United Stations Radio Networks announced today that the Classic Hits/Oldies program, “Dick Clark’s Rock, Roll & Remember,” will merge its production efforts and its affiliate lineup with another prominent program in the same radio format, “Rewind with Gary Bryan.” The newly merged program will be known as "Dick Clark Presents Rewind with Gary Bryan" and will provide affiliates with up to 5-hours of programming weekly beginning the week of January 26. Bryan, currently the morning host at KRTH, Los Angeles, will remain in the hosting chair for the newly merged program, and Clark will contribute feature segments to the Dick Clark-branded show.
Simultaneously, Clark is announcing his intent to build out a new web portal targeted to Classic Hits/Oldies consumers. The new site, debuting soon at www.dickclarkonline.com, will feature information related to the Dick Clark radio properties as well as other pertinent content, e-commerce and a new Dick Clark blog. In addition, Clark and USRN will also begin offering syndication of archival versions of the Rock, Roll & Remember programs which began airing in February 1982 and the library of fully-produced programs will be available for the first time to stations.
