ELVIS REUPS AT iHEART

iHeart’s Elvis is staying in the building. Nationally syndicated radio host Elvis Duran has signed a five-year agreement with iHeartMedia to continue his role as host of Elvis Duran and the Morning Show on WHTZ, New York’s Z100.

Duran, who started the Z100 morning show in 1996, will also collaborate with iHeartMedia on a variety of joint ventures and events including being the host of the iHeartRadio Jingle Ball in New York City. He will continue to work with iHeartMedia’s talent and programming divisions, serve as a spokesperson for the company and consult on new creative ideas and projects.

Duran’s Morning Show is syndicated nationally by Premiere Networks on nearly 80 radio stations and available digitally on iHeartRadio, reaching more than 10m monthly listeners. Through its multiple platforms, it is the most-listened-to Top 40 morning show in the U.S.

“There’s a reason Elvis Duran is considered one of the most important media personalities in the U.S.,” said Bob Pittman, Chairman and CEO of iHeartMedia. “He uses radio’s unparalleled ability to create one-of-a-kind connections with listeners and advertisers over a vast array of platforms from broadcast radio and iHeartRadio to social media and events.”

“Even after 30 years, I still see myself as someone who loves radio and connecting with listeners every day,” Duran said. “Back when I began in radio, I could have never imagined how it would continue to expand its national presence while still retaining its core as America’s go-to destination for music, community, news and entertainment.”

After boarding his jet, Pittman added, "Elvis is the best. I can't wait to hear him sing 'Love Me Tender' again."
