Premiere Networks to Launch "Big D and Bubba's Weekend Wake-Up"
LOS ANGELES, April 11, 2012 -- Premiere Networks is pleased to announce the launch of Big D and Bubba's Weekend Wake-Up. Beginning April 14, the four-hour Saturday morning show will feature the best interviews and performances by Country music's biggest stars, as well as Big D and Bubba's trademark skits and hilarious banter -- all of which have made The Big D and Bubba Show one of the most-widely-syndicated Country morning radio programs in the U.S.
Big D stated, "Sleeping in on Saturdays is overrated." Bubba added, "We're looking forward to waking up our listeners with lots of laughs, good music and our country music friends."
"The Big D and Bubba Show is one of the best syndicated Country morning shows available and we're excited to offer a Saturday morning extension of the program to affiliates," stated Premiere Networks SVP Programming, Jennifer Leimgruber. "Big D and Bubba's Weekend Wake-Up is the perfect weekend companion to the duo's hilarious, down-home Country, weekday radio program."
The launch of Big D and Bubba's Weekend Wake-Up follows the duo's third CMA Award nomination in the "National Broadcast Personality of the Year" category in 2011. The Big D and Bubba Show also debuted on The American Forces Radio Network last November. Airing live from 6 - 10 a.m. ET on AFN's Country station, Big D and Bubbacan be heard overseas in 177 countries and on all U.S. ships at sea.
