KMG Networks is expanding its radio and podcast partnership with AXS TV’s popular series The Big Interview, hosted by Dan Rather, distributing additional episodes to radio stations across the United States. Advertising sales will be handled by Westwood One.
As part of the agreement, stations will receive an audio version of the archived AXS TV series in addition to a corresponding video segment, which stations may post on their websites, mobile apps, and social media channels. This year’s guest list features music icons such as The Doobie Brothers, Geddy Lee, Steve Miller, Peter Frampton, Lindsey Buckingham, Robert Plant, John Mellencamp, Ringo Starr, and members of The Doors, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Kansas.
“AXS TV is proud to announce the continuation of our audio partnership with KMG Networks,” said Jeff Cuban, Chief Operating Officer of AXS TV. “For seven seasons, The Big Interview has been an integral part of AXS TV’s programming lineup, resonating with our viewers for its unparalleled honesty, candor, and insight into the lives and careers of some of the most influential entertainers of all time. We are excited to have the opportunity to share this incredible show with even more people across the country.”
“We are extremely excited to work with AXS TV and Westwood One to bring Dan Rather and these amazing interviews to radio and podcast listeners across the United States.” said Gary Krantz, founder & CEO at KMG. “Season One was a hit, primarily because there simply is no other interviewer with the respect, credibility, and gravitas of Dan Rather. These interviews are highly compelling because they are recent and reflect back on their legacy. This series continues KMG’s position as bringing ‘best in brand’ content to the industry.”
