iHEART'S MEMO FROM TURNER

Awards Extravaganza Moving to TBS, TNT and TruTV

The iHeartRadio Music Awards are moving to TBS, TNT and TruTV. The show will be simulcast on all three Turner networks on 4/3, in the midst of the NCAA finals. 

The Awards will also be broadcast live on iHeartMedia stations nationwide and on iHeart's digital platforms. This year's festivities generated some 14 billion social impressions.

"The iHeartRadio Music Awards is a true celebration of the music and artists we play for our 245 million monthly radio listeners across the country on our radio stations and on the iHeartRadio app," reads a quote from iHeart prexy John Sykes. "Now that we have an established track record of success with the awards show, partnering with Turner Broadcasting allows us to extend our reach to their tens of millions of viewers on TNT, TBS and truTV, making this a massive multi-platform event."

Added Turner/TBS/TNT exec Kevin Reilly, "This multi-platform celebration will complement a spring packed with big live event music, entertainment and sports programming across our networks. The iHeartRadio Music Awards programmed between Turner's exclusive coverage of the Final Four and National Championship games will make for an incredible weekend for sports and music fans alike. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to wax Ted's mustache."

The iHeartRadio Music Festival, meanwhile, will continue to be televised on the CW.
