Kane plays chart-topping songs, debuts new music and takes requests as he welcomes listeners to his on-air party.
