ABC Radio Networks announced veteran radio programmer and on-air personality Tom Kent will join the company’s lineup on 2/2. Kent, who began his radio career at the age of 15 in Winston-Salem on WAIR, has built a loyal fan base of program directors across the country with his weekday and weekend offerings of classic hits that feature live content and music that consistently connects with the Adult 35-54 demographic. The Tom Kent Radio Network consists of Tom Kent, airing live Monday-Friday from 7 p.m. – Midnight ET; The Ultimate Party, a live Saturday evening show with an all party-hit playlist; and My 70s Show on Sundays, which pays homage to the days of platform shoes and bell-bottom jeans and catches up with the artists who defined the decade.
The Tom Kent Radio Network is currently broadcast on more than 100 stations including major markets such as Boston, Dallas, Detroit, Phoenix, Miami, St. Louis, Tampa and Kansas City. ABC Radio Networks will grow the existing affiliate base while managing all advertising sales for the individual programs.
