ABC Radio Networks announced a multi-year deal with Los Angeles' hottest morning drive personality, Big Boy, to syndicate "Big Boy's Neighborhood." Big Boy is currently heard on flagship station KPWR (Power 106). Known for his traffic-stopping billboards in L.A. and his appeal to young influencers, Big Boy will launch nationally on 8/20. The show will air live, Monday- Friday, 6am-10am in all time zones.
Also included in the deal is the weekend show which currently airs on 25 affiliates as "Big Boy's Hip Hop Spot." The weekend show features the hottest headlines in Hip Hop, A-list artist interviews and hit music.
